Program Highlights

U.S. University Alumni Fair
Description: The U.S. University Alumni Fair was organized by the EducationUSA center in Chennai for the first time. Sixteen alumni representing 14 U.S. universities participated in the event and shared their U.S. study experiences with prospective students and parents. It was a huge success with over 200 visitors attending the event at the American Library. Drawing from their own experiences, the alumni shared insights and anecdotes from their personal journey to the U.S. and back. Their participation and willingness to share their personal experience of studying at a U.S. university was appreciated by the students.
EducationUSA Auto
Description: The Public Affairs Section of the U.S. Consulate designed the EducationUSA Auto by painting it with EducationUSA logo and information. An American Officer along with an EducationUSA adviser visited some local high schools in the auto and engaged students in an interactive U.S. destination quiz with giveaways (prizes included EdUSA T-shirts, and EdUSA fridge magnets). This was a huge draw with the students. The auto visit offered these school students an opportunity to get information about higher education opportunities in the U.S. and also ask the American diplomats questions about the U.S. politics. In all, we reached out to 305 students during these visits.
