"CollegeFindMe leads the college search and application process, giving us unique insight into emerging trends in student recruitment."
BOSTON (PRWEB) December 13, 2017
As the leader in the college search and application process, CollegeFindMe is convening top universities in the US in a series of live recruitment broadcasts to prospective Chinese students. This is the first time that schools from across the US are working together to engage with high-performing Chinese students in a live web broadcast.
More than 1 million students from across the globe come to the United States for higher education, pumping an estimated $39 billion into the US economy. With students from China making up the largest share from any single country, recent data from the Institute of International Education shows a decline in the overall number of international students coming to the US. A report by Open Doors, a survey of more than 2,000 colleges, found that only New England saw growth in the number of international students – every other region in the US reported declining numbers, with the mid-part of the country taking the biggest hit.
“It’s no secret that the number of international students coming to college in the US is declining,” said Christina Bai, CollegeFindMe CEO. “CollegeFindMe leads the college search and application process, giving us unique insight into emerging trends in student recruitment. Our university partners look to CollegeFindMe to help drive student applications. With a strong user base in China, we can increase student interest in US higher education, and reinforce the world-class nature and value of an American education.”
“International students play an important role in US higher ed,” said Miguel Alvarez, Associate Director for International Admissions, at UMass Boston. “This live CollegeFindMe broadcast gives us unique access to high-performing students in China, the top home country of international students. We can personally introduce our school to Chinese students, letting them know how welcome they are at UMass Boston.”
Broadcasts will take place on December 13 and 15 at 8 am EST. CollegeFindMe is planning additional international outreach in 2018, enabling colleges to find prospective students at a lower cost than traditional recruitment practices.
