Education USA Pakistan 2017

Roots International Schools hosted the USEFP #EducationUSA South Asia College Fair 2017 at Wellington Campus on 20th September 2017. The exhibition had 12 US universities representatives who gave the students of RIS a one-on-one counseling session sharing details about their Undergraduate programs, eligibility requirements, admission details, and various scholarship opportunities. This was a unique opportunity for the students to gain crucial insight into the technicalities involved in applying to US universities. The students of RIS took keen interest in the event, exchanged email addresses with representatives and had an encouraging experience. This was an opportunity for students to gain hands-on knowledge about these institutes which is extremely beneficial, especially in the college applications season. The universities were: Hiram College, Merrimack College, Colorado State University, Minerva School at KGI, De Pauw Universoty, Ohio Wesleyan University, Siena College, University of Evalnsvilee, Stony Brook University, University of Missuori – Kansas City, Albion College along with officials from the U.S. Consulate and #EducationUSA Advisers. The tour was designed as a cultural experience and recruitment opportunity for accredited US colleges and universities. The South Asia Tour provided an opportunity for our brightest high school students to obtain current and accurate information about academics and admissions at accredited US colleges and universities. In addition to meeting prospective students, university representatives interacted with counselors, the principals, faculty, and the rest of the administrative staff of all the RIS high school campuses.
