We traveled the country in search of this year’s Featured School winner. In our search, we attended, presented and exhibited at a total of nine NAFSA Regional Conferences spreading the word about our international student lead, loan or insurance business. We talked to a lot of people and became friends with many NAFSANs. Along the way, we collected business cards for our grand prize of an annual Featured School profile on our flagship website, InternationalStudent.com.
We picked the winner last week and after having the time to notify them and their next of kin, we want to congratulate, Patricia Wells of the University of West Georgia. Patricia stopped by and visited with us in Mobile, Alabama at the Region VII conference and dropped off her business card for the drawing.
So what did Patricia win? She won hero status with the University of West Georgia and especially with the International Admissions office. UWG won a Featured School profile on InternationalStudent.com. For the next year, we will be highlighting UWG on our site, giving millions of student’s information about why they would want to study in West Georgia and what type of education they will receive. We will be marketing them to our community of over 4 million international students through banner ads, social media, our very popular International Student newsletter and more. All in an effort to drive traffic to the UWG profile page where students have the ability to send their contact information, nationality, what they want to study and when, English proficiency scores and more directly to the UWG admissions office instantaneously. UWG now has the ability to reach out directly to the student increasing their international enrollment.
The University of West Georgia joins the University of North Florida, Johnson & Wales, National University, Sacred Heart and the Ohio Center for Broadcasting’s Denver campus as our newest Featured School Partner. So congratulations again to Patricia and the University of West Georgia for winning one year as our Featured School partner and for winning free international student leads.
