Envisage International Newsletter

Welcome to the 11th issue of the Envisage International Newsletter. Can you believe the summer is flying by and we are in August already? As students prepare to leave their home countries and begin to arrive on campus, I am sure that they are keeping everyone busy. Just like you, we are in our most hectic season.

In this issue, we will reflect on our new clients, have a Q&A with the Associate Director of International Recruitment at SUNY Brockport, point out a few highlights from our loan business and as always, we update you on what upcoming conferences you can visit with us in person.

Happy Summer!
Envisage International Corporation

This Month’s Highlights
Welcome to our New Partners!

CollegeWeekLive: CWL is a leader in connecting students with colleges via online college fairs. As we did in the Spring, we will be helping to promote CWL’s Fall fairs to our community of international students. This fall, we will help promote International Day, Study Abroad Day and SUNY Day, to name a few.

John F. Kennedy University - We welcome JFK University on board. JFK is a private non-profit university with three campuses in the San Francisco Bay area. JFK University joins their sister University, National University as our latest Featured School partner.

CSI - We have renewed our relationship with CSI to help their Chicago and Boston locations. In particular, we will promote their Intensive English Program (IEP) at the ESL Academy, which offers academic English courses from beginner to advanced levels with a curriculum designed to prepare students for U.S. college and university courses.

For more information how you can become a Featured School or lead client, contact Wini Puglielli.

International Student Orientation

With the new school year quickly approaching, a lot of schools are currently preparing for their international student orientations. Many colleges and universities offer our individual health insurance brochures to students during their orientations. The most popular plan offered is our Student Secure plan.

Our Student Secure plan is a guaranteed issue plan, with prices starting at $33 per month. Students can easily purchase online and have same day coverage. The plan includes coverage for maternity, sports, mental health, and emergency medical evacuation/repatriation and more.

Please contact Annemarie Keller to order your brochures in an amount necessary to put one in each student’s orientation package.

What is your background and current role?

I am currently the Associate Director of International Recruitment. My background started in education as an English teacher. I then moved into higher education where I have worked in admissions and student services for over 6 years. I believe that my experience as a teacher has helped to better understand what students and families are facing when looking for the right university as well as understanding what it takes for a student to well qualified for admission to a select university.

One day we would hope to have a student from every region of the world. The areas we are able to travel to at this time are China, Southeast Asia, South Korea, Canada, Middle East, and South America. We would really like to work with more students from Africa as well.

We currently have about 60 international students with that number growing very quickly over the next few years.

International Financial Aid

The new academic year is almost here and you may find that many of your students are looking for additional funding to pursue their education overseas.

Whether you work with international or study abroad students, it's not too late for them to apply for student loans! International Student Loan is proud to make the process even easier by offering the loan comparison tool which instantly matches students with a list of eligible lenders that will work for their school.

Students can evaluate each lender, find the loan that's right for them, and apply right online with instant approval within weeks. You can check out the comparison tool here, and you are welcome to share this information through your school's list-serve, orientation packets, and directly with students.

You can contact Jennifer Frankel directly for more information about our loan tool and how we can work together to provide financial solutions to your students.
