SYIS hosted its Second Annual College Fair on Tuesday, April 19, 2016 from 2:00 pm until 3:30 pm in the Lobby of SYIS.  Over 20 colleges/universities were represented at the fair, including several reputable universities of SYIS staff members including Grace College, Indiana Wesleyan University, Covenant College, Cedarville University, Southwest Baptist University, and Liberty University (the largest Christian university in the world).  Other top schools participating included Yonsei University (Korea), The University of Michigan,  Calvin College, The University of California – Irvine, Samford University, The State University of New York (SUNY) campus in Korea, The University of British Columbia (Canada), Kendall College (Chicago), Les Roches International School of Hotel Management, Ecole Hoteliere de Lausanne, (Switzerland), The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Liaoning Normal University – Missouri State University (Dalian), Northeastern University (Shenyang), and many others.  In addition, we were pleased that the EducationUSA Adviser from the US Consulate General in Shenyang was in attendance to assist with questions about studying at universities in the United States of America.

 

Most importantly, this event gave SYIS students and parents an opportunity to engage in direct discussions with College Admissions Representatives from around the world.  They were able to ask about particular academic programs, majors, scholarships and financial aid opportunities as well as learn about the details of each university’s application requirements and procedures for international students.
