Jody Lehr, Associate Director, International Outreach, Enrollment Management, Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) organized a presentation and mini fair for Study New York to over 150 students and parents at the EducationUSA office in Beijing on March 19, 2015.
This is the third year Ms. Lehr has worked with EducationUSA in China to raise the visibility of New York higher education. Parents and students were enthusiastic. The audience was surprised to learn that over 1/3 of international students studying in NY state attend only 5 NYS based universities, leaving 2/3 to study at the other 265 NYS institutions.
This event underscores Study New York’s mission to broaden awareness and knowledge of all NYS colleges and universities. Study New York materials with the link to the SNY website were distributed to all attendees.
The following schools sent representatives or materials to the event: SUNY Binghamton, Daemen, University of Rochester, NY Film Academy, Teachers’ College-Columbia University, University at Buffalo, St. John’s and Adelphi.
