Consular Reception
Study New York at ICEF

During the second week of December, Doug Langhans, our board member from SUNY Cortland, represented Study New York at the annual International Consultants for Education and Fairs (ICEF) 2015 North American Workshop in Miami, Florida. This workshop has over 1,000 participants and is the largest event ICEF hosts outside of their home base in Germany.The workshop brings together recruitment agents, colleges, universities, language institutes and high schools to meet face-to-face and discuss international education trends and recruitment opportunities. ICEF does an excellent job vetting the agents who participate to make sure they are reputable. Doug held 45 individual meetings with agents, and he had numerous meetings and conversations with other educational institutions and service providers throughout the three-day event.

ICEF helps Study NY promote New York State as a destination for international students by providing our consortium with a free booth at their workshop. In addition, we receive a full-page color advertisement in the Educator and Service Provider Catalogue that is given to all agents attending the event. They understand the value of a consortium and do all they can to help us achieve our mission.

Fall at Hofstra – I found this incredible scene when the sun sets and shines on the golden leaves creating a unique orange halo in between sky and horizon when I was studying in the dorm lounge.

My subject is The Hudson River Park. It portrays a different perception of life in New York City. It is a place where people can peacefully enjoy themselves and observe the different spectrums of the river. It allows individual mind-sets to come in place by observing the life of the people and of nature.

This is my contribution to the photo contest. One of the reasons why I love studying in the U.S. is because you do so much more than just studying. Whether it is a a game of frisbee on campus, watching a game of our hockey team or taking part in the regular trips that are organized. In the picture, you can see an impression from one of our trips to Niagara Falls, which was organized from the International Relations team of Niagara University. We had a fun time and this snapshot represents this joy very well.
