The University of Arizona had a great time meeting the excellent students in the GCC. A big thank you for organizing an outstanding recruitment circuit and introducing us to amazing students, parents and high school counselors. Looking forward to the next tour

Weston Brown

The organisers prepared a great and efficient recruiting circuit in the Middle East. I was impressed with the different types of schools we visited. I came back with meaningful information about the various school systems in the region and a great pool of prospective students. The fairs in each city provided another layer of student contact, including those interested in graduate studies. The tour organizers had in mind three factors that are critical in our decision for recruitment efforts: time, impact and budget. I look forward to future involvement.
