MTSU participated in the Capstone Vietnam virtual Fall Flex Fairs in five Vietnamese cities in November. These were the first hybrid type virtual fairs that I have done. The format included an MTSU representative on site, a designated translator in the Capstone office, and me, an international student recruiter, on my laptop in Tennessee. Previously, I had done only in person or all online virtual fairs. This format provided the best of both virtual and in person representation. The Capstone assigned representative and translator was outstanding. They were very knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and eager to promote my university. Moreover, the format was easy to use and glitch free. The Capstone staff gave excellent customer service and assistance in building the virtual booths, uploading the required documents, and answering all my questions. After the fair, we were also given important and targeted diagnostics which enabled me to follow up on all the visitors to our booth and all the student participants in the virtual fair. These valuable leads will prove invaluable to our outreach strategy for Vietnamese students. The quality of the prospective students was also excellent. I found them to be very serious, well-qualified, knowledgeable about the US higher education system, and confident to ask the right questions. They seemed to know exactly what they wanted from a US American degree.
I’ve participated in over 30 virtual fairs all around the world this year, and I can say with certainty that the Capstone Vietnam organization is superior. They offer excellent customer service, great access to well-qualified students, and a true commitment to international education. I am grateful to have found such a great partner in Vietnam to promote my university. Please do contact me if you need further information
