U.S. colleges are looking for you. You can connect with college and university recruiters of international students from more than 125 schools at a virtual college fair on February 17.

Learn about accredited institutions from all parts of the United States and chat with admissions officers online — all for free. You will be able to attend webinars on undergraduate and graduate study, financial aid and student visas. Participating colleges run the gamut:

  • Large universities, such as Notre Dame and the University of California, Los Angeles.
  • Specialized schools, such as Emory University School of Law and Kent State University College of Business.
  • Community colleges, such as Las Positas College or Santa Rosa Junior College.

The fair, hosted by EducationUSA in partnership with CollegeWeekLive, is the latest in an ongoing series for prospective students to connect with U.S. schools and the EducationUSA Network. In addition to four live virtual fairs held each year, students have access to archived information online and can visit one of 400 EducationUSA centers in 170 countries.

Panamanian student Fiodor Otero started his studies at a community college before transferring to the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts in Los Angeles. He talks in this video about why he thinks the U.S. is a great place to study.
