UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, SANTA BARBARA
“I signed up for the India tour with KIC UnivAssist because of its reputation for small tours,
personal services, and school connections. After this tour, I know all this is true!”
“The Counselor Tour is a highlight in my year. The ability to connect with counselors, teachers or directors from high schools in India, where we cannot travel, is amazing. We'll continue to host this tour as it continues to bring enthusiastic colleagues, willing to leave misconceptions about our institution at the door.”
- Cuca Acosta, Associate Director, School Services
“KIC UnivAssist runs a well-oiled machine that provides maximum bang for the buck.
Their professional connections provide access to a large number of schools with qualified students, and their philosophy of providing educational
opportunities for the students enhances the experience of both the students and the schools. Be prepared for a non-stop itinerary, but one that
provides excellent outcomes.”
- Vicki Seefeldt West, Senior Assistant Director, Undergraduate Admissions
WASHINGTON and JEFFERSON COLLEGE
“I can think of no better way to increase interest among international students than by hosting counselors on our campus. UnivAssist made it very easy to network with 15 fantastic professionals. I'm already looking forward to hosting another tour!”
“I traveled to Brazil twice with KIC UnivAssist and was very impressed. Their knowledge and experience in
Brazil is invaluable. The small group format and visits to both national and international schools are just right. It was a pleasure to meet Brazilian students
and learn more about Brazilian culture.”
- Seray Teleke, Assistant Director of Admission for International Recruitment

"[UnivAssist] has extensive networks with high schools throughout India, and is eager to assist U.S.
universities in understanding the Indian student and parents’ mindset. The KIC UnivAssist staff are very professional and deliver ambitious, high-value itineraries

giving us the opportunity to feature IUPUI’s educational program offerings in ways that would not be possible working solely from the United States."

of the U.S. universities on the tour. The whole experience is individualized, supportive, well-organized, effective, and enjoyable."

UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA - SANTA CRUZ
"Hosting the Indian Counselor Tour, I was truly impressed by the professionalism of all the counselors and
staff who visited! It was truly a mutually beneficial tour ... counselors learned a great deal from being right here on our campus and we, too learned a great
deal from their input and perspectives. The relationships that were built were wonderful. Our Chancellor is now planning a trip to India and we are so excited
to have many additional contacts and resources. The focus on the student was very impressive with the goal to ensure the students and families receive the very
best information possible to inform their decisions of where to pursue their degree. Truly a magical day!!!"
- Michelle Whittingham, AVC Enrollment Management
“KIC UnivAssist has become an industry leader in international student recruitment. Their tours
give unprecedented access to key high schools in both established and emerging markets, and their small group format adds tremendous value.
KIC UnivAssist should be an institution’s company of choice when it comes to recruitment tours.”
-Michael A. Brzezinski, Dean, International Programs

- Karen Mark, Assistant Director of International Admission

“KIC UnivAssist is invaluable, enabling access to schools and students I otherwise wouldn't have the opportunity to experience on my own. They constantly advocate to Indian students to understand that access and affordability can co-exist with academic quality.”

SAVANNAH COLLEGE OF ART AND DESIGN
"I had the pleasure of participating in two KIC UnivAssist tours, and SCAD has been present in
all tours to date. UnivAssist’s extensive network of contacts as well as their excellent relationships with teachers and guidance counselors in
India added immense value to the already well-organized events. The itineraries have consistently included first-rate schools to which I have had
little exposure in the past. The small group format gives ample opportunity for all participants to introduce their institutions before engaging
in direct conversations with prospective students. The KIC staff is professional, friendly, and exhibit an impressive nimbleness in adjusting and
accommodating changes and requests on the go. I happily recommend KIC UnivAssist to anyone looking to recruit quality students in India!"
- Vlad Neykov, International Admission
ADLER SCHOOL OF PROFESSIONAL PSYCHOLOGY
"KIC exceeded my expectations for recruitment in India. I was able to deliver presentations to targeted
audiences. As a specialized school, this was especially important to me. The counselors at KIC were professional and respected at the colleges I visited,
and my presentations were all well received. International recruitment is only a small part of my responsibilities so it was very helpful to have these
visits arranged by a reputable partner."
- Craig Hines, Associate Vice President of Admissions

"There is no other way to travel once you have become a UnivAssist traveler! UnivAssist takes recruitment travel to the next level with their one-of-a-kind team and their indispensable knowledge of higher education.”
- Me'Lisa Greenidge, International Admissions Counselors
SAINT LOUIS UNIVERSITY
"KIC UnivAssist puts together an extremely well organized Counselor Tour event. Our office traditionally
hosts a counselor fly in event which requires a lot of work and coordination, but KIC UnivAssist makes it easier for us to put together a great program as
they focus on logistics of getting the counselors here. The group consisted of counselors from top schools in various regions of India and I believe all
had an excellent opportunity to really get to know SLU and will be able to share this with their students."
- Harvey Werner, Assistant Director - Office of Admission
SLIPPERY ROCK UNIVERSITY
“The KIC UnivAssist’s Counselor Tour gave us the opportunity to showcase our faculty and campus in a way that isn't possible through our visits to international schools. We also were able to meet personally and in a meaningful way with a variety of counselors from around the world. We expect that this will have a big impact on our international recruitment efforts. While the students may change from year to year it is the relationships with the schools that are key to successful global engagement. We are excited to take what we've learned and incorporate this into our recruitment strategies.”
HAWAI'I PACIFIC UNIVERSITY
"I was extremely impressed with the overall level of service, planning, efficiency, and execution of the KIC
UnivAssist recruitment tour. Everything, from the pre-check in at the hotels and airports to the school visits were so well coordinated by the UnivAssist staff that I was
able to direct my full attention on meeting with students, parents, and counselors. Even though it was my first trip to India, I did not have to give a second thought
to logistical concerns! The school visits were well organized and gave the tour participants an opportunity to present to and meet with well-qualified and motivated
students all across the country. Additionally, what is particularly impressive is the fact that it is evident that UnivAssist genuinely cares about the students’ success,
which helps to ensure that each student is advised and matched with the university that is the best fit with his/her future goals. Within a short time of returning
from my trip we have already seen increased student interest and applicants."

UNIVERSITY OF TOLEDO
“This is my second trip to Brazil with KIC UnivAssist, who again are providing excellent services of getting us in the best schools. I come down here because we are devoted to only undergraduates, and it helps me gain access to the high school models. I have done bigger fairs in Brazil before, but KIC gets me in the market that is most important for us in this country.”
- Mark Schroeder
UNIVERSITY OF KANSAS
"Traveling on the KIC UnivAssist India Tour was a remarkable opportunity for KU to extend its reach into the
heart of the growing Indian pool of prospective undergraduate students. We visited excellent carefully selected high schools who warmly hosted our small diverse
group of U.S. institutions. The organizers of the tour are well-connected and widely-respected by key secondary school counselors and administrators. Logistically
well-planned and coordinated, this fast-paced tour covered a lot of territory in a short amount of time, giving our institutions a means to establish contact with
seriously-interested, well-prepared Indian high school students, their counselors and parents. UnivAssist staff are professional, ethical and responsive to the
needs and feedback of the U.S. institutions. Students, counselors and parents trust this group’s integrity and knowledge of the U.S. system and educational options
