When in Singapore…

I write this at the risk of being called a cultural barbarian, but when in Singapore, make sure to check out any 7-11. My general advice to foreigners visiting the US is to stay away from 7-11 convenience stores. Any edible item purchased there is not actually edible. However, this rule is different in Singapore. Perhaps the thing I like most about them is that they are about half the size of my college dorm room–yet carry everything you need and did not know you wanted. For example, tea eggs.

Excited about tonight’s APSIA graduate forum at National University of Singapore.

Time to build up frequent flyer miles

When I tell my friends that I am going to Southeast Asia to recruit students, they become insanely jealous. That is until I tell them what my schedule is like. Meeting with prospective students here, meetings with the Institute of International Education there, and then a college fair in the evenings. Sure, we go to exotic places, but we usually only get to see the airports and the hotels. It’s a true shame. Anyway, follow me on this blog as I travel to Singapore, Hanoi and Bangkok. I’ll try to post pictures of the college fairs (and the airports and hotels) and provide you with answers to some of the commonly asked admissions related questions that I receive at college fairs.

On the Road Again

This week was new student orientation at the Josef Korbel School and after a few days of free food, exhausted students and name tags, we start the process all over again with the new student online application now available. Nicole leaves for the Idealist.org Graduate Fair in New York on Wednesday and I leave for the APSIA Graduate Fair Tour in Southeast Asia in two weeks.  Follow us on this blog as we travel the world recruiting next year’s class!

Best,
