We celebrate International Education Week in the United States the week of November 14 to 18 in recognition of the benefits of an international education and cultural exchanges around the world. To celebrate this week, through the EducationUSA Advising Center the U.S. Consulate General Ciudad Juarez and the Chihuahua Business Foundation (Fechac) held a college fair at Fechac in Ciudad Juarez .
Fourteen consular officials representing their alma maters as alumni talked to dozens of young people interested in continuing their studies at a college or university in the United States.
EducationUSA staff provided guidance on the steps needed to study in the United States, and consular officials also provided information about the requirements for applying for a student visa.
“I am very happy to see that young people in Ciudad Juarez are interested in studying in the United States. Educational exchanges are a catalyst for the future of this region, “said U.S. Consul General in Ciudad Juarez, Daria L. Darnell.
Accompanying the Consul General was Minister Counselor for Consular and Consulate Affairs of the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City Ian G. Brownlee, who toured the fair and urged youth to “continue to prepare to work in a global environment.”
“Promoting a comprehensive education is, and has been, one of the priorities of Fechac, with internationalization being one of the areas of focus that we will strengthen through our alliance with the EducationUSA Advising Center,” said Martín Alonso, President of the Local Fechac Board in Ciudad Juarez.
We invite all who were unable to attend the fair to visit the EducationUSA Advising Center in Ciudad Juarez, located inside the Chihuahua Business Foundation, Anillo Envolvente 780, Zona Pronaf, Ciudad Juárez, Chih.
