In addition to the usual pre-fair publicity, Capstone Vietnam plans to offer several marketing options that are designed to generate additional student/parent interest in participating schools.   

  • Vietnam ranks 9th, according to the 2010 Open Doors international academic mobility report, with over 13,000 students in the U.S.  Most begin their studies at a community college. 
  • Vietnam ranks 2nd in international enrollment at community colleges.
  • 80% of the student visas issued by the U.S. Consulate General in Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) are for community colleges.
  •  The StudyUSA Community Fairs in Vietnam cover all three regions of the country and enable you to meet with students and parents who are interested in a community college experience.   

  Here is what two colleagues had to say about the fall fairs: 

Capstone Vietnam’s StudyUSA Fairs represent great value for community colleges seeking to recruit students from Vietnam. Capstone’s fairs are the only ones that are exclusive to U.S. community colleges/two-year institutions. Their quality of service and attention to detail are some of the best in the business, thanks to their experienced staff and carefully screened volunteers. Capstone will continue to have Cascadia’s business, and I highly recommend their fairs to colleges who have tried other fairs in Vietnam or to those who are entering the Vietnamese student market for the first time.  (Masaru Kibukawa, Director of International Programs, Cascadia Community College

The Capstone Vietnam fairs were extremely well-organized, and I spoke to a steady stream of serious, motivated students who asked good questions. I’m very glad I took part in the fairs and expect to do so again in the future.  (Eddie West, Director, International Programs and Services, Ohlone College)
