  • NAFSA Region II Conference was a great success

    Wednesday, November 2, 2011

    Although the snow seemed to slow many people down in the front range, the NAFSA Region II Conference began with no delay. The conference was held at the Hilton in Ft. Collins, CO just down the street from CSU’s campus. The bulk of the conference consisted of thoughtfully planned sessions where industry professionals led discussions on various international education topics. After each session a 30 minute coffee break was held which allowed representatives from study abroad offices around the region to visit with a select group of exhibitors. IGE was pleased with the turnout and is happy to have met some new faces. For anyone that missed the conference, you can see the 2011 NAFSA Region II Conference program here.
