SSIS University Fair 2018

April, 2018

Eighty vibrant, brightly colored booths covered the gymnasium at Shanghai Singapore International School (SSIS) on 12 March. To any student walking in for the first time that day, it was a daunting sight. Strangers with million-watt smiles seemed to hurl brochures at anyone who strolled by, and the lists of majors printed on stands behind each of them seemed endless and complex. Everything was so inviting and yet so nerve-wracking. Within the first few minutes of the opening of the University Fair, the only sounds that could be heard were nervous shuffling of feet and hesitant murmuring amongst friends. Representatives of universities from all over the world stood waiting for their first chance at an interaction.

As the clock ticked on, however, more and more students plucked up the courage to approach a representative – an action that would lead to their first of many purposeful conversations. The representatives patiently helped to decrypt the enigma of college. Any uncertainty in the students melted into curiosity and fueled them to further question the delegates. They walked away from each booth smiling and clutching new booklets filled with information.

With so many universities from different areas, it seemed as though students could travel all over the world while standing in the gym. Photos of campuses allowed them to envision what life would be like in Hong Kong, Mainland China, Canada, the United States and even the United Kingdom. They had the chance to compare the traits of universities in several countries. The wide range of visiting universities very much appealed to the international outlook reflected in the students at SSIS.

For most, the University Fair was a golden opportunity to be able to gain more insight into life after graduation. For others, it provided them with the chance to widen their options or verify what they want to achieve. The fair was beneficial to all and very well run by the Counselling Department and student ambassadors.
