The Ecobank Pan African Centre (EPAC) situated in the sprawling highbrow Victoria Island, Lagos played host to the annual USA College and Career Fairs in Lagos last week. The Fair provides opportunity for prospective international students learn directly from admissions officers from US college representatives. They learn about application requirements, funding opportunities and everything that U.S. education has to offer. It is usually organized by the U.S. Mission.
U.S. Consul General, Will Stevens at the Fair said that America remains a leading destination for international students, noting the United States offers students an unrivaled educational experience, flexibility, and diversity.
“We are happy to provide Nigerian students who wish to study in the United States a unique opportunity to learn about the diversity of the programs offered at various U.S. educational institutions,”
Managing Director, Ecobank Nigeria, Bolaji Lawal stated that he was impressed with partnering the US agency to provide an avenue for students willing to further their education in United States to interact with the college representatives. He was optimistic that the admission seekers will now have firsthand information that would inform their choices.
The Fair attracted various schools from Lagos state including interested members of the public.
