The visits are part of Stamford’s College Counseling Program aimed at providing early preparation for students by informing them of their study choices and creating introductions to the best universities in the world. The program also includes individualized college counseling through which each student is assisted in finding a university that best fits them and their pursuits. The four university representatives met with 21 students from Grade 9, answering questions about subjects offered and campus life. “Choosing a university is one of the big decisions these students will make in their life. We believe that introducing students to universities at a younger age enables them to make goals and gives them time to think about how they will actually get there, ” Ms. Leslie Tam, Head of College Counseling and Careers at Stamford said. “Each of these universities has a reputation for excellence while offering a distinctive approach to learning.” “Stamford’s goal is to prepare our students for entry into the best universities in the world. That’s why we invited these university representatives to meet our students,” Ms. Tam said. Stamford opened its new campus on Upper Serangoon Road in 2012. At a cost of $300 million, the campus represents the largest Kindergarten to Grade 12 education project in the region. The new phase II development is slated to open in 2014 and includes a world-class Innovation Center where students and business leaders come together to solve problems, generate ideas and create intellectual property. Stamford offers students the opportunity to graduate with US Advanced Placement credits, a High School Diploma, an International Baccalaureate Diploma and a way of thinking that makes them contributing citizens within a global community. The four universities that met with Stamford’s students are: Cornell University (New York State) – Founded in 1865, Cornell is the most educationally diverse member of the Ivy League.

Both a private university and a land-grant institution of New York State, Cornell’s Ithaca campus alone has nearly 20,000 students representing every state and 120 countries and offers a choice from among 4,000 courses in 11 undergraduate, graduate and professional schools. Rice University (Texas) – Opened in 1912 Rice is a preeminent research university with a distinct undergraduate focus. Its emphasis on education is demonstrated by a small student body and 5:1 student-faculty ratio, among the lowest in the top American universities including the Ivy League. The university has produced 101 Fulbright Scholars, 11 Truman Scholars, 24 Marshall Scholars, and 12 Rhodes Scholars. The university has a very high level of research activity for its size, with $115.3 million in sponsored research funding in 2011. Rice is noted for its applied science programs in the fields of artificial heart research, structural chemical analysis, signal processing, space science, and nanotechnology. It was ranked first in the world in materials science research by the Times Higher Education (THE) in 2010. University of Chicago (Illinois) – One of the world’s premier academic and research institutions, the University of Chicago (UChicago) has driven new ways of thinking since it was founded in 1890.
