We would like to thank everyone who stopped by our booth at NAFSA--whether to see a demonstration, enter our drawing, or just to say hello--for making this our best conference ever.

With the impending release of both TDS15 and our SEVIS module, it was nice to hear all the positive feedback about the latest updates and enhancements to Terra Dotta software. If you were unable to stop by our booth at this year’s NAFSA, or were unable to attend the conference in general, we hope you will reach out to with any questions you might have for us.

Congratulations again to the winner of our two tickets to Paris drawing, Judy Mitchell from California Polytechnic University and a special thanks to Student Universe for partnering with us in this drawing.

We look forward to seeing everyone this fall at the NAFSA regional conferences.

It was great to see many of you at the recent NAFSA: Association of International Educators Conference in Boston, Massachusetts. A focus of many of the study abroad sessions included a focus on both increasing total participation numbers and getting students from diverse backgrounds to study abroad.
