UScampus Guide Spring 2016 is now live!

The Spring Edition of UScampus Guide is now live! This was my first season taking over for the magazine and I am so pleased that it has finally come to fruition. We have made so many upgrades to the magazine interface and are so proud of the improved look of USCG. Away with the outdated, non user friendly PDF version, and in with the new, modern, and very user friendly design. The pages are now flippable, and links are now clickable.

This season’s USCG features 15 new articles that discuss finance, living in the U.S., studying tips, career, and visa advice. The magazine spotlights writers such as Jessica Peyton Roberts of Aim High Writing College Consulting and Anum Yoon of Current on Currency. USCG also introduces our readers to Go Overseas, an excellent resource for finding study, intern, and volunteer abroad programs, along with ratings, reviews, and resources. We also couldn’t wait to share with our students the services of Flywire by peertransfer, an incredibly effective way to make international payments.

In February, AIEF launched its biannual USCG cover photo contest. Schools from across the nation sent in their submissions in hopes of winning a featured section in the magazine and their photo on the cover. This season’s theme was “Favorite Class in Action” and Peralta Community College District won with the most votes! Shout out to Mr. Drew Gephart for his impressive social media outreach! Schools that didn’t win will have a chance to enter again in the Fall or future editions.

This issue has so many amazing resources for all of our readers that we are so excited to share with you all on our new and improved online magazine! Go check it out now!
