Sending 2020 Off With The Global Crimson Education Team

DEC 09, 2020 • 8 min read

We’re bidding 2020 adieu and wishing everyone in the Crimson community a happy holiday season in celebration of all our students’ hard work during an unforgettable year.

It’s safe to say that 2020 has been among the most memorable years of the last decade - for better or for worse. This year has posed many challenges for Crimson students, who have taken each obstacle in stride! We’ve seen students nail remote interviews, conquer months of virtual classes, and even drive hours away to take their standardized tests at COVID-safe testing locations.

With teams across 20 global locations, we’ve had the privilege of working with students from every corner of the globe. For this year especially, the Crimson team is brimming with appreciation for all the hard work that has gone into this application round.

2020 has been a testament to the resilience and determination of all our students. In the spirit of reflection, we’ve compiled the proudest moments and some words of wisdom from several of our country managers around the world. Here’s what they had to say:

Team Australia:

“This year posed many unique challenges for our Australian students, but it brought out the best in them and their families. Throughout the lockdowns and school disruptions, our students learned new ways to communicate and remained steadfast in their goals. The best part of working at Crimson is being able to watch our talented students take huge strides on the path to achieving their dreams — and this year we cannot be prouder to be part of their life-changing journey.”

From Team Brazil to all of you, we wish you the best of luck!"
