This year we had a combined welcome with new domestic students from Shoreline’s president, Dr. Cheryl Roberts, and Associated Student Government President Yorin Anggari. It was a wonderful morning getting to know each other and meeting their new community.

On the Saturday before classes started, some of the new students joined the International Peer Mentors on a trip around Seattle. They visited popular places like Seattle Center, Pike Place Market, and Alki Beach.

Shoreline Study Abroad

For more than ten years running, Shoreline psychology instructor Bob Thompson has been taking students to a rural area in the Blue Mountains to work in local schools and learn about Jamaican life and culture from the community.

Every single person we’ve talked to about this study abroad program has been deeply affected by the lessons they learned about the world and about themselves. We decided to record a brief interview with one of these students so she could share her powerful experience with all of you.

Sunfest!

1

There’s nothing more refreshing on a warm and sunny spring day than a pie in the face, right?

On Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday last week (May 20-22), Shoreline’s Student Leadership Center held their annual Sunfest celebration. During Sunfest, there are many performances and activities for students, as well as free food and drinks! On each of these days, the courtyard was crowded with students enjoying the beautiful weather and having fun.

There was a pie eating contest, in which people see who can eat a whole pie the fastest without using their hands:

Students also had the chance to tie-dye shirts (tie-dye is a way of making a super colorful shirt):

And there was a big bouncy obstacle course for people to race through:

One student club, the HEROES Club, held a creative fundraiser for victims of the earthquake in Nepal. Students could buy paper plates full of whipped cream to smash in the faces of staff and student volunteers. In all, they collected almost $200!

Shoreline DECA 2015 Club Takes Top Prizes at Regional Competition

DECA_2015_StateCompetition_01

Shoreline’s DECA 2015 team returned from the Collegiate DECA Pacific Northwest Career Development Conference held Feb. 19-21 in Victoria, BC with five first place wins, making this year’s team the most decorated in recent memory.

Of the 17 students representing Shoreline in 13 different events at this year’s conference, 15 students placed third or better. All 17 Shoreline participants qualified for the 2015 Collegiate DECA International Career Development Conference, April 17-22, in Orlando, Fla. The International Conference will involve 1,200 students from Canada, China and the United States.

DECA has been active at Shoreline Community College since 1966 and this is the best overall finish by our students since 1992. This year’s performance is made all the more impressive by the fact that this marked the first year competing for most of DECA 2015’s members — only one of the several first-place-winning team members is a second-year DECA competitor.

In addition, the team competing in the category of Emerging Technologies, made up of Nicolas Ho and (MJ) Munkhjargal Jambalsuren, both first-year DECA students, even managed to receive a perfect score of 100 points from each of their three judges. They earned this top score despite a setback that caused Ho to have to present his and Jambalsuren’s presentation alone.

DECA faculty advisor David Starr said, “It has been an honor to work with such an outstanding group of students who have successfully represented Shoreline’s commitment to excellence in their international competition.”

Shoreline’s State Finalists were:
Nicholas Ho, 1st Place, Emerging Technologies
Xanne Sarka and Yvonne Hill, 1st Place, Entrepreneurship
Jessica Irby, 1st Place, Hospitality Marketing
Kenneth Lo and Pei-Chen Wang, 1st Place, International Marketing
Dominic Dumas, 1st Place, Professional Selling
Omar Marouf and Liem Nguyen, 2nd Place, Sports & Entertainment Marketing
Spiridon Pappas and Simran Sandhu, 2nd Place, International Marketing
Shaina Hibbert, 2nd Hospitality Marketing
Teisha Billings, 2nd Place, Human Resource Management
Resmin Sengider, 2nd Place, Advertising Campaign
Rachel Degginer, 3rd Place, Retail Management

Also qualifying for the International Conference were:
Suzette Dutton, Entrepreneurship
Lisa Yang, Professional Selling
