Shoreline Community College welcomed students from 24 countries, representing 5 of the 7 continents, to Fall 2018 Orientation.
At Orientation, students registered for classes, got set up with their new email accounts, and learned what they need to know to thrive as new international students. Plus, they got to meet their 2018-19 Associated Student Government President, Denish Oleke, who shared his own experience with them and inspired them to get involved on campus.
Shoreline staff and student leaders also took our new international students on a tour of Seattle and introduced them to some of the most popular places to visit in the city, including Seattle Center, Pike Place Market, and Alki Beach.
International Education was thrilled to welcome a great group of new international students for fall quarter 2017! We had students from over 30 different countries arrive for orientation.
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.
We’re all excited to get to know them better and wish them and all of Shoreline the best of luck during fall quarter!

Last week, Shoreline Community College welcomed new international students!
The new students come from fifteen different countries, including Peru, Cambodia, Venezuela, the Philippines, and Kuwait! They had many opportunities to get to know each other and Shoreline Community College during orientation, like competing in a scavenger hunt that took them throughout campus.
On Friday they went with the International Peer Mentors on a tour of the University of Washington and sightseeing in downtown Seattle. It was the perfect weather, and the students enjoyed a taste of summer in Seattle.
Please welcome them and help make Shoreline Community College feel like a home away from home!
