"Green River College is overall a great college with an exceptional staff and a beautiful campus. From the moment I decided to go there, to the day I left, I always felt in good hands and cared for by the staff and especially the International Programs.
I also got the chance to work for the International Programs while I was there. We were a couple of people who blogged and told about our experiences, but I also got to conduct a focus group concerning interaction between international and domestic students. It took place over a couple of weeks and it was a really giving experience. It taught me a lot about leadership and culture differences and I’m grateful that the International Programs gave me the opportunity. Be sure to reach out to them if you study there and they will be very likely to help you.
The students at the college are also great. I met a bunch of amazing people from so many different countries and I cherish all the friendships I made. There is a great culture diversity and it is fun and learning experience to meet all these people."

"While I was there I made sure to attend student activities. I was part of the soccer team, which I can highly recommend if you like to play soccer. We had a weekly game and that was a good way to make friends and take fun trips. I also attended many events that the school planned. This is something that brought me a lot of joy. I went whale watching, hiking, on camping trips and Seattle day trips. It was always a great time and you will definitely make a lot of new friends. I really enjoyed renting a car or taking a Greyhound bus to take longer trips. You can easily go skiing, visit Oregon or drive up to Vancouver. It’s a lot of fun.
I would say studying abroad at Green River College has really made an impact on my life and me as a person. The classes I took made me realize that Psychology and Business was the right thing for me to pursue. The friendships I made and all the memories I have now is something I often look back on. I traveled there by myself and was the only Scandinavian in the 6 months I was there, but I met a lot of fantastic people from all over the world. I am forever thankful for the experience I had and can only recommend someone else to do it."
