The International Student Program (ISP) hosted a Skyline College Campus Tour for the American Academy of English (AAE) students on Tuesday, April 4, 2023. Lasheana Dilian Husni, an ISP Student Ambassador, led the campus tour, accompanied by Chikako Walker, Acting Director of International Education.
Students first visited Professor Bryan Swartout’s Introduction to Data Science class to begin the tour. Next, that students headed to Building 19, where they saw the Health Center and Admissions and Records office. At Building 6, the students visited Fireside Dining, a favorite hangout spot for many Skyline College students, and the Bookstore, the go-to place for Skyline College swag and snacks. Next, they went to Building 7 to see a variety of amazing STEM-related facilities and resources, including the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) Center, the Fab Lab, the MESA (Mathematics Engineering Science Achievement) Center, the Biology Lab, Chemistry Lab, Microbiology Lab, and the Biomanufacturing Lab. Thanh Nguyen, a STEM Center Instructional Aide II, and Nick Kapp, a Biology professor, assisted with the tour of building 7.
Lasheana escorted students to Building 12 to enjoy the breathtaking and panoramic view of Pacifica and the Pacific Ocean. This was a great opportunity for a photo op and students took many photos there. The last stop of the tour was Building 5 – students were introduced to the support services at the Learning Center and the Library. The program came to a close with a Q&A session at the Intercultural Center in Building 4 as attendees had lunch. It was a successful tour as the students were able to gain an idea of what community college life is like.
The International Student Program is part of the Global Learning Programs and Services Division. ISP will continue to provide services and programs for international students as well as for the entire Skyline College community.
