The Skyline College International Student Program (ISP) held an event to wave their final goodbyes to the international students who will be transferring to universities after this semester. This get-together took place in the Multicultural Center on May 18, 2017.
The emcees of the event were the current International Student Club (ISC) President, Candice Sum and the new president, Naledi Mthembu. Dr. Tammy Robinson, Dean of Global Learning Services and Programs presented the transfer students with certificates to celebrate their achievements. To keep the students entertained, members of the ISC recited various music acts and a spoken word poetry performance. There was also a photo booth for students to capture the moments and share with their friends. The people in attendance ate their hearts out with food from all around the world. They had coxinha from Brazil, fried rice from China, Nepalese dumplings and lastly, Arabian baklava for dessert. To close off the event, a few lucky winners received prizes from the raffle that was drawn.
Many of the transferring students are transferring to top schools such as UC Berkley and UC Davis. Even though it is sad to see them leave, we are so proud of their achievements and wish them the best for their journeys after Skyline College.
