Skyline College may receive more students from an elite Chinese high school in the coming years. A group of students and teachers from Hebei No. 42 High School in Hebei Province, China visited our campus on February 8, 2018. Hebei No.42 High School is one of the most prestigious schools in China, sending many of its graduates to colleges and universities overseas. During the visit to Skyline College, the group had an opportunity to meet the College President, Dr. Regina Stanback Stroud, as well as to see the campus and interact with current international students from China.

The visit was co-hosted by the International Student Program (ISP) and the College’s Chinese Student and Scholar Association (CSSA). Hanqing Bian, CSSA President, and Sufang Tang, ISP Student Ambassador, took the lead in providing a campus tour upon the group’s arrival. The group was then greeted by alumni from Hebei No.42 High School, who are currently attending Skyline College. The group engaged in lively discussions that included CSSA members and ISP Student Ambassadors. They discussed various topics such as university transfers and student life and support services available to international students. Professor Hellen Zhang, Accounting Professor as well as a Skyline College alumna, joined the meeting to provide an introduction to the college. Students commented that among all three colleges they visited within the District, Skyline College is “the most beautiful” and they had the best visit at the college. We hope that those who participated in the visit will join Skyline College in the future!

The International Student Program is part of Global Learning Programs and Services Division. If you need more information, please email or call 650-738-7021.
