On January 7, Skyline College held its spring 2020 orientation for the incoming international students. The International Student Program (ISP) hosted the orientation, which kicked off with the Vice President of Instruction, Dr. Jennifer Taylor-Mendoza, and Dean of Global Learning Programs and Services Division, Russell Waldon, welcoming the students to our campus. Dr. Taylor-Mendoza spoke about how Skyline College has long been committed to inclusion and diversity in the community and how international students play a big part in that. Just this year, ISP welcomed students from over 20 countries worldwide.
Students started their morning by enjoying coffee and America’s favorite, donuts, for breakfast, followed by a meet-and-greet with the ISP staff. Moreover, there were some fun activities like a campus tour, live music, a lucky draw and a welcome lunch for the students.
On Day 2, students had their placement tests and test scores were released. On the 3rd and final day of the orientation, students met their respective counselors to discuss their student education plans and registered for classes.
We can’t wait to see our new and returning students on campus. Happy New Year!
