On January 10, 2022, the International Student Program (ISP) kicked off the Spring 2022 semester with its Open House for new international students! More than fifty new international students were invited to attend the Open House which provided them with an opportunity to meet with the ISP staff and see our beautiful campus in person. The event was held on a drop-in basis to ensure the safety of the students, and it included an hourly campus tour led by the ISP student ambassadors. Lasheana, a new international student from Indonesia, said that she “had a really good time”. Lasheana was a Global Online Learning (GOL) student for the last two semesters where she took online classes from Indonesia. She said this semester will be a different experience for her as she is finally on campus. Students were exchanging their contact information and some of them decided to get together for dinner afterward! Continuing students from last semester were also invited to the event as we were not able to offer an in-person welcome last fall. Lynn who joined Skyline College in Fall 2021 noted “This is an orientation for me. It’s nice!”


ISP is welcoming more than fifty new international students from fourteen countries this semester. ISP will continue to provide services and programs for international students as well as for the entire Skyline College community.
