International Student Program Hosts Skyline College Day

ISP StudentsInternational Student Program (ISP) hosted a group of 11 students from American Academy of English (AAE) on campus. AAE is a language school located in San Francisco, that have been sending qualified international students to Skyline College. The event was our first effort to give the college experience to our prospective international students from AAE.

AAE students were greeted by a group of current Skyline College international students upon their arrival. The students then observed a business class taught by Professor Hui Pate to get a feel for an American classroom. After the classroom observation, ISP Manager, Wissem Bennani, gave a presentation about the college and moderated a panel discussion with the current Skyline College international students. The dialogue between AAE students and the college international students continued throughout the campus tour and the lunch that took place after the panel discussion. AAE students were all impressed how beautiful the campus is and enjoyed meeting with the faculty, staff and students at Skyline College.

ISP will continue to provide services and programs for international students as well as for the entire Skyline community. If you are interested in learning more about future ISP programs and events, contact ISP office at skyinternational@smccd.edu or call (650) 738-7021.
