isp standordOn March 5, 2020, the International Student Program (ISP) hosted a trip to Stanford University for a customized campus tour. The tour was offered exclusively to Skyline College international students and a total of 16 international students currently studying at Skyline College participated in the tour.

The group began the tour at Bechtel International Center which provides support services for international students at Stanford University. Along with an interesting history of Stanford University, the students were provided with a wide range of information on university admissions as well as on the programs that the university offers. In addition, the group was taken on a tour of the beautiful campus by a current student at Stanford University who shared valuable insights on the application process, classes, and student life as she walked them through the campus. The students thoroughly enjoyed the tour; they had numerous questions for the tour guide and took many pictures of the campus and its iconic buildings.

For many students, this was the first time they had visited Stanford University. They were impressed by the beauty and the breadth of the campus, both in size and class options, and with the opportunities that Stanford University provides to their students in the areas of housing, internships, jobs, and volunteering. We hope that those who participated in the tour will see Stanford University as an option in the future!
