The Skyline College International Student Program held the International Student Welcome in the Multicultural Center on January 26, 2018.

The program provides a platform for new and continuing international students to socialize and feel a part of their new campus and get to know other students on campus as well. The event was well-attended and was also an opportunity for international students to showcase their hidden talents.

The Student Mixer was a joyous event. It comprised of domestic and international students, students from Grace International High School in China, as well as faculty and staff members, including the Skyline College President, Dr. Regina Stanback Stroud.

The different performances and games amplified the lively energy of the room. The African and salsa dances got everybody’s bodies moving and the Nepalese students showed off their beautiful voices by performing various Nepalese and American songs. The Japanese students organized a chopstick game that brought out the people’s most competitive spirits. Hanqing Bien, President of Chinese Student and Scholar Association closed the event with a Chinese rap that set the crowd on fire.

Next time, don’t miss out on the great food, entertainment and vibrant crowd that made the party an overall success. It proves that Skyline College’s international community really knows how to throw a good party!

The International Student Program is part of Global Learning Programs and Services Division. If you need more information, please contact Chikako Walker, Coordinator at 650-738-7179.
