Testimonials from Class of Fall 2019

"The information I got about all topics were useful. I did not know about registration before that session, but I learned how to do it by myself and was not confused. For transfer planning, I got an image of how I can find my future university to transfer to. For Ed. Plan, I got help from my adviser when I met him, and at this session I learned more by repeating. Regarding personal development, I got useful information. Thank you!"

"This class is really useful, especially for international students like me. At first, I knew nothing about Green River College and the US, but because of this class, I learned more about studying in the US and Green River." 

"The topics in this course really made things easier and more clear to study in US." 

"Really nice instructor with innovative ideas which made class fun."
