Program: Traditional Gap Year - 3 quarters

My Gap year experience was everything I thought it would be and more. I loved Green River College!

Program: Green River to California Gap Year

The Green River to California Gap Year program is great because I got to experience two different American lifestyles – the Pacific Northwest and California beaches.
