Aya Ito - Japan

Aya Ito - Japan

"GRCC offers great support in every area," said Aya Ito.

Aya Ito is from Japan. She came to Green River College in the summer of 2009 as an IESL student and then transferred into the academic program in the fall.

"When I have kids, I will send them to Green River Community College," said Aya Ito. "There is a lot support here. Everybody takes really good care of you."

For example, there are student marketing assistants that speak a different language.  So if your English is not very good, that's okay; there are students here from all over the world that can help answer your questions in your own language.

There is also an orientation at the beginning of each quarter and staff along with peer volunteers help you to learn all about GRCC, the US education system,  insurance, banking, and so on.

If you are having difficulty in some of your classes, there is Tutoring & Resource Center that offers help in all your classes.

If you are wondering what college to go to or how to get into the college of your choice, the advisors will help you with your degree planning.  "My advisor is John Tankersley. If I have a question about a university, we will look at the website together. And many times he knows the people at the university and gives me their contact information."

"Everybody takes really good care of us!"

"When I graduate from GRCC, my goal is to attend the University of Washington in Seattle and major in Business. Someday, I would like to return to Japan and work in the cosmetic industry."
