Green River Students Transfer to Top US Universities

GRCC graduates transfer to top universities

GRCC graduates with accounting instructor, Brenda Bindschatel.

Green River welcomed a record number of new international students to the college this fall. We look forward to congratulating them in one, two or three years when they graduate and move on to top US universities.

As the global economic turmoil continues with roller coaster stock markets and dramatic currency fluctuations, families around the world are concerned about the present financial situation as well as uncertainty about the future. During these difficult times, what is certain is that US university education is a solid investment.

Studies show that university graduates earn more than students who do not go on to university. Families who invest today in university education for their children set their children up for success in tomorrow's global economy. A degree from a top US university is proven to hold its value over time and around the world.

The United States remains the world leader in higher education. According to the 2010 Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) 17 of the top 20 universities in the world are US institutions.

International students from all over the world take Green River Community College's academic program and transfer to top US universities. Green River students have reported admission to 38 of the top 100 universities. Listed below are some of the universities:

Columbia University Cornell University
Johns Hopkins University New York University
Purdue University University of Arizona
University of California - Berkeley University of California - Los Angeles (UCLA)
University of Colorado University of Florida
University of Michigan University of Southern California
University of Texas University of Washington
