Green River Alumni Get into Top Graduate Programs

By: Lansing Bryan, Web Communications Specialist and Leo Harten, Director of Alumni

Our Alumni attend Oxford University for their graduate degrees.

Our Alumni continue to prove that "you can go anywhere from here," including graudate programs at Oxford and Cambridge, and fellowships at Harvard.

Green River staff, faculty and advisors encourage our international students to dream big. We believe that there is nothing that you cannot achieve if you set your mind to it. Our students who work hard and take this advice to heart usually transfer to top universities in the nation. What is even more exciting is knowing that these students continue to achieve greatness even after their four year degree. Many go on to get their masters and some have gone on to top graudate programs world-wide.
