Green River staff, faculty and advisors encourage our international students to dream big. We believe that there is nothing that they cannot achieve when they set their minds to it. Students who work hard and take this advice to heart, transfer to top universities. 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 graduate programs world-wide.
We also highlight outstanding alumni in our Partners and Student newsletter. If you have a great story to tell, please contact Leo Harten, International Alumni Coordinator. Read more student testimonials.
