Over 60 Universities Participate in GRC Transfer Fair

By International Programs, November 15, 2022

Over 60 universities participated in the transfer fair at Green River College this past month, including top schools such as Columbia University, University of Washington, UC San Diego, Rutgers, Embry-Riddle, Wisconsin, Iowa University, and Arizona State University. 

Green River College International Programs hosts transfer fairs twice a year so that students can meet with representatives from four-year universities in the USA.  This gives students the opportunity to meet with school reps from across the country - all in one room.

Nearly 200 students attended the fair and they were well-prepared with questions in hand, thanks to a Transfer Fair Workshop that was held the week before in order to brief students on what questions to ask. International Student Advisors talked about the importance of asking clarifying questions in order to find the right school. Some examples included questions about costs, scholarships, location/weather, admission rate, and career opportunities.

Universities reps were very impressed by our students, one representative from, Seattle Pacific University said, "We ended up with some good engagement from the event, so I wanted to briefly extend my thanks to you for hosting the event with such a welcoming environment." 

Kerry Kwon, International Student Advisor and Manager of University Partnerships said, "We are thankful for everyone that participated in our first post-covid in-person transfer fair. We will strive to make improvements and create better opportunities for both representatives and students."

The next Transfer Fair is scheduled for winter term, February 1st from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm in the Student Union.
