Student of the Month: Patricia Kusumaningtyas, Indonesia

By Lansing Bryan, June 1, 2018

Patricia Kusumaningtyas is majoring in Computer Science and will be attending Columbia University in the fall. She was also admitted to Barnard College, Smith College, UC San Diego, UC Santa Barbara, Reed College, and University of Oregon (Honors).  

"When I stumbled upon Green River College in my high school’s education fair, I learned about the benefits of the university transfer program. I liked the nature of its affordability, accessibility, and flexibility. Turns out, Green River is more than just a stepping stone. I was exposed to classes with instructors who are knowledgeable in their respective fields, and I also joined diversity-related activities and clubs; my perspective of the world is refreshed every single day.

"My academic advisor introduced me to the American education landscape so I can prepare well towards my university choices. I also worked with two on-campus resources that help students to succeed: the FFS mentorship program and the Writing Center. My co-workers and employers are deeply passionate about their work and it’s great to give back to the community that nurtures me. Finally, I can get into my dream school and Green River has truly shown that I can “go anywhere from here”.
