I feel that Green River is a place where students are given a safe place to study, and are given many opportunities to learn, grow and explore. For me, it all started with a dream of being a commercial pilot. Then, I moved to Green River where the academic advisors in the International Programs office helped me craft out a plan to achieve that goal while receiving a good education in the process.
Green River College Celebrates 30 Years of International Student Success. Green River’s International Program was established in 1988 when we hosted our first student from Japan. Green River is proud to have generations of successful alumni around the world.
