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.
