Highline College is great environment for everyone
to study and improve their English skills in reading,
writing and speaking. There are also many activities
such as Conversation Pal, GlobalFest, and Volunteer Bank for

Highline offers not only strong academic programs, but also
great leadership opportunities that give me the chance to
plan social and cultural events for other students and
improve my communication skills. Most importantly,
Highline has trained me to be a confident leader who can

"Highline has the opportunity for international students to
apply for scholarships. I got the AA Transfer and
Academic Scholarships. Both helped my financial
situation a lot, and supported my dream to finish my
International Business Certificate."
||Keita Era, Japan
Highline College is the ideal place for me to
prepare for my future at a 4-year university. The
availability of the short-term housing option, which is located 5 minutes
from campus, also helps me to hang out with friends and
focus on studying. I feel comfortable here.

"I like Highline College for its diversity and its strong commitment
toward its international student population."
||Jon Allman, United States|
I enjoy hanging out with international students because I
can learn a lot about other people's cultures. There
is a lot to learn about people that you can only get through
actual interaction, things you don't get from a textbook.
But of course I'm not friends with people just for learning;
it's about having a good time, too! Whether it's
playing soccer or Frisbee, at a birthday party or seeing
fireworks on the 4th of July, we always have a blast.

"Recently I moved into
short-term housing. I just love it! There are different students from different countries with lots of opportunities to meet, interact and make new friends. I feel like we have a special aura
where I live. We are all from different parts of the world, but each of us strives to achieve the same goal - get knowledge for the future. It really ties us together!"
Ayumi Sakamoto, Japan
"I was in
the Volunteer Bank which is one of the programs in ISP. I
was able to have the opportunity to go to a public high
school and teach Japanese in a classroom. It was really
