Inspired by the recent news about the international students in the bus crash on the Aurora Bridge, KUOW published a great story by Joshua McNichols about what Shoreline Community College does to make its international students feel at home.

"Shoreline student Minh Vo was really scared her first quarter at Shoreline." 
“I was really scared, I don’t want to do anything, I just want to sit in my room and do my homework, go to school and go back to home,” she said.
McNichols reports:
Colleges like Shoreline work hard to reach students like this. They offer field trips to see the sites around Seattle. 
Older students, like Winston Lee from Hong Kong, teach them how to navigate this culture. Even things like negotiating over a used-car price. 

"Then there are the extracurricular classes, like a ukulele class at Shoreline. Most of the students are from foreign countries."
