Green River College
Would you like to know more about student life at Green River Community College in Auburn, United States? Read about the experiences of international students that studied at this college. Sander and Oliver from The Netherlands will tell you all about their study abroad experience in the United States.
Sander did a study abroad semester at Green River Community College (GRCC) and chose four subjects: Philosophy, Radio Production, Psychology, Political Science. After completing his studies at GRCC, he was admitted to the Bachelor of International Business at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU), to which only a limited number of places are available. However, Sander received a guaranteed admission agreement because of his studies abroad.
I have learned a lot during the 3 months at Green River Community College. GRCC has a small-scale campus and every effort is made to give international students the best time of their lives. A big difference with the Dutch education system is the amount of support staff at this college. They will help you with every question you have.
If you are willing to arrange things yourself and look forward to a challenge, I would advise you to go and live at the Campus Corner Apartments. This is a small (international) student district, a 2-minute walk from the campus. You will share an apartment with three other (inter)national students. It’s good to be open-minded, as you will for sure meet some cultural differences. You can make use of several services including a pickup service which make things easier at the start.
