            SCC makes international students feel included.

            When I decided that I was coming to the US, shamefully I was lectured every day by family and friends to not go out, not make any friends or interact with the public for the fear of being victimized because I'm foreign. But the people, city, my classmates, the public, everything and everybody was as peaceful and friendly as they could ever be!

            I lived in Seattle for 2 years, and I decided to move to a smaller city. When I told my friend I'm moving to Spokane, he said "what?! Spokane is in middle of nowhere!" I'm here now and I love it and their people.
