My name is Aliya. I am from Kazakhstan. [NON-ENGLISH SPEECH] My
name is Kem or Kennathhiti. I’m from Thailand. Hello, my name is Daniela and
I’m from Caracas, Venezuela. Hello, this is Feng Rui
Guo and I’m from China. Hello, [NON-ENGLISH SPEECH]. My name is Farrell and I’m
from Jakarta, Indonesia. [NON-ENGLISH SPEECH]. Hi, my name is Nick. I’m from Thailand. Hi, I’m Steven. I’m from Taipei, Taiwan. [NON-ENGLISH SPEECH] My name is
Yuhan [INAUDIBLE] from Beijing, China. I chose because it’s
like community college. I like the wording of the
community college, the people, their instructor and teachers,
the community around here is very friendly, for me,
especially the nature. I like nature. And Shoreline’s have like,
very good performance of each instructors. The course that I
studies and yeah, that’s how ended
up at Shoreline. My favorite thing
about campus is faculty and students are very nice here. Shoreline’s so different. There’s so many [INAUDIBLE]. It’s like a quiet countryside
is [INAUDIBLE] can. I think it’s the best
campus in Seattle for now. I really like it. I was deciding between
North Seattle and Shoreline and I decided on Shoreline
because of the campus. So instead of going
to university, Shoreline is a good
place to start. If you don’t know your major
yet, you can choose undecided and then you can
take lots of class to explore what you
are really like, in to. Shoreline Community
College is a great place to start your education,
especially if you’re young and you don’t know where to
do or what you want to do. It will open you
up, it will show you so much more in the world
that you can explore, and also, it’s a
great place just to learn and practice English. There are a couple
of reasons for that. A big reason,
definitely the cost. University does cost three times
higher than community college. So getting that three years
sort of, like, at a discounted price, it really helps out. But in terms of
admissions alone, it’s actually quite
difficult in terms of getting admitted
directly from Indonesia. Because Indonesia, just like
many other Asian countries, we focus a lot on
just pure academics, while universities in
America don’t actually want just academies,
they also want students who are involved
and really well-balanced. And, you know, going
through Shoreline Community College for the first
two years really gets me adapted to this
American educational culture. Although, I have been keeping
my grades really high, here as well as in Indonesia,
Shoreline I’ve been also able to really get
involved with communities. I’ve been able to go
to a couple of jobs and it really helps out with
making my application stronger to go to universities. [MUSIC PLAYING]
