my name is Jennifer Wascher and I am one of the Assistant Directors at
the ISC. I help international students to maintain
their student visa status and to be successful at Seattle University.
I’m a graduate of SU’s Student Development Administration Program, and
I’ve also worked as an Activities Coordinator and Part-Time Advisor at
the ISC – Go Redhawks! Before returning to SU,
I supported international students with educational planning and
immigration advising at Highline Community College. My interest in
international education came from teaching high school English in
Hiroshima-ken, Japan, and study and work in London. I enjoy
learning about other cultures, watching movies and basketball, and the
outdoors and shopping of Seattle. Feel free to drop by the International
Student Center to say hi!
Xin chao, hello, bonjour!
My name is Nguyen Tran. I’m an international student from Sai Gon (or Ho Chi Minh City), Vietnam. Yes, it is the biggest city of the nation, but no, it’s not the capital city. Currently, I am a freshman majoring in Bio-Chemistry and hopefully, I will get into a medical school with this degree. I know three languages: Vietnamese, English, and a bit of French. I said “a bit” because I need much practice on my speaking skills.
I love watching movies, any genre is okay for me except horror. I can’t stand blood, knives and needles. I know it’s ironic since I’m going to a medical school, but we’ll see how it goes. Books are also a big part of my life. Like movies, I don’t like bloody novels, but my favorite books are pretty bloody. They are “The Book Thief”, “The Hunger Games”, and… “Horton Hears a Who”. Lastly, I love listening to instrumental music and collecting quotes. My favorite quote is “at school, the lesson comes first then the test. In life, the test comes first then the lesson.”
I will be around campus, so feel free to say hello if you see me.
Namaste, My name
is Dinesh Kumar. I'm from India and I'm a current MBA student at SU. Previously
I worked as a Systems Engineer at Infosys Technologies Ltd. I like to travel, watch movies especially
action, adventure and Sci-fi. I love
programming and gaming. Studying at SU is very enriching, I would say that I
learn a lot from everyone and I love to help everyone. Stop by anytime at our ISC lounge to relax, have
food and to chat with the staff.
My name is Veronica and I’m a junior
Humanities for Leadership major. My roots are in the Bay Area and the west
coast of Sweden, where I have family—and Seattle definitely has a hold on my
heart too! I love poetry, conversations and adventures, making collaborative
art, music, listening to stories, being surrounded by lovely people, and
enjoying food. I’m involved at the Center for Service and Community Engagement,
and I love connecting with people about identity, social justice, and community
organizing. I was an Orientation Leader at the 2014 Fall New Beginnings Program,
where I enjoyed meeting both students and staff- and I am very grateful and excited
to continue building with this community. Looking forward to meeting you!
