    Desk Assistant
    Hey there! My name is Melia Lawrence and I hail from the hot and humid land of Indonesia, Jakarta. Although that is my nationality, I spent most of my life in Singapore, so I consider both countries my home country. I am majoring in Strategic Communications in Seattle University and am absolutely loving my major and everything about it. My time in Seattle University so far has been enriching, to say the least. The amount of diversity in this school and chances for you to expand your understanding here is beyond anything I could hope or imagine. I am most interested in getting to know people from different walks of life, I also enjoy getting coffee and having good conversations! In my free time, I like to binge watch Disney movies with my Pug, Hiro, and one of my favorite things to do is reading indoors in the cold Seattle weather. We’re all about fostering community here in the ISC, so if you ever feel like being a part of it, hop on in and participate in one of our many activities (we don’t bite, promise)! Hope to meet you guys in real life and feel free to say hi to me if you see me around campus!

    My name is Takumu Tamazawa. I am an international student from Japan and study accountancy and computer science. I have been in the states for two years and transferred from Seattle Central College in the Spring 2015. I am currently a desk assistance and an orientation leader at ISC.

I like to assist students who have decided to embark academic career at Seattle University; I am always at International Student Center, so feel free to stop by and say hi! Looking forward to meeting you.

    Programming Assistant
    Hello it’s Ning here! I'm an international transfer student from China, majoring in nursing study. My current life goal is to work and get more experience around the world after I become an RN. In the future, I hope to go for my Master's of Science in Nursing (in Europe maybe?). I have lived in China for 17 years, in Ohio for 1 year, and in Seattle for almost 3 years now (I miss my sunshine and vitamin D)! I like listening and dancing to pop music (mainstream), going to concerts (mainstream), watching movies (sci-fi, horror, thriller, comedy, etc.), traveling (my dream is to visit Africa), hiking, swimming, paddle boarding, snorkeling (in Hawaii!), cooking, eating (I'm a major foodie). I like helping people and I feel rewarded if I can make someone's day a little bit better. Come to ISC and have a chat or if you have any questions (or if you need some injections haha), please don't hesitate to contact me. :)

    Programming Assistant

    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!

     Warm greetings to my lovely international students!

     My name is Anh Phan, and I am your desk assistant at the ISC. I am from Vietnam, a country that is known for humidity and Pho. I am a Pre-Med student, majoring in Accounting and minoring in Biology. My coursework is fairly heavy, but I think I have a good strategy to handle the pressure. If you ever feel like you need someone to talk to about classes and time management, I definitely have some insights for you.

    Prior to Seattle University, I attended Edmonds Community College, which is located approximately 15 miles up North. I love Edmonds CC but Seattle University really enhances my experience with a wide array of opportunities for personal growth. Everything here is always a challenge by choice, but if you decide to put yourself out there, you will learn a lot from social justice to how to enjoy a good Christmas.

    Working at the ISC has allowed me to meet students from around the world. Many of the international students come from countries that I wish to visit one day or have already visited, so it is very interesting to hear about the real experience. Even though I read a lot about different countries and cultures, nothing can trump a good story from a native.  

    ISC is all about you and your success. Stop by and say hello :) !
