Hello, 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 ISC to say hi!
Hello! My name is Marie Johnston and I am one of the Assistant Directors of the ISC. I graduated with my M.A. in Student Development Administration in Higher Education at Seattle University in Spring 2016. During my graduate studies, I worked as the graduate assistant here at the ISC where I developed programs and events. Now, I am an advisor and will be working with international alumni! My undergraduate program was at Western Washington University where I got my B.A. in Cultural Anthropology and a music minor with a focus on cello. I grew up going back and forth between the U.S. and Fukuoka, Japan and consider both to be home. Come by and say hi and we can talk about pets, music, art, food, and more!
Hi! I'm Jennifer, most people call me Jenn. I’m the senior administrative assistant at the International Student Center. I have lived in various countries (US, Hong Kong, Japan) and experienced various educational environments while I was growing up. I first came to SU as an undergraduate for psychology (2007). After my studies at SU, I joined the JET programme (Japan Exchange and Teaching Programme) in Fukuoka, Japan for 5 years teaching junior high school and elementary school students. I came back to Seattle U for a Master’s degree in Educational Administration (2016). During my free time, I enjoy traveling, exploring new places, scuba diving, snowboarding, paddle boarding and watching TV/movies.
Come on by the ISC to chat with staff of relax/study in the ISC lounge. Feel free to ask me any questions and I'll try my best to assist you! :)
