Assistant Director, International Student Center PDSO
Phone: 206.296.6260
Hi, my name is Dale Watanabe and I am one of the two Assistant Directors at the ISC. I work closely with Jennifer Wascher so we can keep up to date on all of our fantastic international students. A little about me: I taught English as a Second Language for seven years (3 years in Hyogo-ken, Japan and 4 years at Edmonds Community College) and have worked at Seattle University since winter quarter of 2001. I grew up on Seattle's Beacon Hill (famous for the pink building) and live in the house I grew up in. As some of you may know, my office is always open so please drop by and say hello!

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!
