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!

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. During my free time, I enjoy traveling, exploring new places, scuba diving, snowboarding 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! :)
