Student Services and Activities
Outstanding Student Services
International students at WVC receive individualized support from the time students
first inquire about studying here until they complete their program. WVC offers personalized
advising for admission, immigration, academics, university transfer, scholarships,
housing, personal and campus-community involvement. We have an international student
advisor, educational planners, and an international student coordinator who speaks
Japanese. We also have a career center and counseling services to assist students.
WVC finds a supporting family for each international student. The supporting family
welcomes the international student to their home, takes them out for dinner or spends
time doing weekend activities together. When the college has breaks, such as Thanksgiving
break and Christmas break, the supporting family invites the student to their home
to celebrate those special occasions.
Student Programs offer a wide range of events and activities!
Free tutoring services: We have a tutor specially assigned for international students.
Student Organizations: There are more than twenty clubs on campus and last year all international students
belonged to the International Club and participated in the activities.
Intercollegiate Athletics: WVC has men's and women's soccer, men's and women's basketball, men's baseball and
women's fast-pitch softball, and women's volleyball.
Intramurals: Activities include ice skating, bowling, skiing and open gym time for basketball
and racquetball. Fan bus trips to Mariners baseball games and Seattle Seahawk football
games are also offered through the intramural program.
Student Programs Entertainment: Throughout the academic year, WVC offers a variety of events that are free to WVC
students. Last year, events included programs presented by magician Norman Ng, One
