Chau (Cindy) Nguyen, Vietnam
Why I chose Shoreline: I chose Shoreline because it not only provides a High School Completion program but also has a 2+2 transfer program, which is a great pathway for me to obtain a bachelor’s degree with a more affordable tuition cost compared to a traditional 4-year undergraduate program. Besides that, as I researched, Shoreline is well known for sending a high percentage of their students to many prestigious universities, including UCLA, NYU, and UW Seattle. Therefore, I believe that with all the support and guidance from the Academic Advisors during my time studying at Shoreline, I can easily transfer to my dream university.

One tip to share with new students: Don't be shy about asking for help or starting a conversation. Make friends with your classmates and outside of your classrooms. When you start at Shoreline, be sure to follow Shoreline's social media pages so you won't miss out great opportunities to interact with other students during a variety of events, workshops, and school trips throughout the year.
What I do when I'm free: When I have time, I usually take the bus or light rail to discover new places in the city or find good places to eat with my friends.
