Last Friday, a group of colleges that are part of Colleges That Change Lives (http://ctcl.org/) visited the ISAK campus to meet with our students. CTCL is a group of liberal arts colleges in the United States committed to the philosophy that every student should seek a college that develops a lifelong love of learning and provides the foundation for a successful and fulfilling life beyond college. They are also known for providing a welcoming environment to international students.
This was an incredible opportunity to hear from highly regarded liberal arts schools that align very well with the ISAK mission. Representatives from Juanita College, St. Mary’s College of California, Evergreen State College, and University of Puget Sound participated in the visit. The afternoon included a lively, interactive and informative presentation on CTCL and the college search process, followed by a mini college fair at which students got the chance to talk to representatives about their particular schools.
We appreciate these colleges visiting ISAK, and all the valuable information they shared with our community. The Colleges That Change Lives book by Loren Pope (the former New York Times education editor and journalist who started this movement) can be found in our school library.
