Our ESOL students represent over 40 countries from different parts of the world, including Mexico, Colombia, China, Germany, Denmark, Venezuela, Brazil, Korea, Pakistan and Japan. Despite their different cultural and language backgrounds, they are all here in the program to improve their English and achieve their personal and professional goals. Some of our students are immigrants who have made the United States their home; others are international students who are in the United States to pursue an academic degree. The program also caters to professionals and their families who are here in the United States temporarily for work. More information >>
ESOL sponsors a variety of intercultural activities for its students and the college to promote diversity and multicultural understanding, and to create a community for its students.
This is the students' most popular event. Our ESOL students, their families, and ESOL faculty come together twice a semester to share the foods and music native to their countries. More information >>
At the end of each fall and spring semester, we celebrate and acknowledge our students' achievements at this event. The ceremony includes awarding certificates and prizes to our outstanding students, who are selected from each class by their classmates, entertainment, door prizes, guest speaker, student speaker, and food.
