Community Colleges Work To Support International Students
from U.S. News & World Report
As a high school student in Egypt, Omar Bishr applied to a few U.S. universities but didn't get in. So he pursued plan B: apply to a community college in the U.S. and then transfer to a four-year institution. Today, Bishr, 19, is a second-year business and economics student at Santa Monica College, a community college in California. He holds leadership positions on campus, such as water polo team captain, and is on the path to transfer — he hopes to attend the University of California — Berkeley.
