I love that the program provides a theoretical basis for everything you learn on the job. It’s great to understand the theory behind a subject so you know why you’re doing what you’re doing. It all helps in learning how to be a good manager.

How South helped:South gave me the opportunity to expand my education and my hotel experience outside my country. During my time at South Seattle Community College I was an active student leader, serving on the S & A Fee Committee and International Club.


Liliane Kamikazi

Business Major from Rwanda

South helped me, first to improve my English because when I came to South I didn’t speak English well. I learned how to get involved in the community. During my time at South I won the 2010 President’s Award. Also, worked as an Ambassador in the United Student Association for International Programs. I had an opportunity to do volunteer activities with other students and it was a rewarding experience.
