International Activities

At Lake Washington Institute of Technology, we care about our international students. To help students succeed academically and better adjust to the new culture in the United States, we offer the following to students:

  • International Learning Center: Our center focuses on helping students succeed in their English classes at LWTech. Our Intensive English Program faculty work one on one with students in all levels of English, helping students with their English assignments. The center is open Monday through Thursday, from 2:30pm-4:00pm. For more information, please contact the Global Programs & Partnerships department.
  • International Mentor Program: New to LWTech this year, the International Mentor Program provides assistance and support to new international students at LWTech. After the application and interview processes, current LWTech students (mentors) are paired with new international students (mentees). Through regular communication and monthly activities, mentors will provide guidance and encouragement to their mentees, helping mentees settle and adjust to life in the United States and at LWTech. FOr more information, please contact the Global Programs & Partnerships department. 
  • Talk Time!: New to LWTech this year, Talk Time! is a program designed to give international students an opportunity to practice their English conversational skills with other English speaking students and college staff. Talk Time! is a weekly event and takes place in the International Student Lounge.
  • International Student Monthly Celebration: Starting this year, the GPP will hold a monthly celebration for the international students at LWTech, recognizing their dedication to pursuing their educational goals at LWTech.
  • Quarterly activities and events: Each quarter, the Global Programs & Partnerships department hosts several events and activities to celebrate international education on campus and help welcome students to the LWTech campus.

 There are also many opportunities for students to get involved in campus activities. Leadership skills can be gained through participation in Student Government. There are many clubs you can join including our International Club.
