August 7, 2015

Relay for Life

The Upper Missouri Relay for Life will be held on the WSC campus on July 31st. Williston’s State Educating for a Cause team will be participating in this event. The team is comprised of both Staff and Faculty Members. The event is being held on campus for the first time this year.

Konichiwa

Accompanied by four chaperons, 11 WSC students traveled to Japan on May 25 for an 18-day immersion program. The program was made possible through WSC’s partnership with its sister school, Kokusai Junior College (KJC). WSC students taught English while immersed in Japanese culture.

The partnership was created in 2010 to give both international and WSC students a unique cultural experience. Some KJC students will visit WSC from September 2-13 and will stay with host families, while two KJC students will be enrolled for the Fall 2015 semester.
