RRC throws international students welcome party

This assignment was for first year Journalism class. I wrote this article for The Projector, Red River College’s student newspaper. I could relate to this story and the students I interviewed because they’re immigrants like myself.

This quote is from the story this is the full article: RRC throws international students welcome party.

Lauren Konrad, the student integration co-ordinator at RRC, said some immigrant students can struggle to get connected to the campus community.

“The welcome party is the college’s way to ease that transition and to ensure that everyone is enjoying their time at Red River College,” said Konrad.

Gemma Elomina is glad to have survived the challenge of going back to school in a new country.

“Now it seems like a small problem,” she said. “My family motivates me to work hard. You have to work hard if you really want something. And I have friends I met here who support me.”
