US Work and Travel Applicants Get Approval



Five college students of Southville International School and Colleges were granted J1 visa* by the US State Department to participate in the US Spring Work and Travel Program starting March 4 to June 25, 2011. They are Kathleen Lorena (AB Mass Comm) who is assigned in Center on International Education Exchange in Portland; Loriza Delos Reyes and Kyoko Takeuchi (BSBA) in Cedar Point Amusement Park in Ohio; Megan Merrielle Delim (BS IT) in Kings Dominion in Virginia; Elizabeth Uyami (BSBA) in Bargain Beachwear in South Carolina and Ira Nicdao who is assigned in JW Marriott in Indianapolis.

The Work and Travel Program is a cultural exchange program of the US State Department that allows current full-time college students of any course to enter the United States and learn about its culture while working in a private company during their summer break.  Since the program started three years ago, SISC had sent 16 students who all experienced how to live independently.

*A J1 visa is a non-immigrant visa issued by the US to exchange visitors participating in programs that promote cultural exchange.
