Curacao Student Experience at WSC
Wayne State College has a strong relationship with the people of Curacao, an island located off the coast of South America. Each year, several international students from Curacao enroll at WSC. They recognize Wayne State as a high-quality academic institution that’s also very affordable. The climate in Nebraska may be different than Curacao’s, but students have come to call Wayne home because of the welcoming environment and small community feel.

"When I first came here, I was pleasantly surprised that Wayne is a small and friendly community. It is a great place to study, and it's easy to fit in through the variety of clubs and groups on campus. I am currently in the rugby and soccer clubs.

"I transferred to Wayne State from Western Iowa Tech Community College. The process to transfer was so much easier than I thought it would be. All the credits and classes I took over at WITCC were transferred, which amazed me. Also, WSC offered me in-state tuition because of my good GPA. As an international student, that is a really rare offer. I have met nice people and made new friends. The staff and professors are welcoming and I feel that they care for students' success."
