Saipan Stepping Stone for Students

The Saipan Tribune yesterday reported on how the Pacific island's Northern Marianas College aims to become the school of choice for Asian students hoping to study in American colleges. The plan is to attract college students from Asia, particularly Japan, to enroll for a two-year Associate's Degree, with guaranteed transfer at the junior level to a four-year college or university on the U.S. mainland. Saipan's proximity to Asia, relatively low cost of living and tropical climate add to its appeal as a stepping stone to a US college education.
