Glenville, WV – Glenville State College Admissions Counselor Rebecca Radcliff is spreading the word about GSC and the Mountain State around the world in Asia. She traveled to China in October thanks to a trip planned by employees of the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission. The goal of the travels was to raise awareness of studying in West Virginia.
Radcliff, along with a representative from all public West Virginia colleges and universities and one private college, spent ten days in China. While there, they attended the China Education Expo and gave presentations at high schools.
“There were thousands of schools from around the world on display at the expo. It made me very excited for the possibility of Glenville State College forging a partnership with Chinese students,” said Radcliff.
Currently, GSC has students from Canada, England, Scotland, and Serbia. In the past, GSC students have also come from Bulgaria, Finland, Iran, Ireland, Japan, Nigeria, and South Africa.
“Going to China will help the student body of GSC. This will create an even more diverse community that we will all gain great experience from. One of the goals of the GSC Admissions Department is to make the campus community the most global community it can be,” said GSC Vice President for Enrollment Management Duane Chapman.
Along with the recruiting efforts, the group also got to experience China and its many sight-seeing opportunities.“This trip was amazing. I loved seeing the Great Wall of China and riding on a bullet train. I will never forget it,” said Radcliff.
Radcliff is a native of Fort Seybert in Pendleton County. She graduated from GSC in 2007 with a bachelor of science degree in behavioral science with a concentration in criminal justice. Radcliff has been a GSC Admissions Counselor for over two years. She resides in Weston, West Virginia (Lewis County) with her husband, Troy.
