Hana Portrait

Name: Hana Hiratai
Country: Japan
Major:  Performing Arts

Hana is one of our excellent NIC students. She was recommended to Citrus College by the advisors at NIC for our strong Performing Arts Program.

As an actress, she was immediately drawn to Citrus College due to our reputation in the arts. Hana is taking on the challenges of her chosen field as an actress. “The most impactful experience is acting class. I learned a lot about life and acting. There are tough situations and language barriers… I think of it as a test and do my best.”

After Citrus, she will transfer to a four-year school to complete her bachelor’s degree. When asked for advice to incoming students, Hana said, “Learning in a new environment is never easy, but do your best and become stronger.”

ISC News

Summer is an exciting time in the ISC. We have new incoming students for the Summer session, new ISC Student Assistants at the front desk, upcoming summer events, and so much more.

This month, we introduced new student assistants to the rotation at our front desk. We are very happy to have them and they are doing a great job getting acquainted with the duties and assisting ISC students in a friendly and welcoming manner. Additionally, do not miss out on our pool party this month and the annual ISC Beach Party in late August. It’s going to be a great Summer at the ISC. 

Summer Fun atthe
ISC Pool Party!

This month the ISC is hosting a Pool Party at the Citrus College Aquatics Center. 

Stop by Tuesday, July 11 at 1pm, for an afternoon swim and taco lunch. 

Join us and sunbathe by the pool, enjoy the cool water under the July sun, soak in the hot tub if that’s your preference, or just enjoy a taco and hang out with friends under the canopy. All are welcome at this ISC Summer Tradition. See you poolside this month!
