Thousands of people from around the world reside in Washtenaw County. Their reasons for coming to the Great Lakes State are as diverse as the cultures they represent. Take these three interesting women. One came to the area to work. Another came because she lost her job. The third sought medical help. All three chose WCC to further their education.
