The International Student Experience

Wall of MoneyWhen students enter the office of Todd Sasaki, student advisor and director of International Programs at Pitzer, they are often struck by the vast amount of paper money taped to one of his walls. The impressive display of currency was long ago dubbed “The Wall of Money”!


“The Wall of Money is something that started with an international student from Russia,” remembers Sasaki, laughing “When I put the 10 ruble bill he gave me on the wall, people started putting currency from their countries up on the wall. I started asking for contributions, and even more notes came in!”
