Pictured above are students at Washington State College in Pullman, Washington.

College students from the University of Washington in Seattle, who were able to transfer to a school inland, also braved the unknown and traveled to their new schools, with no family to support them. Although some Inland Northwest universities accepted Nisei transfer students easily, there were also problems with quota systems and communities suspicious of Japanese people. One organization, the National Japanese American Student Relocation Council, devoted itself to finding colleges and universities for Nisei to attend.
