Joshua Kendall

Title: Student Services Advisor
International Accelerator Program


I graduated from Appalachian State University with a B.A. in History and a minor in Mandarin Chinese. I am currently pursuing my M.S. in Finance and Economics. Cooking is my passion and I see it as a way to blend all my travel experiences over the years. I am passionate about exploring different cultures and I am excited to meet all my new students.

International Experience 

After graduating, I moved to Dubai, UAE where I lived for 6 months to obtain my CELTA. After that, I moved to Taiyuan, China where I worked as an ESL teacher for over 5 years. I have traveled to countless countries around Europe, but I would love the opportunity to explore more of Asia and South America.

Columbia Favorites 

Being an avid outdoorsman, I am really excited to visit the Lake Murray area to hike, camp, fish, and kayak. I also love southern BBQ so you’re likely to find me trying various barbecue restaurants here in Columbia.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
