International Students Have Significant Economic Impact

The number of international students attending United States colleges and universities has increased by 3% this year, according to the Open Doors Kit by the Institute of International Education. Economically, international students attending various Penn State campuses contribute millions of dollars annually.

International students at University Park alone will contribute approximately $121.7 million after the 2009-2010 academic year based on research by NAFSA. The economic impact is determined by summing room and board, tuition fees, and other daily expenses.

Other PSU campuses with high numbers of international students are Penn State Harrisburg, Penn State Eerie, and Penn State College of Medicine in Hershey.

The University Department of Global Programs expects 250 international students to be a part of this December’s graduation ceremonies.

Stoop Kid’s Afraid to Leave the Stoop

Editor and graduating senior Caity Rogowski writes about living the questions, facing fears, sharing burdens, and accepting reality.

“If you’ve ever seen the movie You’ve Got Mail, you’ll understand me when I say I have the “Kathleen Kelly Syndrome.” I often have trouble saying exactly what I mean. Instead, I find it easier to outsource by using quotes or songs to convey my message. That’s why you’ll find a few of my favorites scattered throughout this post: my senior column.”
