International student increase
(WOUB) - Since the post 9-11 drop in the number of international students at Ohio University, this fall is the first time that the number has increased drastically.

Associate Provost for International Affairs Josep Rota says the increase is due to excellent recruiting by O.U. officials.

Rota says so far this fall, 259 international students are enrolled.

And he says of those, the 82 undergrads enrolled is a 300% increase from last year.

He is expecting these numbers to increase slightly still because of late student enrollment.
