For the eighth consecutive year, USC enrolled the highest number of foreign students of any U.S. university last year, a new report shows. USC, which recruits strongly in Asia, had 7,482 international students in the 2008-09 school year, according to the study by the Institute of International Education with support from the State Department. In all, USC enrolls about 34,000 undergraduate and graduate students. New York University, with 6,761, had the second-largest international contingent and Columbia University, with 6,685, ranked third.

For the last decade, USC has enrolled the largest number of international students of any college in the country: 8,615 last year. The Los Angeles university worked hard to achieve that - recruiting students from China, India and South Korea, among 100 countries in all, and providing services for the foreign students once they get here. Now campus officials are faced with the slayings this week of two graduate engineering students from China in a shooting about a mile off campus.
OPINION
August 27, 2003 | Catharine Stimpson, Catharine Stimpson is dean of the Graduate School of Arts and Science at New York University.
The Sept. 11 attacks rightly marshaled America against terrorism. Unfortunately, however, the government's zeal has created one of the most serious conflicts between security and freedom in our nation's history -- and its effects will be evident on college campuses, among other places, this fall. As a New York University educator, I am unusually anxious about the start of this academic year.

Nearly three years ago, some skeptics doubted Community College Chancellor Philip Westin when he plunked down $300,000 to start an experimental program increasing the number of international students. But the decision to transfer Oxnard College President Elise Schneider to a new job as the program's provost and pay her more than $100,000 annually to travel around the globe has proved a sound investment for the Ventura County Community College District. Last year, the program brought in $1.

Here at the L.A. Times, we put the "test" in Test Kitchen. And sometimes we feel a little more like mad scientists than trained chefs. Not only do we test (and routinely retest) every recipe that runs in the paper but we also then re-create and style those recipes for food shoots to appear both online and in print, coordinate and shoot step-by-step demonstrations and videos of various cooking techniques, and prepare for recipe demonstrations that air on KTLA-TV 's afternoon news.

From Boston to China and across the Internet, University of California campuses this year are taking unprecedented and potentially controversial steps to recruit out-of-state and international students for the extra revenue and geographic diversity they bring to the cash-strapped system. Most of the nine UC campuses that enroll undergraduates report sending admissions staffers more often this year than in previous years to visit high schools, college admissions fairs and other events outside the state.

As a young student in Singapore, Sharon Lai decided she'd like to attend college in the United States. Although she didn't have a specific school in mind, she had an idea of where to look.
