University of Wisconsin-Superior administrators say this year's
enrollment increase can be attributed, in part, to a record influx
of international students.
enrollment at the Superior campus is up 13 percent this year.
University spokesman Daniel Fanning tells WDIO-TV (http://bit.ly/1FakRmy
) the enrollment increase brings a "positive vibe" to
the campus. State budget cuts and uncertainty have been difficult
for many UW campuses.
Fanning says the
outlook is better with significant enrollment increases. The
number of international students is up 25 percent, making this
year's class the largest and most diverse.
Ghalehmalek moved from Cyprus to Superior to go to school. He says
the small community and beautiful campus is what drew him to
Superior. Ghalehmalek is a resident adviser who was helping
students move into the dorms Sunday.
