Why They Come: New England's Lure to the International Student
Goodman, Allan E.
Connection: The Journal of the New England Board of Higher Education, v21 n2 p15-16 Fall 2006
The Institute of International Education's annual census of academic mobility reveals that 7.5 percent of the nearly 600,000 international students attending U.S. colleges and universities in 2005 went to campuses in New England. In this article, the author explains why New England's higher education enterprise will continue to lure international students in a post 9/11, "flat" world. The lure of New England is not only that the region has so many excellent and welcoming schools, but also that most people abroad initially are convinced that the region contains the only schools to which one should aspire to attend.
