Universities throughout the U.S. are trying to increase their international student population, and WKU is no different. For years at WKU, Indian and Chinese students made up the largest international student groups, but that has since changed. There are now more students from Saudi Arabia on WKU’s campus than from any other country outside the U.S.
About 140 new international students are expected to arrive at WKU by August 21st. University officials say a number of activities have been planned to help those students undergo an effective orientation plan, to help them adjust to campus life in the U.S.
