University of Illinois 2nd most popular for study abroad students

Posted:
WASHINGTON DC (WREX) -

A record number of foreign students are studying in the United States this year, and the University of Illinois is a popular destination.

The university is second only to the University of Southern California when it comes to the amount of foreign students studying on its campus. Purdue University ranked third.

In addition to record numbers of foreign students on U.S. soil, more American students are studying abroad than ever before. Despite that, they still lag behind the amount of foreign students studying abroad and American students tend to do shorter stints, according to the Institute of International Education.
