EDMOND - When Joshua Lim was a freshman at the University of Central Oklahoma three years ago, he had to adapt to living in a new country while learning to navigate college life.
Lim is hardly alone. A study released this week shows that the number of international college students is growing in Oklahoma and nationwide.
According to the study, the 2012 Open Doors Report on International Educational Exchange, Oklahoma is welcoming an increasing number of students like Lim. During the 2011-12 academic year, 8,722 international students enrolled in Oklahoma colleges and universities. The study was conducted by the nonprofit Institute for International Education.
Oklahoma's figure represents an increase of 1.1 percent over last year's total of 8,626, according to the report. The state ranks 25th in the nation in terms of the number of international students it enrolls.
