International student enrollment at Syracuse University has increased, but resources have not - Rachel Sandler, Satoshi Sugiyama, THE DAILY ORANGE

The Institute of International Education found the number of international students in U.S. is up 7.1 percent compared to last year, surpassing 1 million for the first time. At SU, international student enrollment has risen drastically over the past decade, increasing 143 percent since 2006. Now, international students make up almost one-fifth of the total student population. But as the number of international students on campus has increased, resources supporting students like Zhang have not kept pace, some on campus say. SU is taking steps, though, that may change that. The university recently launched an internationalization council that, among other things, will seek to support international students. The council met for the first time just before Thanksgiving break.
