We’re doing some research at the moment on college student demographics in Missouri, and developed some fun statistics on the foreign student population.

You might be able to guess the two largest populations of foreign students, particularly if you went to an engineering college – Chinese, then Indian.  But what countries occupy Spots 3 through 10 on the list?  Some of them may surprise you.

  1. Chinese
  2. Asian Indian
  3. Korean
  4. Japanese
  5. African (no detail)
  6. Sudanese
  7. Russian
  8. Colombian
  9. Taiwanese
  10. Serbian

Serbian?  Sudanese?  We’re guessing you can win some friendly wagers with this information.  And we’re wondering if the Colombian students disproportionately attend the University of Missouri-Columbia in a lucky marketing coincidence.
