TTU Sees Influx Of International Students

Tennessee Tech says it is having an influx of international students because of a new English language center that opened in July. The university now has 576 international students in the program, and school officials expect 1,000 by 2015. Before the center opened, Tech often referred international students who needed English instruction to Middle Tennessee State or the University of Tennessee.  Tech officials say international students are attracted to the school because of its location in a safe, small town and because of its selection of majors especially in business, engineering and science.
