More US Students Study in Germany

Recently released data by the Institute of International Education showed a small decrease (-0.8%) in the number of US students studying abroad, but an increase of 1% of US students studying in Germany. This is a great trend, and I hope it will continue.

Also interesting in this report was a list of small, liberal arts colleges such as Agnes Scott that send more than 70% of their students abroad:

I hope that Agnes Scott College will soon be a part of this list!
