NSU Included In Wall Street Journal Article

November 12, 2013, 10:00 PM by Erich Schaffhauser

NSU Included In Wall Street Journal Article

Northern State University received some international exposure when the Wall Street Journal included a student and the NSU President in an article this week.

NSU has anywhere from 185 to 200 international students on campus in a given year. The story which included information about NSU was about the increasing number of international students studying in the U.S.

"I think it'll be very good for us and it does show our continued commitment to internationalizing our campus and doing some of the things we've done now over the last seven or eight years," NSU President James Smith said.

The article mentions NSU's efforts to recruit international students. Those efforts include campus officials visiting multiple countries throughout the world.

Tino Schmidt is from Germany and studying at NSU this year. Hyun Jung Kim is from South Korea.

"Study abroad is one of my biggest dreams since I was 13," Kim said.

"It gives me a broader view of everything, of the world," Schmidt said.

Administrators at NSU want to see the number of international students on campus increase to the 230 to 250 range. Its name in the Wall Street Journal can't hurt. In fact, the article could help in recruiting all students.

Prospective NSU students don't need to pay an application fee in the month of November. International students have responded, with NSU receiving 75 international student applications so far this month.

The Wall Street Journal used that statistic in its story, giving additional exposure to the promotion. Smith knows that wasn’t the intent of the journalist but says he’ll take it.

"We have people all around the world reading that now saying ‘my son or daughter ought to look at this it's free application month,’" Smith said.

NSU currently has international students representing 24 different countries.
