percentage of internationals at WPI

<p>hey there,</p>

<p>Im hoping that a current student can answer my questions..
how many internationals do you see at WPI...coz it seems like A LOT seem to be most of them end up coming...
Also, do the internationals stick together? or get along with the local crowd as well..</p>

<p>Hopefully a current or former student will give their perspective. In the mean time, I will give you my perspective as the parent of a freshman. According to WPI’s website, about 10% of students are international. I think whether the international students stick together or integrate with local students really varies with the student and how involved s/he chooses to get with campus activities. My daughter has several friends from other countries who she has met through the activities that she is involved in. </p>

<p>WPI has always attracted international students. My husband went to WPI for both undergraduate and graduate school and has / had many international friends from back then.</p>

<p>You can always get a fair amount of info from every college’s “Common Data Set”. Google the college’s name and “common data set” to find it.</p>

<p>From WPI (the most current CDS is 2012); The number of admitted “Non-resident aliens” first year students is 140 out of a total of 1005 first year students. It was 427 out of 3746 for the whole student body.</p>

<p>thanks a lot for the responses :)</p>

<p>In my post above; “admitted” should have been “enrolled”</p>
