International Students Abandon UMKC

Harsh times for the city college after an alleged illegal alien rape and nearby suspected hate crime killing has apparently scared long distance kangaroos from the campus . . .This is critical given hefty profits for the school paid from higher fees required of these students. Checkit:

Amid new anxiety, fewer than half as many foreign students apply to UMKC

Following a campaign season often perceived abroad as bordering on xenophobic, amid Trump administration travel bans and in the wake of racially charged violence against immigrants, the allure of American college campuses appears to be fading. In Kansas City, Lawrence, Manhattan and Columbia - as at schools across the country - fresh anxieties are driving down college applications from overseas.

Good we do not need 'em. They slow classes down and ruin the grading curve undermining the education of Americans.

There have to be a variety of factors at work.

Those that say "we don't need them" don't understand anything about how schools pay their bills?

Which would you rather have? Higher taxes or more students? the choice is obvious to those who are educated.

11:46, go easy on the goofish, funny guy @10:47. I think he's danged ol' Boomhauer's bro playing on TKC now, between beers in the back alley with Hank, Dale, Bill, and Boomhauer. His jumbled jargon's no more rude and crude than some crap rap lyrics.

Hopefully the entire country will follow suit and none of them will want to come here either.

i've wondered if these colleges taking in foreign students as a profit-making endeavor aren't exploiting their tax -favored status.

The reduction of Arab students is due to lower prices for oil.
Saudi students are primarily funded by their government. Saudi princes bankroll students to take English at UMKC (about $30,000 tuition) for 1-2 years and then major in engineering or other high-skill endeavors.
Their princes also fund their living expenses -- about $2,000 a month. Now that oil prices are down,the princes have reduced their budgets for these male-only students.
