China

Not that UDM should pursue students that are involved with Chinese gangs, but I found it interesting that Michigan State has almost 4,000 Chinese students. UDM should be targeting China in a major way, how much would it cost to run a few UDM commercials in China? I know someone posted in the endowment thread that UDM had "pulled out of china"...UDM should try to get back in there.

UDM really needs to place a recruiter in China full time. There are over 4,000 Chinese students @ MSU. Thats more than the entire UDM student body.

In fall 2004, there were 43 undergraduate students and 492 graduate students from China attending MSU, for a total of 535. This past fall, the number of Chinese undergraduate students mushroomed to 3,899 and graduates grew to 785 for a total of 4,684 — almost 10 percent of the university's 48,000 students.

UDM's website says we have 550 foreign students and 5600 total students, so we are right at the 10% figure that MSU has. I would guesstimate that taking into account only full-time students, foreign students might be at least 15% of the enrollment population. I know the Dean of Liberal Arts makes regular trips to China to recruit students and I think the Engineering college also makes a similar effort. Most foreign students or their sponsoring country pay the full tuition rate, so recruiting and retaining these individuals is very important to the financial health of the school.

I am on the Liberal Arts alumni board and we are looking to pilot a project in the coming months where alumni will help acclimate foreign students by hosting them for Thanksgiving dinner or other events.

Thanks for the info Rogo, I'm glad UDM has made inroads into China.
