MUNCIE, Ind. — Indiana colleges are seeing rising numbersof foreign students enrolling, and that's good news for thestate's economy.The number of foreign students enrolled in Indiana collegesand universities rose 8.6 percent to 18,569 in 2010,according to Open Doors 2010, an annual report published bythe Institute of International Education. That puts Indiana 10thin the nation for number of students from abroad, the reportsaid.
 in West Lafayette drew the mostforeign students, with 6,903.
followedat 4,819, IUPUI had 1,440 and the
 had 830.Ball State, which had 604 foreign students, says it wants toincrease its numbers. The Star Press reports the university isrecruiting students from
, South Korea, Turkeyand
 in hopes of having students withinternational origins comprise 5 percent of total enrollment by 2012.
Money is one reason. Foreign students contributed nearly $514 million to the state's economy lastyear, including $14.6 million in Muncie, the report found. Nationally, foreign students contributed $20billion to the economy."Dollars are part of it, but there are very strong educational reasons to have international students --diversity and learning about other cultures, for example, Islamic cultures," said Scott Cantrell, director ofinternational student services at Ball State. "Foreign students learn to understand true Americans,rather than what they see on TV in their home country. There are higher political aims here, makingsure there is a good exchange of cultural information."

Nearly 24 percent of the foreign students in Indiana came from China, while almost 18 percent werefrom India, the report found.The students come to the U.S. for reasons including educational opportunity. More than 20 percentstudy business and management.Others want to learn English for business reasons, Cantrell said."English is the everyday language of almost everywhere," he said.Students and educators say it's a misconception that all the foreign students who study in the U.S.come from wealthy families. In many cases, families combine their resources to help pay for their studyabroad."In China, which has a one-child policy, lots of family members contribute, not just the parents butgrandparents give, aunts and uncles give," Cantrell said. "They pool their money."Some foreign students are wealthy, but some are very poor."Educators say having a global student body is essential in a global economy."Anywhere in the world, you see the same brands everywhere. So people are not marketing to Muncie,
 County or Indiana. They are marketing products globally," Ball State President Jo AnnGora said. "Students need to be culturally sensitive, accepting and aware."------Information from: The Star Press,
