International students make up 23 percent of the enrollment in Ohio graduate programs, but new data shows, nationally, that number took a hit last year and at Ohio schools.

A report from the National Science Foundation, a federally run research agency, shows that after nearly a decade of consistent growth, the number of international undergraduate students with the visas declined by 2.2 percent in 2017, while graduate student enrollment dropped by 5 1/2 percent.

The numbers are based on participation in the federal government’s F-1 visa program.

The University of Akron has announced a new initiative called “Five-Star Fridays.”

The program moves most classes to Monday-through-Thursday. Fridays will be open for students to seek opportunities for career development. Students can use Fridays to participate in internships, attend career fairs or get academic support.

University President Matt Wilson says the move will save students from making tough decisions.
