Meet the students who make the university a global community

With more than 5,203 international students coming to the University of Michigan from 117 countries during the fall 2010 semester, the University represents a global community. But behind the numbers lie a student and a story. Despite the geographical and cultural distance separating their traditions and hometowns from Ann Arbor, there is a common experience and a shared determination among these students hailing from all across the globe.

The Michigan Daily compiled interviews with students from Zimbabwe, Ecuador, Pakistan, Jordan and Malaysia for a Jan. 26 feature. You can read their stories in The Daily.
