As the country becomes more global each day, Houston Community College is proving to be a player on the world’s stage.

Students from all over the map are coming to the United States to get their education and many are choosing to start at HCC. A fact not lost on The New York Times, which recently took a look at HCC’s expanding international profile.

Manny Fernandez of The Times wrote:

Few campuses illustrate this globalization better than Houston Community College, which tops the institute’s list of colleges that grant associate degrees. HCC has 5,208 international students from 200-plus countries, more foreign students than any other two-year college. And among all institutions of higher education, four- or two-year, it ranks 29th, ahead of prestigious destinations like Stanford, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, George Washington University and the University of California, Davis.
