According to the latest Open Doors data report, a total of 886,052 international students studied in the U.S. in 2013-2014. The number of international students studying in the U.S. grew by 8 percent over the last year and is now at a record high.

So where are all the international students studying?

As you can see from this map and table, many of them are in New York and California. That’s not surprising, considering those are two of the country’s four most populous states. New York University, Columbia University (located in New York City), the University of California and the University of Southern California host a total of 42,161 international students. The Midwest also has some very popular schools in the University of Illinois, Purdue University (Indiana) and Michigan State University.
