If you’re an international student in the U.S., you’re in good company as the total number of people who came overseas to pursue their education rose 10 percent in the past year. According to the recently released 2015 Open Doors Report data from the Institute of International Education (IIE), the following 10 schools have the largest populations of international students:

1. New York University: 13,178
2. University of Southern California: 12,334
3. Columbia University: 11,510
4. Arizona State University: 11,330
5. University of Illinois – Urbana-Champaign: 11,223
6. Northeastern University: 10,559
7. Purdue University – West Lafayette: 10,230
8. University of California – Los Angeles: 10,209
9. Michigan State University: 8,146
10. University of Washington: 8,035

New York University (NYU) and University of Southern California (USC) held their respective spots as No. 1 and No. 2, respectively, on the list, as did Michigan State University and the University of Washington at No. 9 and No. 10.

Columbia University, however, saw a nearly 10 percent rise in its number of international students and moved up to No. 3. Arizona State University also experienced a tremendous rise in this number, reaching a nearly 31 percent increase.

While NYU remained No. 1 on the list, it still saw a pretty large increase in its number of international students at 18 percent, as did USC, at almost 13 percent.

These increases also come amid a rise in the total number of international students in the United States, which increased 10 percent to 974,926 from 886,052, marking the largest increase in total international students since 1979.
