More than one hundred twenty international students represent thirty nations in the 2017 spring semester. These students come to C-N from countries in Africa, North America, South America, Asia, and Europe. Over the years Carson-Newman has conferred degrees on students from all over the world who have returned to their homelands to teach, establish homes, enter various professions, establish businesses, pastor churches, and become an integral part of their communities.
