Higher Education Digest, an independent higher education magazine, recently promoted Methodist University as one of 10 “must-watch”  North American colleges and universities in 2022. MU was the only university from North Carolina on this list.

“MU is honored to be featured on this well-respected list,” said Minnu Paul, director of MU’s Global Education, in a press release. “Our University is constantly working to create an experience that engages, enriches, and empowers our students’ lives. The strong leadership from MU has led to a stout educational system that supports all of our students, especially our international students. This ranking solidifies the fact that we are a globalized campus.”  

The magazine’s writers highlight some of MU’s most notable assets and achievements, including its thriving city atmosphere, MU’s ranking as the most diverse university in North Carolina, the more than 80 types of undergraduate and graduate programs, and the top 16 percent ranking nationally in The New York Times for overall economic mobility. 

The Higher Education Digest article identifies why Methodist University is known as one of the top institutions for international students. Currently home to students from more than 50 countries and six continents, MU provides a dedicated Global Education staff who can support international students’ unique social and financial needs. The article goes on to recognize the University’s Campus Engagement Office and One Stop as additional staff resources for international students. 

“Plus, non-international staff and people in the Fayetteville community are welcoming and supportive of international students,” said Paul. “They donate in kind, monetarily, they pick up students from the airport, and they provide a home away from home in various ways.”
