Story Idea: Foreign Students Flocking to US schools

The numbers are finally up again. Enrollment of foreign students in US universities  jumped 7 percent between 2006-07 and 2007-08 school years.

See ABC story.

So here's the pitch...
What are the numbers like at Mason?

How have they changed?
How has the increase (if it has happened) affected how Mason operates? Looks? Feels?

And if the Mason foreign enrollment has not gone up, while the rest of the universities have, why? What were Mason's numbers like immediately post 9/11? In the years after 9/11? And compare those numbers to other colleges in the area/state/region during the same period.
