LOS ANGELES (AP) – A new report shows the University of Southern California leads the nation in the number of foreign students.

The annual Open Doors report released Monday says the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is second and New York University third.

USC has hosted the highest number of international students for 11 consecutive years.
