PCC Global Director Jessica Jaimes passes out notecards at the Pitt Community College Peace Pole event Tuesday as part of International Education Week. Those who took part in the event representing world peace recited the message inscribed on the pole - "May Peace Prevail on Earth" - in their native languages. The gathering, which also included a moment of silence for the victims of the recent typhoon that struck the Philippines, was hosted by PCC Global and the college's English as a Second Language program in collaboration with the PCC Multicultural Activities Committee.

Although international students studying on North Carolina campuses increased 9 percent last academic year, neither East Carolina University nor Pitt Community College followed that trend, numbers showed.

Figures from the Institute of International Education on Monday showed international student enrollment at more than 15,000 across the state.


At ECU, foreign students with all visa types fell from 299 in fall 2012 to 249 in 2013. Those with F1 visas, reserved only for students, fell from 67 to 50 for undergraduates and 90 to 71 for graduates.
