COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - More international students are going to college in Ohio.

A new report finds that international students studying at Ohio colleges increased 7.5 percent - to more than 28,000 - for the 2012-13 school year.

The report released Monday by the Institute of International Education puts Ohio at No. 8 nationally.

The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/18lpSbg ) reports that the leading country of origin for foreign students in Ohio was China, which provided 41 percent of all international students. India and Saudi Arabia were next.

Ohio State University in Columbus ranked 15th nationally for attracting international students.

The number of Ohio college students who studied abroad remained roughly the same.
