Chinese student enrollment soars at Iowa schools

Iowa colleges are seeing large increases in Chinese undergraduates. I was at a dinner party Saturday night with a lady who went to school in Iowa, who was very positive about the quality of the schools there.
Interesting quote:
Pat Parker, associate director of admissions operations and policy at Iowa State, said the culture in China is to focus on memorization to pass English proficiency tests rather than learning the language. That leads to some problems once they get to Iowa State and have trouble understanding English, she said.
