This is the second consecutive year as well as the ninth time in 10 years that the university has been ranked one of the nation’s top three universities for international studies, according to a press release.

A total of 392 students from Chico studied abroad during the 2015-2016 academic year.

“It means a lot to our program and staff that we are once again nationally ranked in a category that is representative of our mission for true immersion and individual growth,” said Jennifer Gruber, program’s coordinator in the press release.
