International Students at East Tennessee State University
International students have enrolled at East Tennessee State University since at least the 1940s, arriving from all over the world in search of a top-tier education from an American university. This exhibit focuses on the years between 1946 and 1960 in order to evaluate connections between the Cold War and the countries of origin for those international students who enrolled at East Tennessee State University (known at the time as East Tennessee State College). It examines ETSC's goals in admitting international students and the role that federal and state governments played in this process.
