Freshman student-athletes currently on rosters come to Foggy Bottom from 15 different countries and six different continents. Out of the 110 student-athletes in the Class of 2021, 16 of them represent nations other than the U.S. and the remaining 94 freshmen come from 25 different U.S. states.
Over the past five years, the percentage of incoming freshman that come from abroad has increased each year. Since fall of 2013, the proportion of international athletes in the incoming class has grown about 7 percent.
Men’s soccer has brought in 10 international students over the past five years, the most of any team during that time. Men’s soccer and men’s squash are the only teams that have brought in at least one international student every year over that stretch.
Three teams – men’s water polo and both men’s and women’s tennis – have entire incoming classes made up of solely international players.
