Farleigh Dickensen Goes to Canada

The move north, I guess, is something of a novelty. According to this story, FDU from my old stomping ground in Madison, NJ is opeing a campus in Vancouver, BC to enroll Asian students. It's funny, having been working on recruiting for a US-based institution in Vancouver, BC for the last several years, we just call them students.

I kid. I kid because they're right. And not to be snotty, but what administrators at FDU have realized over the last four years of regulatory clearance is that it's really, really hard to get into the states anymore from some countries -- countries whose residents call Canada a nice new home away from home. The implications of the current administrations stranglehold immigration policies post-[gasp] 9/11 happen to be bearing the fruits of economic rust.
