Bunker Hill Community College has been named one of the US colleges with the most international students.

The college was ranked 26 out of 40 on the Chronicle of Higher Education’s list of associate degree programs with the most international students. It is the only community college in Massachusetts to make the list.

There are currently 784 international students speaking 75 different languages from more than 90 countries enrolled at Bunker Hill Community College, which is the state’s largest community college with approximately 13,000 students.

“We are delighted to earn this recognition,” Vilma Tafawa, director of college’s International Center, said in a statement. Tafawa said the presence of international students “enriches everyone” in the community.
