Highlighted in the graphs is the number of returnees, separated in graphs by their College and within the graph separated by their majors. Highlighting the student demographic on campus, a total of eight students in the Criminal Justice Department returned from an education abroad program, which is one of the top enrolled majors of this campus. A second finding comes from the College of BILSA, in which 13 Biology students returned from an education abroad program. For this term, this was the highest number attributed to a specific major.
