MISSOULA, Mont. -

University of Montana officials say a record number of foreign students are enrolled at the school.
    
Officials on Friday reported that 536 foreign students from 72 countries are taking classes for the 2012-2013 academic year.
    
University spokesman Peter Baker says that the increase in foreign students is likely due to collaboration between the Graduate School, Enrollment Service and the International Program.
    
Officials say that last year 406 foreign students attended the university.
