Top Stories: Fewer International Students, The New Symphony Chief And Holiday Movie Tips

Nov 24, 2017

The top local stories this evening from KERA News:

After years of growth, international student applications are down 6 percent at the University of Texas at Dallas. This is a big concern for UTD, where one in four undergraduates and half of grad students were born outside the U.S., and it's part of a national trend.

Other stories this evening:

  • Kim Noltemy will make history when she arrives in Dallas this January: She'll be the first female president and CEO of the Dallas Symphony. KERA's Jerome Weeks caught up with her by phone from Boston, where she's been the symphony's chief operating and communications officer.
  • For everyone who's tired of hanging at home with the family, our Big Screen team -- KERA's Stephen Becker and Chris Vognar of The Dallas Morning News -- has some suggestions on what to see when you finally escape to the movie theater.
