This chart captures the surge in international students attending CMU on campus within the most recent years. It specifically provides the visual impact of relatively stagnant international student totals, with the exception of the recent explosion among mainly Saudi Arabian and Indian students between 2009-14.

Charts and timelines are best at presenting information over the course of time. Charts are best used for more data oriented information, whereas it is best to use timelines to plot events, such as those related to crime(s) that occurred over a long period of time.
