I live in a college town and there are people here from all over the world. There are quite a few arabs, Pakistanis, and Africans, many of them muslim. A very small percentage of the muslim men wear the long, dress-like robes. What is the significance of this attire? Is it worn by followers of a certain type of Islam or those from a specific nation?

It's just their style. Nothing political about it

Just like the Jews you see wearing black hats and black suits.
Cultural not religious.

It is easier to hide bombs in a dress.

The galibaya is actually quite comfortable in the desert heat. It covers the whole body but is lightweight and breathes well. I have one that I wear when I'm "over there". It's not a Muslim thing, it's an Arab thing. Same with the kefiyeh, the traditional Arab headdress. Very comfortable, very practical.
