Diversity Makes a Difference
Diversity can be somewhat of a buzzword among both college admissions officers and students alike. What does it mean to you?
Often when we speak of diversity, which is simply defined as "variety", what we mean is multiculturalism, or the acceptance of people of different ethnicities, races, cultures, beliefs and economic backgrounds.
How does this translate to the college experience?
Diversity can be a huge benefit to students, as it not only exposes them to new ideas and ways of thinking, it prepares them for the diverse workforce of tomorrow, as well as inspires creativeness and innovation.
The college years provide a unique opportunity for students to have direct exposure to other backgrounds and cultures. Students should look for a college administration that is not only encouraging diversity institutionally, but also fostering an atmosphere where students can exchange different perspectives and ideas in meaningful and positive ways.

Would you prefer a school where the student body represents a mix of different ages and generations, or would you prefer a school where most students are the same age as you?
