Racially-diverse college campuses offer students the opportunity to study and learn with undergraduates from ethnic and racial groups that are different from their own.

For most colleges, the male to female ratio is actually skewed toward women, with about six females for every four males. In this section we would usually display what the actual ratio is for this school, but regrettably that data is not available.

Some young people prefer a school that mainly represents local students, while some are searching for schools that attract and recruit students from all over the country and the world. Which is right for you?
