Why Diversity Matters
Diversity can be somewhat of a buzzword with students and university admissions officers alike. For the purposes of producing diversity scores, College Factual defines diversity as the most plurality. Schools that score high in diversity metrics are those with the greatest variety in ethnicity, gender, age, and geographic location of origin.

Athens Technical College Overall Diversity Not Known
While we are able to calculate at least one measure of diversity for almost all colleges, Athens Technical College is an exception.
Racial Diversity Unknown
Racially-diverse college campuses offer students the opportunity to study and learn with undergraduates from racial and ethnic groups that are different from their own.
Unfortunately, Athens Technical College did not provide enough diversity data, so we were unable to calculate a ranking.
Male to Female Diversity Unknown
Did you know that the average male to female ratio on college campuses is skewed towards women? There are currently about six females for every four males attending college. We've calculated this percentage for most of the colleges inside our database, but unfortunately, we do not have enough data on Athens Technical College's male to female diversity to provide you with this info.
Geographic Diversity Not Known
Some young people prefer a school that mostly represents students from within their own state, while some are searching for schools that recruit and attract students from all over the nation and the world. What are you looking for?
For most of the colleges within our database, we were able to derive the geographic diversity by looking at where matriculated undergraduate students lived before enrolling in college.
Unfortunately, we do not have the data to determine Athens Technical College's geographic diversity rating.

Age Diversity Unknown
Some students may prefer to be surrounded by other students in the same age range, while others seek perspectives from other generations.
Traditionally, students range in age from 18 to 21. For most of the colleges within our database, we were able to determine the age distribution of the student body. Sadly, we were not able to do so for Athens Technical College, as the information is not available.
Questions About Diversity
- What do we mean when we refer to diversity in college?
Often when we speak of diversity, which is defined as "variety", what we mean is multiculturalism, or the acceptance of individuals of different ethnicities, cultures, races, religions and financial backgrounds. When most students seek diversity on a college campus, what they are looking for are opportunities to express themselves and find community with others who believe the same way, as well as opportunities to learn from those from different cultures and backgrounds.
- Is Athens Technical College supporting learners from all economic backgrounds?
Schools with otherwise excellent racial and ethnic diversity still may not be diverse when it comes to other factors, such as financial backgrounds. Get a better idea of how Athens Technical College supports low-income students by visiting the Financial Aid Page.
