Diversity in College is Important
Diversity can be somewhat of a buzzword among both students and college admissions officers 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.
With all of this in mind, what does 'diversity in college' mean?
When most students seek diversity on campus, what they are actually 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.
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 a climate where students can exchange different ideas and perspectives in meaningful and positive ways.
