Diversity Makes a Difference
Diversity can be somewhat of a buzzword with university admissions officers and students. 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.

Questions About Diversity
- What do we mean when we refer to diversity in college?
The root word of diversity is from the Latin, "diversus" which means "various". We use it today to describe a mixture of people, traditions, ideas and cultures. 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 varied workforce of tomorrow, as well as inspires creativeness and innovation.
- How is Marietta doing at supporting and attracting students from all financial backgrounds?
Even a school with great racial, ethnic and geographic diversity may not be diverse when it comes to the economic backgrounds of their students. To get a better idea of how Marietta is supporting low-income students check the Financial Aid Page.
