Comparing colleges based on diversity

August 19, 2019 0 By Stanley Isaacs


– Many colleges now, if not all, have information and what they call the demographics of
the student population. And that’s important for you to look at, because that’s one of the kind of scary transitioning to college is, “Gee, everybody is different from me.” And that can be frightening. And you need that
support of other students who share your background. And you also want to know
as much as you can find out is how much the university or the college is putting resources
into supporting students from different backgrounds. So look into that. Find out if there’s a diversity office. So find out if there are other
academic resources there. Find out how do they recruit students from different backgrounds. That all will give you indicators of how serious and
committed the college is about supporting students
from different backgrounds. And that becomes very, very important. You want to succeed
when you go to college, and one thing that will help you succeed is being in an environment
that supports you, who you are and your background.
