College often is one of the more consequential periods of one's life; it's an occasion for personal progress and development. Scholars begin to capture what they are capable of and learn the indispensable skills to become a prosperous adult. But learning is more than sitting in a classroom - the interactions which one has with his peers, the life lesson gained from an eccentric instructor, the exposure to a different interpretation of the situation. As such, attending a diverse college vastly enhances what you gain from your time spent at college.

Biological and Biomedical Sciences is a more popular subject for students of color than white students. 48% of America's Biological and Biomedical Sciences majors are white students, followed by asian students (22%), latino students (13%), and students of other races**(13%). The most racially diverse college* in the top 100 is Pomona College&nbspin Claremont, CA.

Second, Biological and Biomedical Sciences significatly skews female, with three fifths of students majoring in Biological and Biomedical Sciences identifying as women. The most gender balanced school in the top 100 is Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN.

Another substantial type of diversity is class diversity. Unfortunately, Biological and Biomedical Sciences is one of the US' least fiscally diverse subjects (Bottom 38%). 31% of its students come from very high income homes, 16% are from households that bring in between $48,000 and $75,000 a year, and 24% grew up in families bringing in below $30,000 a year. University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is the most fiscally diverse institution in the top 100.

Considering each type of diversity, overall NJ is the most diverse state for Biological and Biomedical Sciences. The Mid East is the most diverse region, and the Conference USA is the most diverse conference.
