College can be a very constructive period of one's life; it's a chance for personal progress and maturation. Scholars continue to find out what they want to do with their lives and build many of the needed skills to be a successful adult. But growth is deeper than what one learns in the classroom - the discussions one has with their peers, the life lesson learned from an old instructor, the exposure to a different take on things. As such, finding a diverse college greatly enriches what one gains from the time spent in college.

Botany is a less racially diverse subject than average*. 67% of the US' Botany majors are white students, followed by students of other races**(19%), latino students (8%), and asian students (4%).

In addition, Botany is highly diverse when it comes to sex, with 53% of students majoring in Botany identifying as women. The most gender balanced school in the top 100 is Ohio University-Main Campus in Athens, OH.

Another substantial type of diversity is class diversity.
