College is a very significant adventure in one's life; it's a chance for personal progress and expansion. Students continue to capture what they would like to do with their lives and cultivate the requisite skills to become a successful adult. But growth is deeper than what one learns in the classroom - the campus dialogue, the funny story learned from an eccentric professor, the exposure to a different life experience. Therefore, attending a diverse college tremendously improves what you gain from your time spent at college.

Communication Sciences and Disorders is a less ethnically diverse major than average*. 67% of the US' Communication Sciences and Disorders majors are white students, followed by latino students (20%), asian students (6%), and students of other races**(5%). The most racially diverse college* in the top 100 is California State University-East Bay located in Hayward, CA.
