College is an awfully formative time of one's life; it's an occasion for individual growth and maturation. Students begin to discover what they desire to become and develop many of the needed skills to become a halcyon member of society. But growth isn't confined to the classroom - the interactions which one has with her peers, the personal lesson gained from an eccentric professor, the exposure to a different approach. As such, attending a diverse college vastly enhances what one gains from the time at college.

East Asian Studies is a more popular major among students of color than white students. 38% of the US' East Asian Studies majors are students of other races**, followed by white students (30%), asian students (22%), and latino students (8%).

Second, East Asian Studies significatly skews female, with 55% of students majoring in East Asian Studies identifying as women. The most gender balanced school in the top 100 is Colby College in Waterville, ME.
