College often is one of the more influential investments in one's life; it's a chance for personal progress and development. Pupils start to ascertain what they would like to do and build the needed skills to be a prosperous member of society. But learning isn't completely confined to a classroom environment - the interactions which one has with her schoolmates, the wild anecdote learned from an old professor, the exposure to a different point of view. Therefore, a diverse student population vastly enhances what you gain from your time in school.

Landscape Architecture is a more racially diverse focus than average*. 54% of America's Landscape Architecture majors are white students, followed by students of other races**(23%), latino students (11%), and asian students (8%).

Second, Landscape Architecture is pretty diverse regarding sex, with 53% of students majoring in Landscape Architecture identifying as women. The most gender balanced school in the top 100 is University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, AR.

Another important type of diversity is financial diversity.
