College can be a profoundly productive period of one's life; it's an opportunity for personal growth and evolution. Pupils begin to learn what they want to do with their lives and cultivate many of the imperative skills to become a thriving adult. But growth is deeper than what one learns in a classroom environment - the campus dialogue, the personal lesson received from a tenured professor, the exposure to a different take on things. Therefore, attending a diverse college greatly improves what one gains from the time at university.

Nutrition Sciences is a more racially diverse focus than average*. 54% of the United States' Nutrition Sciences majors are white students, followed by latino students (17%), asian students (13%), and students of other races**(12%).

Additionally, Nutrition Sciences skews very female, more so barely greater than seven eighths of subjects. 84% of students majoring in Nutrition Sciences identify as women. The most gender balanced school in the top 100 is University of Massachusetts-Lowell in Lowell, MA.
