College often can be a profoundly influential period of one's life; it's an occasion for individual growth and development. Undergraduates try to learn who they want to emulate and forge the requisite skills to become a flourishing member of society. But learning goes far beyond a classroom - the late nights discussing Noriega with a peer, the life lesson received from a tenured professor, the exposure to a different attitude. Therefore, finding a diverse college greatly enriches what you gain from your time at university.

Physiology is a slightly more racially diverse subject than average*. 59% of the United States' Physiology majors are white students, followed by asian students (14%), latino students (14%), and students of other races**(8%). The most ethnically diverse college* in the top 100 is Boston University located in Boston, MA.

Moreover, Physiology significatly skews female, with approximately 5 out of 8 students majoring in Physiology identifying as women. The most gender balanced school in the top 100 is Chapman University in Orange, CA.

Another critical type of diversity is class diversity. Unfortunately, Physiology is one of the US' least financially diverse subjects (Bottom 39%). 31% of its students come from households bringing in over $110,000 per year, 16% are from homes bringing in between $48,000 and $75,000 a year, and 24% grew up in households making below $30,000 a year. Oklahoma State University-Main Campus is the most socioeconomically diverse school in the top 100.

Considering each type of diversity, overall MA is the most diverse state for Physiology. The New England is the most diverse region, and the Patriot League is the most diverse conference.
