College often can be an exceedingly influential time in one's life; it is a time for individual progress and evolution. Undergrads begin to discover their purpose and build many of the rudimentary skills to be a successful member of society. But growth isn't solely found in a classroom environment - the late nights discussing Camus with a schoolmate, the personal lesson gained from a tenured professor, the exposure to a different viewpoint. Therefore, a diverse student population tremendously improves what you gain from your time at university.

Radiography is a less racially diverse major than average*. 73% of America's Radiography majors are white students, followed by latino students (15%), black students (5%), and asian students (3%). The most racially diverse college* in the top 100 is St John's University-New York located in Queens, NY.

Second, Radiography significatly skews female, with just about seven ninths of students majoring in Radiography identifying as women. Oakland University in Rochester Hills, MI has the most gender balanced student body in the top 100.

Another significant type of diversity is economic diversity. Sadly, Radiography is less socioeconomically diverse than 88% of subjects in the US. 36% of its majors come from low income homes, 16% are from homes earning between $30,000 and $48,000 a year, and 18% grew up in families that take home over $110,000 a year. Northwest Missouri State University has the most fiscally diverse students in the top 100.

Considering each type of diversity, overall NY is the most diverse state for Radiography. The Southeast is the most diverse region, and the Big East Conference is the most diverse conference.
