College can be an incredibly influential adventure in one's life; it is a chance for individual growth and development. Pupils start to find out what they are capable of and forge many of the needed skills to become a thriving member of society. But growth is not purely found in a classroom - the campus dialogue, the funny story learned from a tenured professor, the exposure to a different background. As such, finding a diverse college tremendously enhances what you gain from your time spent in university.

Statistics is a pretty ethnically diverse major. It has the 7th highest share of students of other races**. 46% of America's Statistics majors are students of other races**, followed by white students (30%), asian students (18%), and latino students (5%). The most racially diverse college* in the top 100 is Arizona State University-Polytechnic located in Mesa, AZ.

Additionally, Statistics slightly skews male, with 43% of majors identifying as men. The most gender balanced school in the top 100 is Butler University in Indianapolis, IN.

Another significant type of diversity is socioeconomic diversity. Statistics ranks close to average for income diversity (53rd percentile). 31% of its majors come from homes who take home more than $110,000 a year, 16% are from households with $48,000 to $75,000 annual incomes, and 23% grew up in homes that bring in below $30,000 a year. University of North Florida is the most fiscally diverse institution in the top 100.

Considering each type of diversity, overall AZ is the most diverse state for Statistics. The New England is the most diverse region, and the Conference USA is the most diverse conference.
