#FACETHERACE

On almost every university brochure nowadays, they always make sure to include a phrase about how diverse their student body is. However, I never truly understood what that meant until coming to college.

During orientation week of freshman year, I met people from all over the world with such different backgrounds that I had never previously encountered. I was able to easily get along with and learn from my new friends, and even till today, my appreciation for them has come from the heart. Yes, it definitely was a step up from my "diverse" high school, but I ended freshman year wanting more. I understand how far universities have come in accepting students of color, but it's not enough. We are still a minority.

I am beyond impassioned to continue Mogul's #FACETHERACE campaign across Wellesley this summer, and I hope you will join me in the celebration of diversity.

    I agree! I know a lot of people always accuse universities of just trying to fill a 'diversity quota' for the sake of political correctness, but it really is important to have a diverse student body. It's impossible to learn and grow if everyone around you has the exact same background, education, beliefs and ideas. Diversity creates discussion, conversation and presents different opinions and topics that may not have been brought up otherwise. Diversity is incredibly important to the functioning of a learning space such as a college, so universities need to continue on this path to better facilitating it.
