I visited UC Irvine for the first time this Saturday and noticed that almost everyone appeared to be Caucasian or Asian. (this was for and honors experience day where many of the students were Regents Scholars)
What's your take on this?
How important is diversity?
I'd particularly like to hear from the variaous under-represented groups at universities (Hispanics-one example) Speak up!

I think diversity is very important. I couldn't survive at any school that had one race. Even if it was black (HBCU's for example) I wouldn't enjoy it. (I'm black btw)

UCI is known among its students as:

University of Chinese Immigrants

As opposed to:

University of California, Irvine.

It's a personal thing - consider: has knowing people who are white/black/hispanic/asian/whatever been a positive experience for you simply because those people were white/black/hispanic/asian/whatever?

Other college acronyms:

UCI - University of Civics and Integras

USC - Univ. of spoiled children or Univ. of South Central

UCLA - Univ. of Caucasians lost among asians
