New England College touts student body diversity
The freshman class, one of the three largest classes in 30 years, began moving in to the dorms over the weekend and buzzed in and out of the Simon Center, checking their mailboxes and looking for information about parking stickers.
The total African-American population on campus is 20 percent, Kalakonas said, and 5.4 percent of the students come from foreign countries.
"We are delighted to see that our programs and style of education are resulting in more students choosing New England College," said New England College President Michele Perkins. "I believe our environment of learning and culture of inclusion is a large part of our success."
"It's not something I really thought about," he said.
"I've made new friends from different nations and I really enjoy learning about their cultures and languages," he said.
"There are always a ton of things to do and a lot of different people to meet, making the college experience memorable and rewarding," he said.
