Some Bay Area universities are being recognized for their diverse student bodies. According to “USA Today,” the University of San Francisco is the fourth-most diverse campus in the U.S. USF has one of the highest shares of multi-racial students in its undergraduate population, at 9.6%. Stanford University is the eleventh most-diverse, followed by CSU East Bay in the 13th spot, and San Francisco State University at number 25. In the Sacramento region, UC Davis comes in as the 12th most-diverse college campus and Sacramento State is in the 22nd spot. Researchers based their rankings on what chance that two randomly-selected students would be from a different ethnic group or have a different U.S. citizenship status.
