Diversity Distinguishes Princeton’s Class of 2024

The 1,823 students offered admission for the CLASS OF 2024 make up a racially and ethnically diverse group of high schoolers: Of the accepted students from the United States, 61 percent self-identified as people of color, which Princeton defines as Asian, black, Hispanic, biracial or multiracial, and other non-white students. “These students are artists, scientists, athletes, musicians, caregivers, debaters, and much more,” said Dean of Admission Karen Richardson ’93. “Most importantly, through their applications, they showed a real desire to engage with others in the types of critical yet respectful discussions that make Princeton a dynamic place.”https://paw.princeton.edu/article/diversity-distinguishes-princetons-class-2024
