This Small West Virginia College Is One Of The Most Diverse Educational Institutions In The U.S.
Here’s something not many people realize: one of the most diverse colleges in the U.S. is right here in West Virginia. It’s located in the small town of Charles Town, West Virginia, and it’s within the American Public University System.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
The American Public University System is the umbrella for two college institutions, the American Public University and the American Military University.
The physical building for these colleges is located in Charles Town, West Virginia. However, one of the things that makes the American Public University System unique and appealing for many is that it specializes in online education.
As a result, it includes one of the most diverse student bodies in the entire nation, including a variety of ethnicities, ages, and life stages. It's the most diverse college in West Virginia, and in the top 100 most diverse colleges in America.
Making the top 100 is a pretty significant achievement, considering there are over 5,300 colleges and universities in the United States!
Students at the American Public University System will discover that, among their almost 90,000 fellow students, 89% are working adults. Eighty-five percent are associated with the military in some way. The average age of the student body at the American National University System is 32.
Half of the students identify as White/Caucasian (50%), and the other half identify as Hispanic (16.4%), Black (15.4%), Asian (3%), Native Hawaiian (1%), American Indian (.5%), or other (12.5%).
Degrees available from the American Public University System include Associates, Bachelors, Masters, Doctoral, and other certifications.
If you are looking for a flexible, affordable, diverse option as you pursue a college education, perhaps the American National University System is for you!
