With more than 100 languages spoken on campus and nearly as many countries represented among its student body, Brooklyn College is one of the nation's most diverse. According to Diverse, a magazine dedicated to issues of diversity in higher education, it is one of the top 100.

Brooklyn College ranks among the top 10 schools in the United States for graduating African Americans with baccalaureate degrees in accounting and in the top 20 for African Americans with baccalaureate degrees in business administration and management.

In addition to the diversity of its student body, Brooklyn College is recognized for its value.

The college is also included among the 376 best colleges in the United States, according to The Princeton Review, which names it a Best Northeastern College.

Brooklyn College "is the perfect representative of Brooklyn that educates its students in an environment that reflects diversity, opportunity, and support," The Princeton Review says. "Brooklyn College entices bright students looking for an affordable, quality, undergraduate experience."
