This is something to celebrate!
The class of 2018 at Harvard University has already broken records. The ivy league school has accepted a record-high percentage of black students.
According to the Journal of Blacks in Higher Education, 11.9% are black, the highest ever for the university. The journal estimates that nearly 170 black students will enter Harvard this fall. Overall, Harvard accepted only 2,023 students from a pool of 34,295 applicants.
The number one liberal arts college in the country (Williams College) also accepted a high percentage of black students. This year, the college has offered admission to 165 black students, which account for 14.3% of all acceptances this year.
