Racial Breakdown of the LARGEST California PUBLIC Colleges

Posted: Updated:

Students are rallying across the country today in protest of rising tuition fees and increasing budget cuts in public colleges.

And it all began in California, home to two of the largest college systems in the U.S. -- the University of California, whose 10 schools are attended by some 191,000 students, and the California State University, whose 23 campuses are attended by more than 417,000. Numbering at nearly 37 million, the Golden State is the most populous state in the country, and it's a minority-majority state: Hispanics, Asians, African Americans and those of mixed races make up the majority of California's population.

That diversity is not necessarily represented in the state's top schools, as proven by recent racist events at the University of California-San Diego. Here's the racial breakdown of some of the state's largest public schools.
