College students that live with students of another race may end up having more friends of that race over time, a new study reports.
The study, "Interracial Friendships in College," was conducted at Berea College in Kentucky by two University of Western Ontario economists and a professor emertius of mathematics from Berea.
The Chronicle of Higher Education has more on the results:
... the Berea findings suggest that students may begin college with misperceptions of incompatibility with students of other races that certain forms of interracial contact can help alleviate.
