68 Black Students Will Enroll At UC San Diego As Freshmen This Fall
The University of California-San Diego's black enrollment will see a small increase this year, the Los Angeles Times reports.
Sixty-eight black students are part of this fall's incoming class, up from 50 last year. There are more than 4,000 students in the class.
The university has also seen an increase in black students among their transfer student population. Out of 2,943 transfers, 87 are black -- nearly double last year's figure of 46.
Some at the school feared that fewer black students would enroll this year in response to a row of racially charged incidents within the community, including an off-campus party with a "Compton Cookout" theme.
