To be honest, about the only multi-colored aspect of Marlboro College is the leaves in autumn. There are a few Indian students and a few African American students, but the majority of Marlboro's population is classified as Caucasian. Why such a lack in racial diversity for such a liberal and free-thinking school? Consider the fact that Vermont is the whitest state in the country. People don't generally enjoy being the "super-minority." Though complaints about a racially homogeneous population are frequent, the school does not accept students based on race.
Now for the plus side. With a tiny population of 300, Marlboro is probably one of the most diverse places you'll ever encounter. There are students here with all sorts of interests, talents, accents, sexual orientations, genders, hobbies, and of course, personalities. Everyone at Marlboro is very unique. You can strike up a conversation with anyone and discover the amazing adventures and experiences that have shaped who they are. Marlboro's student population is very globally oriented, and most individuals have traveled abroad more than once. Also, there is a substantial lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender population on campus. Generally, people will respect your space and, oftentimes, celebrate who you are.
