There are more than I was exposed to in my high school. Stanford has a fairly diverse group of students on campus.
I think we're at about 10% African American.
Yes, Stanford is one of the most diverese colleges out there. It has about 10-15 percent of African American students.
There aren't that many African-Americans on campus. African-Americans make up about 6% of the undergradutes (440 out of 6,999 according to the Stanford website). Of course this doesn't take into consideration Black Hispanics and multi-racial students and Stanford is still very diverse compared to many other schools, but African-Americans don't make up 10-15%.
What? Where have you been? I feel that it's more even, but honestly, while there are definitely good looking guys and girls. I think there is a slightly higher proportion of single beautiful women, compared to single good looking dudes....

The level of attractiveness at Stanford is definitely up for debate. Many students feel that the Stanford population is reasonably good looking. However, a lot of students, particularly the male ones, will express the controversial opinion that at Stanford the guys are hot, and the girls are not. Engineering majors of both sexes have a particularly bad reputation for being awkward and unattractive. Dating at Stanford can be tricky, because many students feel the need to put so much time into their studies. If you come to Stanford as a slightly awkward overachiever and you don’t make the effort to meet girls or guys, you definitely won’t.
There is a lot of "going steady" and less casual dating, but there is also a hookup culture, about equal to the amount of steady relationships. People who are more into casual dating tend to join fraternities and sororities. Given the good weather and athletic culture of the school, there’s definitely a general concern for physical fitness. This often translates to some hard bodies, but the faces can’t quite stack up. After all, most students were nerds in high school, and not surprisingly, that ineptness carries over into higher education.
