Natalie Portman on Harvard

Natalie Portman on Harvard.

The thing about school that upset me most, I think, was the “international student body.” When you visit colleges in high school they all boast about how many countries they have represented there, but what they don’t tell you is that those students are all vacationing together in places like Saint-Tropez. I mean, it’s fine to have a rich international component because that’s part of the world too, but having traveled so much after graduation, I’ve met all these people from different countries; it would have been so amazing if my class at Harvard had included a little of that as well. I mean, the students are diversified in terms of geography and race, but not really in terms of class – class diversity is practically nonexistent. It’s disappointing, particularly at a place that’s really devoted to providing you with an outlook on the world.

  1. Wayniac,

    This is perfect. It totally sums thing up for Stanford, too. I think diversity is overrated, actually, but if a university is going to have diversity then it ought to be meaningful. Where did you find this, anyways?
