All-white colleges existence?

Hey, is it true that there are some all-white colleges in the US? I was just curious, and I'd like to know if that's actually a thing.

While there may have been colleges in the past that were predominantly or even exclusively white, today, it is illegal for any college in the United States to discriminate based on race, color, or national origin, according to Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. As a result, it is not legal for schools to admit only white students.

That being said, there can be some colleges with a predominantly white student population. This may be due to various factors such as location, history, or demographic trends; however, all accredited colleges and universities in the US are required to adhere to anti-discrimination laws and accept students of all racial and ethnic backgrounds.

If you're interested in learning more about the racial and ethnic diversity on a specific college campus, many colleges provide this information on their websites, often under sections related to admissions or diversity and inclusion. Additionally, organizations such as CollegeVine and the College Board provide college profiles that can give you insights into the demographics of different schools.
