The graduating Class of 2018 will be a lot more diverse than previous years.
While some of the top Ivy League schools in the U.S. only accept 5 to 10 percent of students who apply, newly released data reports that Harvard University accepted 2,023 students out the 34,295 applicants for the Class of 2018.
Out of the accepted students, 11.9 percent are Black, while Latinos make up 12.1 percent, a record for the university.

Latin American author Gabriel Garcia Marquez, who won the Nobel Prize in literature in 1982, died Thursday. He was 87. Garcia Marquez, the master of a style known as magic realism, was and remains Latin America’s best-known writer.
