With respect to the Class of 2016 (Campus Notebook, Oct. 10), 42.1 percent of the students are “U.S. minority” and 11.3 percent are “international.” This leaves 46.6 percent who are something else, presumably U.S. students who are “white.”

So the “whites” are a minority (less than 50 percent), or perhaps, more accurately, a plurality. Compared to the U.S. population, I suspect that the “U.S. minority” students are overrepresented in the Class of 2016.

The Princeton University from which I graduated is long gone. I am not going to worry about it.
