PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Brown University says it has made offers to more than 2,600 students for the prospective graduating class of 2018.

The university said the offers to 2,619 students represent 8.6 percent of 30,432 applicants for next fall.

Brown said the group receiving offers is its most diverse ever, with 45 percent identifying themselves as African American, Latino, Native American or Asian American. It said 18 percent are the first generation of their families to go to college, also a record for Brown.

The students accepted come from all 50 states, with the most from California, New York, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Florida. International students accepted come from 88 countries, with the most from China, India, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Korea.

Brown expects about 1,500 to attend next fall.
