30. Keep in mind that on UC campuses Affirmative action was cancelled.
So the student population is more white than it was in 1995. So it may not be that college students are changing, it may be that by lowering the non-white population on campus the students seem more conservative. Or if this makes more sense, by lowering the cultural diversity of the student population on UC campuses, the politics of the student body, in the cited report, reflects the range of mostly white opinions rather than whole of 18-24 year olds of college students.
