SAN DIEGO (AP) - There will be more black freshmen on the University of California, San Diego, campus this fall, but statistics released by the university shows African Americans represent less than 2 percent of the incoming class.

UC San Diego stepped up efforts to recruit black students after an off-campus "Compton Cookout" party mocking African Americans made national headlines and led to protests.

The university says there will be 68 black freshman this fall, up from 50 last year.

Of the incoming class of 4,206, Asian Americans make up 48 percent. White students are 20 percent of the class and 16 percent are Hispanic.

Other UC campuses plan to release their enrollment figures next month.
