It's obvious from walking around campus that Albion is not very diverse. You'll see mostly upper-class white kids from the suburbs, though there are exceptions. The College is trying hard, but it often seems like Albion College students are not. Most students don't come from diverse places, and they can be a little closed-minded when it comes to things they aren't used to. There have unfortunately been a number of racist and homophobic incidents that have occurred on campus. While the College is doing what it can to punish and discourage such acts, its approach can often be underwhelming.
Luckily, there are a lot of student organizations that are taking bigger strides toward diversifying the campus. LGBRITS hosts Coming Out Week every fall, and the Black Student Alliance tries to educate others during Black History Month. The same goes for Albion College Hillel and the Asian Awareness Group. Protests are not uncommon on campus, as the College is fairly politically charged. The College Republicans and Democrats always seem to be at war.
