4 College Freshman

Diversity: Alvernia University is a great campus. It’s atmosphere is among the top I have ever encountered (as a student and visitor). I am extremely proud to call Alvernia home.

4 College Junior

Diversity: The population of students and administrators is rather diverse. It is encouraged to both students and faculty to be both tolerant and accepting of different political beliefs, economic backgrounds, as well as ethnic/racial diversity. Due to the fact that Alvernia is a Catholic University, there are several required classes that must be taken in order to be exposed to Catholic beliefs. These Catholic views are presented in classes, but are by no means forced upon students to accept.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: We are a very religious school if you choose to take part in the spiritual aspect of school, and diversity wise, there is a little bit of it.

3 College Junior

Diversity: Since it was a Catholic all girls college the diversity is now starting to grow on campus.

5 College Junior

Diversity: We have a lot of students from several different backgrounds which gives flavor to certain lectures where culture is the topic of interest, especially when talking about Mental Health / Addiction stigmas and treatment. The college is a Catholic based university and we are required to take up to 3 Theology courses which can give rise to interesting debates when there is such a diverse population of students.
