4 College Junior

Diversity: Diversity is a small word, the campus represents everyone and everything. Over a 100 nationalities, dozens of religions and political beliefs - it is extremely difficult to define the campus in one way or another.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: AUP has one of the most diverse student bodies on the planet. When I walk into one of my classes sometimes I hear more than five or six languages being spoken at once. There are students from every continent who come to AUP to study and because of this I feel like I am getting a more well-rounded education in my field because I am being exposed to many different world perspectives.

AUP students are extremely accepting as we all come from different geographic, cultural, religious, political and economic backgrounds. There is no one typical AUP student because of this. One thing that all of my friends and acquaintances here at AUP have in common, though, is that they are all open to and are curious about learning of world perspectives, beliefs and cultural practices other than their own. So that may be what binds all of us together here at AUP: a curiosity for a more international and global experience in hope that we open our eyes a little more to how other people are living in the world and what we can do to change the world for the better once we graduate and settle into our careers.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are over 90 nationalities represented in the student body. Literally like half of the student body is LGBT. Everyone is relatively wealthy.

5 College Senior

Diversity: People from all over the world come to this University. So many different cultures and races. It's amazing. You will leave with friends from all over the world.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: The university, while being an American University, is still very diverse. We have kids from many other countries beside the United States. It's Paris so the city alone attracts all different sorts of people.

It's Paris! "The City of Lights" and the city of a million different faces. You'll run into all kinds of people here. An AUP education also involves cultural excursions, where professors design a series of trips to give students a more hands-on learning experience while immersing them in the nearby cultures.

Facts & Statistics

Gay Pride
There is not much hype over homosexuality in Paris or within the University.
Political Activity
There is an atmosphere of liberalism at the University (although it is not very difficult to find conservatives). There are clubs and organizations in which students can take part in making decisions within the University. There is the AUPPA which is the student political association.
Economic Status
There are as many students who come from various financial backgrounds as there are from cultural backgrounds. Some students receive their funding from their families, others from loans or financial aid from the University, and some students search for small jobs for some extra cash.
Most Common Religions
Some of the major religions are represented within the student body; however, there is not a huge religious visibility at the University. In some classes, there are sometimes references to different religions based on what you are discussing, but there is hardly a real presence of any religious attitude. There is a real practice of tolerance in the University when it comes to beliefs.
