Diversity: Appalachian has an extremely diverse campus and it's wonderful! I met and made so many friends of different cultures, ethnic and racial backgrounds while at ASU. Everyone is so friendly and willing to learn and be accepting of others. Many different religions and views, but it doesn't matter. People are so accepting at Appalachian.

Diversity: Although somewhat lacking in ethnic diversity, we have a very active Multicultural Club, LGBT Center, Women's Center, and many other human rights groups, culminating in the Human Rights Week each year. ASU is certainly a very inviting environment when diversity is present, and many of us study abroad at some point. However, it's just that not very much diversity is present at all times.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: People are generally very accepting here. I wouldn't say it is a very racially diverse campus though.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is a ton of diversity at Appalachian. You have to be open to it, you never know who you're going to meet and what they're going to believe in. I try to be very accepting of other people's beliefs. I don't necessarily have to believe in what they do or try to force my beliefs on them. I just try to be a good listener and not judgmental.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Diversity on campus is there, but not huge. As you walk around campus you see people from all walks of life, yes, but not as diverse as a lot of other universities.
