Biola is huge on "community" and stresses that one of the largest parts of having a functioning, loving community is having strong connections with those of diverse backgrounds. As such, Biola is always having events to celebrate the beauty of diversity, whether through chapel services, Missions Conference, or even cafeteria dinner specials. A majority of the Biolan population is either white or Asian, but they together only make up about 50 percent of the school. The rest of the students are a myriad of different ethnicities, making for a great melting pot of culture on campus. Nobody is intimidated or ever feels threatened. The worst that ever happens is just getting used to all the various backgrounds on campus during the first week of school, but most (if not all) students are quick to adapt to this new feature in their lives.
It may sound strange, but Biolans really do love the diversity aspect of the school. Missions Conference, a week during the first half of the spring semester, is a time when students take a week off from school to celebrate diversity, trying different foods, clothing, and lifestyles, learning more and more about whatever culture they're interested in. Booths are set up all around the school, and speakers from all over the world come to celebrate.
