4 College Junior

Diversity: Extremely diverse in ethnicity. Bob Jones University is known to be conservative.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Bob Jones is a very conservative Christian school, so the religious diversity is extremely low. However, BJ is very racially/ethnically diverse; in fact, during second semester, one of my roommates was half-German and the other was from South Korea. The students also come from varying economic backgrounds.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Outside of race and ethnicity there isn't much diversity. This is a private Christian college we are talking about. Because of this most everyone is of similar religious and political backgrounds. The ones that aren't however, are by no means shunned. In fact anyone that seems a bit out is actually that much more accepted and integrated into groups to make sure that they have a strong group of friends that they can go to if anyone does try to say or do something negatively towards them.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: The ethnic and racial backgrounds of the students are very diverse. However the backgrounds of the students don't affect relationships or friendships among the students. Overall, there is a very united feeling among the student body.

Believe it or not, BJU can be described as a huge ethnic melting pot. The media might project BJU as a white-dominated conservative Christian school; however, that projection is just a stereotype. Students come from all over the world to experience the great academic opportunities provided by BJU. The enrollment rate of international, missionary, and out-of-state students is dominant, which helps keep BJU more diverse. BJU supports missionary families, and the children of missionaries tend to complete their degrees at BJU to honor the University’s support. Overall, despite what the media might say, students at BJU are very accepting towards other cultures.

It is true that BJU is a bit politically and religiously affiliated. A great number of people at BJU are Christians and support conservative Republicans. Students tend to be more opinionated about political and religious issues, and sometimes it is overly debated.
