5 College Freshman

Diversity: The campus is so diverse in every aspect.

4 College Junior

Diversity: At the off-site campus I attend I would be considered a minority. The majority of the students there are locals and Marion is a predominately black area. I am white.

3 College Senior

Diversity: There are people of different races and whatnot at Coker College, but there is not many diversity as far as different culture and foreign students on campus. Predominately white student body but there is a bit of color here and there.

3 College Junior

Diversity: Mostly White but Internationally Diverse – White students are the majority. I would say 60 - 40 percent ratio, compared with students of color. There is much international diversity which is cool for such a small college

5 College Junior

Diversity: Coker fosters a very diverse atmosphere. There is programming provided, such as the Common ground Association, which is directed toward sexual orientation awareness, as well as various hall and campus wide programs directed towards ethnicity awareness and respect. Coker is interested in ensuring all students feel welcome and accepted for who they are, regardless of their race or choice of gender.
Students are not always aware of who they are in college, and many question their sexuality and worry about not being accepted by peers because of race. It is through education and creating environments that are focused on integrating races and people who may not associate otherwise. Simple introductions are ways to create friendships and foster people's broadening knowledge around them. Coker is able to have a harmonious atmosphere because of the acceptance that is developed in these programs, and the small atmosphere from the campus size allows students to get to know one another quickly and break barriers that could last otherwise.
