Diversity is one of the Mount's biggest strengths, and the thing that students seem to love most about campus is the diversity. After being on campus for only five minutes, you will be surrounded by a vast global community. Because of the Mount’s diverse population, racial barriers are nowhere to be seen. Interracial mingling is ubiquitous on campus. Everyone is very friendly, accepting, and excited to meet new people, regardless of their nationality, their political opinion, or their religious beliefs. Numerous cultural events are held throughout the school year, which allow students of any background become more aware of the diversity surrounding them. The welcoming, acceptance, and understanding of any culture is a beautiful aspect of the Mount.
While there is likely political diversity here, politics are rarely discussed—and the students seem to like it that way. But, if you are looking for an intense political debate, you could probably find one if you looked hard enough. Religion is treated the same as politics. While the religious diversity is vast, it is not a huge topic of discussion on the campus. And although the College was built upon a Catholic foundation, it is never imposed or forced upon the students here.
