People from many surrounding communities become students at Crafton Hills. There are also some organizations in the area that sponsor international students. There are teachers who were born in places as far away as China, Russia, and Japan, and these are not just the language teachers. This makes Crafton a very diverse community with many different ethnicities. Add to this the wide range of clubs that cover topics like sociology, anime, academics, music, child development, math, race, religion, and so on. Participation in the clubs is voluntary, and each club's membership is usually not exceptionally high, as most students are at the College for the classes rather than the clubs. Still, their existence brings together students from diverse backgrounds who share common interests and goals. Some students come from wealthy families, and others are low-income people who would not be able to afford the fees of the school without assistance. Every color of skin and difference in creed shows up somewhere on campus, making classes far more diverse and interesting than you might think.
Imagine a sociology class where a student talks about the lack of potable water in her home country or an interpersonal communications class where a student from the Southern part of Africa talks about his marriage in America to an immigrant from Iran and how this affects their relationship. These events have happened at Crafton and will continue to do so with the rich and diverse cultures that come together. This diversity also fosters tolerance and acceptance. All of the students are at Crafton for the same basic reasons—to learn and grow. It is a common thread that helps bind them together, no matter their background.
