Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Jordana Lopez-da Silva
View all previous student authors

With Hispanics, African Americans, and Asians comprising up to 85 percent of the student body and women comprising 70 percent of the student body, Lehman is definitely one of the most diverse colleges. There are many languages and dialects spoken on campus, and a wide range of ethnicities, nationalities, cultures, religions, and orientations are represented.

The diversity adds to the general sense of acceptance (no one sticks out and everyone manages to find his or her own niche), and the clubs on campus reflect that diversity, as well. Unlike other college campuses in the United States, the student body isn’t homogenous. Lehman’s campus, like all of New York City, is the ultimate melting pot.
