The campus is totally diverse in all aspects of the word. Many of the students are on full scholarships, while some don't worry about money for a second. During the 2008 presidential election, there was an equal amount of supporters on both sides. There is someone from every race, religion, and walk of life on campus, and there is a club, fraternity, or sorority for everyone, every opinion, and every issue.

Minority and international students make up more than 40 percent of the student body, and the University ranks nationally as one of the top schools in terms of diversity. FAU celebrates the cultures, customs, and heritage represented within the University community in a multitude of ways, from formal academic programs and lectures to clubs and social events.
