3 College Senior

Diversity: There is a fairly significant amount of diversity. Individuals from all ethnic backgrounds are present here and even some individuals from other countries.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: We have a mixture of African-Americans, Hispanics, Caucasian, and few Asians. Predominantly Caucasian so I feel like we have lots of room for improvement. It's definitely getting more diverse as the years go by however.

4 College Junior

Diversity: We have a lot of diversity but there is a large group from Texas but that is okay. I remember meeting someone from Egypt we call him Tati. lots of different people around the US. We so have a girl from Romania. No one is racist that I know of. More girls than boys which is awesome for me. We almost all Christians and we meet for Chapel every weekday at 10:15

3 College Junior

Diversity: There are several here who are of different races. Most here share the same faith, but it is not a large percentage of individuals who are different

For such a small school, Florida College is pretty diverse. Students come to the College from 35 U.S. states and six foreign countries. Not bad for a school that typically consists of 500 enrolled students. In fact, 70 percent of undergrads are out-of-state students. However, in other ways, it's not so diverse. There aren't many organizations on campus advocating different cultures or religions. And there's no LGBT club, either, because being gay is frowned upon at the College.

Gay Pride
Involvement in fornication or homosexual activities merits automatic suspension. Those who do such things keep it as quiet as possible and are at a high risk of getting kicked out of school.
Political Activity
In the area of politics, FC students could best be described as negligent. While most FC students would consider themselves conservatives, political activity is very minimal. The most political activity that took place was when the Phi Theta Kappa honors society set up a table in the Student Center to encourage students to apply for absentee ballots during the 2008 presidential election.
Economic Status
Despite the high tuition of the school, students with a low economic status are still able to attend due to the Adopt Program, as well as scholarships, but there are still many students "higher on the hog."
Most Common Religions
Biblical Christianity
