The diversity on campus ranges, but mostly, FGCU is not a melting pot. But despite the University not being the most diverse school, the people who do come from minorities and unique backgrounds are very well-accepted.  

At FGCU, everyone gets along with each other. While boys will roughhouse, it's uncommon for a fight to break out on campus. Also, for diversity, there is a range of different interests that have common ground on campus. There are many sports, clubs, organizations, and volunteer work opportunities for students to immerse themselves in. All in all, the campus is pretty well rounded for not being a "diverse" school.
