3 College Sophomore

Diversity: FIU is a open diverse student community. We have students visiting from all around the world. Also what's awesome is the friendly atmosphere at this school. There isn't any racial calamities or subliminal racism that i have picked up. Therefore, i guess it is safe to say that this school is in fact not a challenge to "ethnic/racial diversity". Economic background is also diverse. We have affluent individuals riding in luxurious vehicles to students crossing the street on a bike. But still there is respect and ubiquitous kindness regardless of the situation. Politics is a very senistive and intriguing matter. Remarks or rebuttals will occur but nothing too malicious. Religion here is fantastic. In the aspect of, as mentioned previously, the open community. We have religions showing us their colors. This is great because what other way can we understand people better than by experiencing with them. LGBT is also present among our student community. They have shared the idea that sexual orientation should not dehumanize one another. I'm glad that i'm attending a diverse school.
