3 College Freshman

Diversity: As a college that prides itself on diversity it does not have as wide a variety as it wants, but still larger than any school I have ever gone to.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Most people at Georgia College fall into the same mold: white from an upper-middle class family. But no one looks at anybody differently for not fitting that mold.

3 College Senior

Diversity: I have never seen or experienced anything hurtful or blatantly hateful on campus towards people who have different beliefs than others. However to me it seems that there aren't very many minorities to begin with so it is not a topic that comes up very often.

At Georgia College, there seems to be a good representation of all backgrounds, beliefs, and nationalities. The International Education Center on campus advises the International Club, and works with students and faculty to promote international and cross-cultural learning as well as respect for diversity. GCSU also offers the SOAR (Student Oriented Activities and Resources) program which matches minority students with student mentors to help them successfully transition into college.

In terms of actual numbers, though, GCSU doesn't always look that diverse on paper. A majority of students is white and from the state of Georgia. Yet, students are very open to other students' differences through activities like the International Club and other programs.
