4 College Sophomore

Diversity: I try to be very open minded when it comes to diversity. I am a religious person, but I do not try to argue with people about their opinions. I feel that everyone should have the right to choose who they want to be, and be able to do what they want.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

The reality of the diverse nature of IUPUI’s campus is not completely shown by the statistics alone. Most students would agree that there is great diversity at IUPUI. There is even an International House reserved for students that come from overseas. IUPUI prides itself on diversity and hosts a great number of festivals and celebrations for minority cultures. For example, two of the most popular campus traditions are the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Dinner and the MLK Day of Service. These events take place in February as the entire campus is celebrating Black History Month. In addition to these multicultural festivals, IUPUI has several speakers from all walks of life come to the school every year to address different perspectives, races, cultures, and ethnicities.

IUPUI considers the benefits of fostering a diverse campus. The University will grow socially and academically by recruiting, retaining, promoting, and advancing individuals that come from all parts of our world. Students learn more when diversity is available for them. IUPUI has a Web site that discusses their mission, goals, and philosophy when it comes to diversity (www.iupui.edu/diversity), where students can find out more about the diversity of the campus before deciding to attend. Special services offered to certain minorities include English lab, the International Student Center, special counselors and advisors, an ESL (English as a second language) program, special orientation, and many others.

Gay Pride
IUPUI has a significant gay community and supports it through organizations like the Advocate. The Advocate is a very active student organization that hosts many activities which promote gay rights in the community.
Political Activity
Most of the students that speak out on campus are, for the most part, liberal. However, all types of students love to debate at IUPUI, and many gather around Democracy Plaza to do so. Democracy Plaza was designed by students and consists of four huge chalkboards that sit beneath the business building breezeway. Every day, students either write on the boards or gather around the plaza to debate pertinent social and political issues.
Economic Status
Many students at IUPUI are non-traditional adults that have had work experience and are looking to advance in their careers. This fact would classify several students at the “working class” to middle income level. The younger students on campus are usually in a more modest section of society as well—not many people seem to be “rich.”
Most Common Religions
There are several religions on campus, but the one that is most active is Christianity. Campus Crusade for Christ and organizations such as this are very active and lively. There are other groups that are very active, but less present, such as the Muslim Student Association.
Minority Clubs on Campus
There are several minority clubs on campus that are very active. The Muslim Student Association, Black Student Union, Chinese Culture Club, and Japanese Student Association are only a few. Check out the extensive list of student organizations at the end of this book for more!
