3 College Senior

Diversity: It is ok in my eyes because the diversity is limited which I love but JCU tries to shove diversity down your throat. That I hate.

2 College Sophomore

Diversity: Basically everyone here (who isn't on "academic scholarship" aka sports) is white, Catholic, and republican with rich parents.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: It's a very white/ straight school. Not much diversity on campus, but everyone is expecting and not judgmental towards the diverse crowd.

4 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: Little bizarre. Very vocal liberal minority as well as vocal conservatives. Most people who don't talk politics tend conservative though.

4 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: Diversity is very great at John Carroll. Lots of religious and ethnic groups. Most people are wealthy republicans when it comes to socioeconomic status.
