4 College Junior

Diversity: Though a good portion of the students are Caucasian. Many of them have grown up in other countries. We have a Korean, South American, and Saudi Arabian exchange program.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: This school is built upon the commandment to love one another as God loves us. We love people and accept them regardless of any differences. This is one of the best things about this school. We get so many international students from all over the world with varying beliefs. We treat them with respect and love!

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: This is a Christian University

4 College Junior

Diversity: There is much diversity here in many ways, and that diversity continues to grow.

2 College Sophomore

Diversity: Quite a few international students and missionary kids. Large percentage of homeschoolers. It's an expensive school, so most people are from upper economic classes, but Heritage scholarships mean there are some students who aren't well off financially.

Religion is pretty homogenous. Most people are quite conservative Christians, but there is a significant population of people who might identify as Christian but don't make it a very important part of their lives. Unfortunately for me, there are very few people who are both dedicated Christians AND 'liberal' on social beliefs. I don't believe I met more than one or two other self-identifying feminists or gay-rights-supporters while I was there. Religious discussions can get pretty heated, though most people are pretty caring and polite. Misogyny tends to be accepted and 'biblically' sanctioned. Rape jokes are common in some groups. Harassment of couples occurs--3 of my closest friends were repeatedly harassed when with their significant others.
