College Senior

Diversity: I am an online student and cannot give an accurate response.

5 College Junior

Diversity: Being a Christian College makes it difficult for one to experience rejection of any kind.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Given that it's a Christian school, most people that attend are, or claim to be, Christians. There are a lot of international students. Political diversity is disappointingly low, however: most people are either Republican or hardcore Republican. There are a few libertarians trying to educate them, though.

College Senior

Diversity: I do not live on campus.

College Sophomore

Diversity: As an online student, I do not come in contact with any other students. Online, everyone is viewed the same, nothing is pronounced or extorted. A person can be free to be themselves and not worry about judgement.
