5 College Sophomore

Diversity: Loyola University New Orleans treasures diversity, providing equal treatment for all. We all learn from the diversity of each other, whether we are international students, richer students, poorer students, liberal students, conservative students, or any particular religion. We accept one another and respect each other's political standing and beliefs.

Diversity: Loyola offers a great deal of diversity. It is great how everyone comes together as a community despite diversity.

Diversity: I'm really happy with Loyola's diversity. I have many friends from different countries and from many different backgrounds. There are also a lot of LGBT students here, which adds to the diversity.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: We actually talk about topics dealing with social acceptance in class.

Gay Pride
Loyola has a group called QSSA (Queer-Straight Student Alliance) that focuses on making the student body aware of current issues in the LGBT community.
Political Activity
The only politics that are noticed by all students is the Student Government Association. As far as politics outside of Loyola, students discuss various issues and ideas in the classroom and out.
Economic Status
Unless a student volunteers this information or makes it blatantly obvious, no one would ever know about a particular student's economically background. There is an eclectic mix of students from different backgrounds, but no one is really aware of how different these backgrounds are from student to student.
Minority Clubs on Campus
The Black Student Union (BSU) is visible on campus and helps with getting Dillard University, Xavier University, and Tulane University to work with Loyola for the Martin Luther King Jr. Week of Peace on all the campuses. The International Student Association (ISA) helps international students ease into life at Loyola. The Muslim Students Association (MSA) promotes inter-religious dialogue among the Loyola student body. The Wolf Pack Diversity Team is made up of students from various backgrounds, and they help other diversity programs with events.
