5 College Junior

Diversity: There are groups for LGBT, and many different ethnicities on campus. I think they do a good job of helping everyone find a group to support them and understand these individuals.

MSUM has a fairly large population of international students. However, the fact remains that most students at MSUM come from small, predominately white towns. This results in a small percentage of MSUM students being narrow-minded when it comes to minorities.

MSUM offers several different organizations and clubs that deal with diversity to help combat ignorance, though, and the ignorant students are certainly in the minority at MSUM. Students from all backgrounds are generally welcomed with open arms by everyone.

Gay Pride
GLBT has a very active presence on campus. There are many different organizations that exist to provide entertainment, outings, workshops, and lectures to the GLBT population. The Gay-Straight Alliance is very active.
Political Activity
MSUM is a liberal arts college, so the majority of the student body tends to lean to the left. There is a very active College Republicans organization though. The College Democrats and College Republicans often bring in speakers and presenters to talk about the issues of the day. They also encourage voting in local elections by offering rides to the voting station and having candidates come to speak.
Economic Status
There are students from every walk of life at MSUM. Some students' parents are paying for their educations, while other students are working two jobs to get through college. Not many scholarships are offered at MSUM, but some students have received them. The only thing that's certain is that people from every class get along and become friends.
Most Common Religions
Being in the heart of the Midwest, the most common religion is Christianity. There are many different organizations that celebrate it. With that being said, MSUM is pretty open to other religions too, and all religions are free to start their own organizations and practice their faith on campus.
Minority Clubs on Campus
There are many clubs dedicated just to minorities. Essentially all ethnicities, sexes, religions, and sexual preferences are covered. Most regions represented by international students have their own clubs, such as the Japan Club or Organizacion Latina America.
