3 College Junior

Diversity: Diversity on campus is accepted and loved, people are very tolerant.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: The school is very up north in Wisconsin so there isn't a lot of diversity to begin with. That fact, I believe, makes it harder to attract those from other ethnic/racial backgrounds. There is a large and thriving LGBT community on campus and while the community is largely liberal and of the middle/upper middle class, we have students with a variety of different beliefs and economic backgrounds.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Northland is a diverse campus in many ways (religion and sexual orientation). Most students are white though and pretty liberal. Over 40% of our students receive Pell Grants, which is much higher than Wisconsin state universities (around 17%), so we do have significant economic diversity. Northland also offers a Native American Studies programs which will hopefully increase the diversity on campus within a few years.

5 College Senior

Diversity: The people on campus are really easy-going and they don't really exclude anyone. The majority of students aren't judgemental or rude.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: The college focuses on the enviorment and sustainability. Which in my eyes seems very liberal. The college ethnicity is mostly white. With a handful hispanic, african american, international students. Just like any other college, there are gays/lesbians at Northland. There is an alliance group offered at the school that students can be a part of.
