3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Everyone seems to be very Democratic and liberal, and you can be looked down on if you are not.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: The acceptance rate at PLU is approximately 70% which is not too bad honestly. It has a more female dominated demographic but it isn't really that noticeable. Everyone seems to get along to a degree even coming from different backgrounds

4 College Junior

Diversity: There is a good amount of international students, as well as students from many different religious, political and economic backgrounds, and many students identifying with the LGBTQ community.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: This school is defiantly more diverse than my high school but it still is a majority of straight Christian white people.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: There are so many different people on Pacific Lutheran University's campus. People's sexuality range from heterosexual, homosexual, to asexual. There are also many students from around the world with different cultural and religious backgrounds. Even though there's such a diverse community here on campus, everyone is very accepting and open.
