5 College Freshman

Diversity: Philadelphia University poccesses a wide diversity of students. We celebrate and acknowledge just about every religion. During the holiday seasons they set up decorations for each holiday celebrate by the students. The ethnic diversity is large as well, many students come from Europe, the Middle East, Africa and even Asia. Students even come from all over the country with different backgrounds ranging from poor to wealthy and everything in between. The school is very accepting of all types of students even with different religious affiliations and sexual orientations. PhilaU has a variety of clubs to help support the students and there wide variety of affiliations.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are many international students. I would say there aren't many hispanics, but about half and half of Africen-Americans and Caucasian. There are many clubs to teach us about different clubs. There are some very rich students and also a lot of students on a lot of scholarship money. You can't really tell the difference between them unless they flaunt it. I would say a lot of students are very liberal and free-spirited. There are some conservative people, but all around I haven't really heard students speaking about politics. There are mostly straight students but there is a lot of support with the LBGT club. A lot of guys who are in fashion majors are gay. No one is discriminative towards sexual orientation.

3 College Senior

Diversity: sexuality is fine since it is a design/fashion school. However on the negative side, you can tell many people are high maintenance and show off their money. its annoying.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Most of the people here are international students and the majority of citizens are white. Most of them are filthy rich and its pretty easy to tell who they are.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: This campus is a very diverse campus
