4 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are many different races around campus. If you ever walk around late at night, you'll hear many people outside discussing their different political views. For most people, you can tell when they have more money than someone else, because they aren't complaining about how much student debt they have. No one is afraid to embrace their sexual orientation. They will walk around hand in hand with their significant other just like everyone else, and most people wouldn't even think twice about it.

4 College Junior

Diversity: In regard to economic background, political beliefs, religion, and sexual orientation, the campus is extremely diverse. You will find all walks of life walking through campus when looking at these properties. However, with racial diversity, it seems that the majority of the students are Caucasian.

You will meet someone from every walk of life at Rowan. Most students are very accepting of one another, and racial slurs and derogatory comments are rare. There are plenty of multicultural organizations like the Black Cultural League or the Asian Cultural Association, which many students join. Like most universities, Rowan has students from outside of the country, which opens the minds of most students and offers a new perspective.

The campus features students from different backgrounds and different social classes, which makes for a giant, semester-long episode of MTV's "The Real World"—when perfect strangers are accepted to a college and find out what happens when people stop being polite and start getting real. One interesting thing about Rowan’s diversity is that the school is in the middle of a conservative neighborhood. While a number of students are liberal, conservatives are here, as well. Both make their presence known in a number of ways, but don’t expect diversity without conflict. Isn’t that what makes college interesting to begin with?
