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?
