3 College Freshman

Diversity: The school does not promote many diversity events

2 College Senior

Diversity: We are predominately black college with less than 5 whites or other races on campus but they are treated like family, but if you're homosexual you're treated like an outcast by students.

2 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: Rust College is an HBCU, so naturally the majority of the population is African American.There are a few Caucasian students, and a few mixed students. But there are a great number of international students who bring their unique culture to the school.

3 College Junior

Diversity: The campus isn't very diverse, but accepts anyone from any race. It's not a huge campus and because of that it is easier for everyone to get along with each other, despite your race.

4 College Junior

Diversity: Rust College is a historically black school and only black students attend here. We have a few white and hispanic students.

Rust College is a historically black college, so the student body is predominantly black. However, there is a small percentage of Caucasian and Hispanic students that attend the institution. To broaden things up, Rust could use more ethnicity, but that might defeat the purpose of Rust being an HBCU.

Anyone of any race or gender can attend Rust, as there is no discrimination, but most African Americans choose to attend. And in terms of gender, more women than men attend Rust. Overall, though, everyone comes from different backgrounds.
