4 College Junior

Diversity: there are many different people from all kinds of situations. There are many different ethnic groups that are represented at san jose, also many people have different gender identifications. It is a very diverse campus with everyone you could possibly think of

4 College Junior

Diversity: Everyone seems to get along, I have never heard so far where students don't get along with another group of individuals. Except whenever the people who oppose abortion (and these people aren't students). Those people are assholes! There have been times where they make the females feel bad and I have seen a couple of them crying.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: There is a lot of diversity in this campus, but it is noticeably predominated by Caucasian and Asian people. There are many other ethnicity and cultures that can be seen on campus like African Americans, Sihk, Indians, Samoans, and many more.
