4 College Sophomore

Diversity: I love that the school draws in Hawaiian and Alaska students. They come from such a different background and put on club events related to that. It adds diversity to the campus that would be otherwise limited. The exchange program is pretty good considering that on each floor of my dorm building were exchange students, it's interesting hearing Japanese on the floor above when visiting. As far as race diversity, there's not much. The school has pretty good sexual orientation tolerance and the gay/straight puts on a ball that is very well attended by most students. Politics and religion have clubs on campus, and invite people in all the time, personally never attended any.

2 College Freshman

Diversity: SOU has a very low amount of the diversity. However the staff as well as the students are very accepting to those of different beliefs, background, religions, etc.

3 College Junior

Diversity: I think they are open to many diverse groups, i think it compares to any other school in the northwest.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: There are a lot of multi-racial students here and we have great resource centers for people of different race and sexual orientation.

4 College Freshman
