3 College Sophomore

Diversity: The diversity is good at my school judging it on the size and how many students we hold.

4 College Junior

Diversity: There seems to be a good mix of diversity. i am a grad student and go to school at night and there seems to be a good number of us "adults" in the classes along with the younger students who are doing a five year program.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: A School of Acceptance – Thomas College is a college where you will see a lot of different types of people, all who are friendly and accepted.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: All Over the World – My freshman year, there were more people from Bermuda than my hometown, which is just an hour away. Asians, Swedish, Bermudan, Austrailian, British, we got maad diversity. I'd say there are as many black students as white, as well

Diversity: Where in the World – There are so many people from other states and countries that all go to Thomas College. Also a variety of religions are brought together on one campus! It is really not a huge deal at Thomas where people are from, what religion they are or if they belong to the LGBT community. People seem to just fit in with everyone else. It is really an open and accepting college.

For a small school, there is a very diverse group of students attending this college. The best part about having such a diverse community is learning new things about different cultures, languages, and traditions from around the world. Thomas has students from different countries, like England and Australia, as well as big cities, such as Boston.

Things such as racism and discrimination are not huge issues here, but awareness of these issues is very important to the students. Overall, the mix of the cultures at Thomas has only brought the student body closer together as a community.
