There are 43 cultural organizations on campus. From Italy to Russia, Ireland to Korea, all of the major countries are covered, and if they’re not, get your friends together and start a new group! The same goes for religious groups. There are 22 religious organizations at UConn, most of which are Christian.
Diversity seems to be prevalent throughout dorm buildings, and the school promotes equality and acceptance of differences. This is obvious with the amount of organizations and events that cultural and religious groups throw. Despite UConn’s efforts to enhance cultural and geographic diversity in recent years, the campus is still predominantly white. This is mostly due to the fact that 67 percent of students are from Connecticut, which as a state, isn’t as diverse as others.
