4 College Junior

Diversity: The diversity at my school is beneficial to every student that attends. It ranges from international students from Iraqi to students from all over the United States. Having this much diversity opens everyone who is on campus to new likings, opportunities and a great chance to learn about things they never thought they would. My school also has a big population of students who are gay. Having so many different sexual orientation presence becomes such a norm for everyone that it is not a problem. We learn that people could love who ever they want and there is no problem with it.

5 College Senior

Diversity: People from all walks of life end up at the University of Hartford. I have made great friends from around the country including locations like Chicago, Long Island, Florida, Georgia, Alabama, India, Germany, and more. Ethnic and racial diversity is culture at the U of H. It's something we're proud of and we want to continue to grow. The same goes for diversity in areas like economic background, political and religious belief and sexual orientation. The Uhart community is a body of vastly different people from different places with different ideas, and beliefs and customs and preferences, and that makes us who we are. I learn as much from my piers as I do from my professors. We teach each other about our interests and our passions.

4 College Junior

Diversity: They have clubs for everything on campus. The racial diversity is good, although there are instances where the ethnic groups keep more to themselves. The campus is mostly democratic, although everyone has different opinions on how the government is running these days. The main religious organization is right next to the LGBTQ and Allies support club, and they get along very well together. There is a significant Jewish population on campus too.

4 College Senior

Diversity: Coming from a small country town, I love the diversity I see at University of Hartford. It has really opened my eyes, and I've become friends with a lot of different kinds of people.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: I'm extremely liberal however a lot of my friends are conservative. There's no dividing line and I'll be honest I don't think politics makes a huge difference in friend groups. But you'll see an outpour during election years.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

While the University has a predominately white student body, diversity is not lacking. University of Hartford students come from very different ethnic, economic, religious, and regional backgrounds. The University is home to a variety of students—white, black, Hispanic, Asian, Middle Eastern, Jewish, Catholic, Christian, Muslim, and Hindu. There is also diversity in terms of sexual orientation, and you will find straight, gay, lesbian, and transgendered students here.

Even if two students have something in common, like ethnicity or religious belief, they still have different backgrounds or lifestyles. The students here represent many different states and countries around the world, and the International Center is dedicated to helping and offering support to international students, as well as anyone who wants to study abroad. The diversity of the student population is one of the best things at the University, and it is projected to increase over the years.
