3 College Freshman

Diversity: many minorities so you if youre not used to coming from that kind of high school it will be a big culture shock

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Pretty good diversity....but there are two groups that stand out. A lot of rich white kids and many Jewish people. This campus is 40% Jewish....and many of them are extremely involved in their religion.

5 College Senior

Diversity: I came to this University because of the diversity I saw when I came to visit campus. There are students from all over the world and country that go here. All of these students have different interest, majors, and beliefs. Surprisingly, our school does a great job of welcoming a variety of students on to campus and meeting their needs. We have many clubs and organizations that address the diversity on campus and are always welcoming students that are different from what they are promoting.

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.
