4 College Junior

Diversity: I have met many people from many different places, for example China, Vietnam, England. My school is very diverse. Despite the fact that is very diverse, people are very friendly and social. So far, I have not had any challenges. I am very accepted here, even though my ethnic background is not that popular.

5 College Junior

Diversity: There are people of all kinds on campus. Everyone is generally accepting, and there are more groups created every day to ensure support of people of every type.

4 College Senior

Diversity: Just as diverse as the city of houston

5 College Freshman

Diversity: Everyone is completely different in all ways and it is just fascinating because I can interact with everyone and learn about the different cultures.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: UH has so many different cultures and beliefs on campus. On the way to class, you can hear three different languages--ones that aren't common to the city. UH is very accepting and inviting and embraces and celebrates students who aren't the norm.
