3 College Senior

Diversity: At the University of Memphis, the campus consists of a very diverse population. In my opinion, white students are the minority on campus.

Diversity: I haven't even started yet and I can already feel a sense of diversity on this campus! Everyone of every race and religious background got along very well!

4 College Freshman

Diversity: The student diversity at the school is at an extreme. There are many cultures and many different religions and values amongst the college. The best part about the diversity of the school is that we are all accepting of one another and try to treat everyone the same.

Diversity: I'VE SEEN THE BEST AND WORST, BUT WE'RE ALL PEOPLE WITH MINDS AND IDEAS TO EXPLORE AND GET TO KNOW
