3 College Freshman

Diversity: It seems to me that we have a lot of international/study abroad students which I think is a great opportunity to learn about other cultures.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: We have people of all kinds of different backgrounds.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Not really diverse at all

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: I am a minority myself and it is hard at times just because I have never been to a school with such little diversity. At times I do feel myself as if I am in a little bubble but my friends and professors remind me how great campus really is. I do wish there was more diversity on campus though.

Mount Union tries hard to promote diversity on campus, and in some areas, the University is very successful. Most students are of European heritage, but other ethnicities are present and Mount Union has a relatively large population of international and study abroad students from countries all over the world. It's a private school, but students from many different economic levels are able to attend thanks to financial aid packages and scholarships.

The campus also has a good mix of political views; most students classify themselves as moderates, but there are a good number who fall to the right or left. Mount Union is less diverse in areas like sexual orientation and religious beliefs. Many students who fall into minority categories tend to isolate themselves with others like them, but most are friendly and will branch out if the opportunity arises. While some intolerance is present, most Mount Union students are very accepting of those who are different from themselves, and many wish that the student body would integrate itself more than it does.

Gay Pride
GLBT students at Mount find themselves generally accepted, but instances of intolerance do happen. Fortunately, the Gay Straight Alliance is fairly active on campus and provides a network of support for students of all sexual orientations.
Political Activity
Interestingly, although most Mount students classify themselves as moderate or conservative, they see their campus as being mostly moderate or liberal as a whole. Political organizations exist for both sides of the spectrum in the form of the College Democrats and College Republicans. These groups are most visible around election time, when you'll find them staging debates or passing out voter registration papers in the campus center.
Economic Status
Almost all students at Mount Union receive some form of financial aid, and the campus is very diverse in terms of economic status. However, students are very willing to mix with people of different economic backgrounds. Acceptance doesn't seem to be an issue here.
Most Common Religions
Mount Union is affiliated with the United Methodist Church, and many students practice some form of Christianity. Students can attend Methodist services and Catholic Mass each Sunday in Dewald Chapel on campus. Campus Crusade for Christ (CRU) is the most visible Christian group on campus, but there are a good number of others, as well. Other faiths like Judaism and Buddhism are present, but tend to fly under the radar.
Minority Clubs on Campus
Mount has several active organizations dedicated to minority groups. The Black Student Union (BSU) promotes positive interaction among students of color and all races. The Association of International Students (AIS) aims to bring together international and American students. The Association of Women Students (AWS) focuses on empowering female students of all backgrounds. Aside from these, there are other active organizations devoted to religious faiths, political views, and other types of diversity on campus.
Did You Know?
Mount Union's student body includes enrolled students from 28 states and 18 countries.
