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.
