3 College Freshman

Diversity: The diversity is growing, but it was majority women.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: This school is a liberal arts school in a fairly liberal area. My experience during my previous graduate degree impressed on me a diversity of all sorts of people. I think there is room and acceptance for people of any persuasion.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are a lot of people who have different beliefs on campus and I love seeing them. There are clubs for lack of a better word to describe the groups that gather. There is a catholic, christian, native american, baptist, hispanic, african american groups and so on and so forth. UNCG is a very VERY diverse institution. And I am happy here there are soooo many asians, many of my friends are from european/asian descendents. WE all get along it is amazing. I have not seen a single argument or racial slur on campus yet, I hope to never see one.

3 College Freshman

If you have lived in a small town all of your life, prepare to have your mind blown when you come to UNCG. Expect to have your beliefs and opinions challenged, and don't be surprised if they have been strengthened or even changed when you walk away from the University in four years. This is exactly the experience you are facing when you meet the vast array of people on this campus—all of whom come from different racial, ethnic, religious, political, social, and sexual backgrounds. While it's true that UNCG has a reputation for a large number of LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) students, rest assured that no one will question your orientation based solely on your attendance at the University. All kinds of love and relationships are valued on this campus, which is a perfect example of how diverse it really is.

Whether you are looking for a group of people to fit in with or if you need a political sparring partner to bounce your ideas off of, you will find people to enrich your life at UNCG. Just try not to get too hot-headed if someone takes a strong stance against something you think or agree with—it's bound to happen on a campus such as this.

Gay Pride
UNCG is known as "UNC-Gay" for a reason. Surprisingly, it isn't because of the visibility of the campus LGBT group—which is actually a relatively quiet organization. It is mostly because a large number of students are openly gay.
Political Activity
As a whole, UNCG is more liberal, but all kinds of political affiliations are visible. The College Democrats and the College Republicans are always butting heads at debates and over various projects. Small groups of students may try to hand you a copy of the "Socialist Worker" while you walk down College Avenue. Several students, from liberal to libertarian, have articles published in UNCG's student newspaper, "The Carolinian," arguing their points.
Economic Status
Most students receive some sort of financial aid, and the majority comes from households with an average income. There are some students, though, who walk around in nothing but designer labels, so all kinds of economic backgrounds are represented.
Most Common Religions
Various forms of Christianity are probably the most prominent, but you will meet someone from every faith at UNCG, including atheists/agnostics, Buddhists, Jews, Muslims, and pagans/Wiccans.
Minority Clubs on Campus
UNCG has a club for every minority group imaginable. Whatever your race, religion, or sexual orientation, you can join a group of people with similar characteristics on this campus. Search the UNCG website for a full list of student organizations.
