5 College Freshman

Diversity: A lot of diversity at our school

4 College Freshman

Diversity: There is not much diversity of the campus of USF. We are full of great people who all share similar beliefs in religion. It is a very small campus so getting to know many people is a very easy task.

Diversity: USF I don't feel is a very diverse school. We do have people of different ethnicities, however they tend to stick together. I haven't seen any signs of racism and most people are usually accepting of others. I haven't seen many different political stances and religion either, but that doesn't mean that we aren't accepting of those beliefs.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: USF has a large, overall white population. Although there are plenty of different races and religions, they definitely make up the minority. I believe that although USF isn't an extremely diverse campus, it is extremely accepting to all different backgrounds and beliefs. Even though USF is categorized as a Christian Liberal Arts School. the acceptance and tolerance of other religions and political beliefs is extremely high.

2 College Sophomore

Diversity: There isn't a whole lot of diversity here, mostly because it's a small, private, Christian college in South Dakota. Racial diversity is there, but it's small. Political beliefs, if you're a democrat you usually have to stay silent, because you're the minority. Same if you're anything besides cisgender and heterosexual or believe people who aren't cisgender or heterosexual should have equal rights and protections under the law. A lot of people here are really religious, and they use that to base their discrimination. This annoys me as a christian who wants equal rights for all, but it has strengthened my views and helps you to see other people's viewpoints so you don't live in a bubble full of people only with your view.
