4 College Sophomore

Diversity: The diveristy around The University of Texas at El Paso is very tolerate, and some people are very conservative while others are more liberal. in school everyone has their own thing going on around classes, if you belong to a certain organization nobody tells you anything. if you want to be part of a gay/lesbian organization people are very respectful over that. There are also religious groups who are more conservative. Over all diversity around campus is very good, people accept other people they way the are, of course we all face with daily challanges but at the end of the we all are one whole community fighting for the same reason.

Living on the border evokes a lot of differences among students. Diversity is huge, with students from both the United States and Mexico. The collaboration between these two different cultures can cause friction. However, a neutral standing point will often create friendships. Students should immerse themselves into a different world and enjoy a change from the normal routine now and then.

Students from other regions attend school, as well, although it's not a large quantity. Examples of different origins include France, Germany, South Africa, Brazil, and India. El Paso offers students many opportunities to grow and develop into something better. Communicating with individuals from other regions is not hard; everyone is open-minded. Foreign students come over to learn the American lifestyle, and being located on the border definitely offers a whole new perspective. This collaboration of different cultures is fun. Economic status does not create a big gap between students, nor does it create any conflict. A majority of the students comes from a middle-class home.
