I don't see no Indians like on TV I thought US have Indians but no only Indians are in IT they always study all the time and help fix my computer. Sandeep and Rajiv can fix any computer but I can't understand anything they say.

Diversity: Mostly blacks and Hispanics, Christians and Muslims. You shouldn't expect to get any sort of discrimination unless you are maybe a devil-worshiper or awkward-looking.

The University of the District of Columbia is a historically black university and it started out as an all-girls school, so a large portion of the student body is black women. However, the students at UDC are very diverse since many of them or their parents were not born in the United States. English is not the first language for many of the students, and a large percentage are first-generation college students.

The student body represents countries in Africa, Asia, South America, Central America, the Middle East, and Europe. There is also a wide range in the students’ beliefs and preferences.
