4 College Freshman

Diversity: This is a very great place, everyone welcomes you and makes you feel right at home. Students are kind and pretty considerate of others.I do not have a hard time doing almost anything because of my race at this campus!There are many different races and religons here, however the ost prominant is white. But from what i have observed everyone gets along fine.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Independent Students – To me there is really not a set ethnicity here. I see a lot of students from overseas which is great because our campus really cares about the people who come here who aren't from the United States. There are even different clubs that suite everybodys needs. Whether you are gay or straight, it doesn't matter here. Whether you like the outdoors or not, it doesn't matter here. The University of the Ozarks definitely encourages students to be who they want to be no matter who they are.
