3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Western is a diverse school, but it does seem that international students travel together in cliques. People of different religions and ethnicities seem to mesh really well. As far as political affiliation goes, Western is generally a highly liberal school, but there are a strong reserve of conservatives that are faithful to their political views.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Not a lot of students of color or political diversity.

3 College Junior

Diversity: It is not very diverse. And does not accurately represent Washington State's diversity.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Our campus I would say is very diverse. We have students from many different cultures, ethnicities, locations, international places, etc. There are also clubs for students from America and international students to join together for each to learn about each other's culture.

4 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: WWU is very committed to being an all inclusive campus. Our Associated Students sponsors resource centers specifically for different 'minority' groups such as the LGBTQ community and 'ethnic student groups', etc.
