4 College Senior

Diversity: I do not really pay attention to everyone's differences. I accept people of all kinds. I treat everyone the same so I do not really point out and notice everyone's differences.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: It's really not too much of a problem, because most people are accepting of everyone, however the predominant "look" of someone at Alvernia is a well-off, sporty white girl. But really, there are all types of people, just small groups of them.

4 College Junior

Diversity: This is a catholic school but they are very understanding of differences

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: There's a lot of diversity on my campus and it is a great thing. It's great to see so many people of different ethnicity, sexuality, and religion come together in one place.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Alvernia University is a great campus. It’s atmosphere is among the top I have ever encountered (as a student and visitor). I am extremely proud to call Alvernia home.
