Obviously, Alverno is not gender diverse, but there are students from every socioeconomic status, religious background, and section of the world. Over the years, Alverno has hosted students from Jamaica, Mexico, Korea, and Ireland. Even though Alverno is a Catholic college, there are 19 other religions present and represented on campus. Most programs are not strictly Catholic, and Campus Ministry provides services in which all students can relate.
Students at Alverno are also from various age groups and a large percentage are commuters, of which many are nontraditional, meaning that they did not come directly from high school to college. Many of these students have families and partners, and offer different perspectives from that of an 18-year-old. Students who are part of the Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) community at Alverno are visible on campus through the programs and events they plan.
