2 College Junior

Diversity: The school is very homogenous

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Anderson is very accepting of people who are different than the average student. We have plenty of students of different races and a small LGBT population, and I've never seen these people treated any differently.

3 College Junior

4 College Senior

Diversity: We have a diverse group of students as far as ethnicities…we have many students that come from different countries to study and play sports at Anderson. Our students are accepting of those who come from different backgrounds, challenges, beliefs, etc. Keep in mind, this is college…everyone is soo different! Its not really like high school where you've all grown up in the same town. You can find plenty of people who identify with you and accept you here at AU.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is nothing super diverse, but when there are international students and students of other ethnicities they are welcomed with open arms.
