4 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are people from all over the world with every background imaginable. I often hear Asian students conversing in their own native languages throughout campus (although most of the students are American). The school year has a strong emp is on missions and so cultural diversity is celebrated, not repressed.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Believe it or not, BJU can be described as a huge ethnic melting pot. The media might project BJU as a white-dominated conservative Christian school; however, that projection is just a stereotype. Students come from all over the world to experience the great academic opportunities provided by BJU. The enrollment rate of international, missionary, and out-of-state students is dominant, which helps keep BJU more diverse. BJU supports missionary families, and the children of missionaries tend to complete their degrees at BJU to honor the University’s support. Overall, despite what the media might say, students at BJU are very accepting towards other cultures.

It is true that BJU is a bit politically and religiously affiliated. A great number of people at BJU are Christians and support conservative Republicans. Students tend to be more opinionated about political and religious issues, and sometimes it is overly debated.
