4 College Freshman

Diversity: It's a Christian Baptist college. People who go here are here are usually assumed to be associated with that. However, I've run into people with a lot of different believes and backgrounds. They're here, they seem fine. There's enough ethnic/racial diversity for me, as a Hispanic, not to feel like a minority. The thing about CBU is that they're geared towards making us one group, one people, one university. The definition of university is unity within diversity, and I think they do a good job with that. I'll be honest and say there are a lot of white people, but not the stuck-up irritating racial kind. Everyone I've met has been very kind and welcoming. Like I said, I do not feel like a minority even though I am very well a minority.

The International Center does a really great job of recognizing different nationalities too and incorporating races and ethnicity through campus events like Chinese New Year and a Middle Eastern color festival.

The only thing is sexuality. Even though I know that other sexualities are loved and welcomed, I've never seen anyone LGBT.

Diversity: Even though this is a university with Baptist roots, most students do not. In fact, this school welcomes ALL beliefs, races, etc. And it shows.
