Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Walking around campus, CSUN students will see a variety of different faces from different walks of life. But it's not just ethnicity that varies: Students have a lot of unique interests and political/religious beliefs, too. The University is a huge melting pot and has even been described as a "rainbow" campus—not "rainbow" in an LGBT sense, but in a sense of representing a variety of colors and nationalities (although LGBT students are most definitely represented on campus!).

Most students give CSUN high marks in the area of diversity. This diversity also brings about a sense of welcoming, as there isn't a certain mold that students have to fit in order to be an CSUN student. Also, because the school is a commuter campus, many students have separate lives outside of the University, which also brings some added uniqueness to the table.

Gay Pride
CSUN has a very relaxed vibe. This makes CSUN a very tolerant atmosphere where you will find all types of people comfortable with who they are, including people who are gay, bisexual, transgendered, or just metrosexual. The LGBTA is one organization where people of all different types of sexual preferences congregate. Upon occasion, you might even see a gay marriage taking place on the fields of the campus.
