Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The campus is very diverse in most aspects—economically, ethnically, ideologically, politically, and sexually—but certain minorities have a very small representation. For example, you can count the number of Asian students on one hand.

The diversity at Catawba can be compared to many high schools, since the College is the size of the average high school. There is a good balance between Caucasians and African Americans, but other minorities do not have a good representation on campus. There is a great deal of sexual diversity on campus; however, reinforcing stereotypes, most of the homosexual men are in the performing arts, and most of the lesbian women are involved in athletics and still in the closet. Politically and ideologically, there is enough diversity for anyone to find other people like them.

Gay Pride
There is a good amount of sexual diversity on campus, and there is an LGBT organization on campus that just became reactive and is trying to make their presence known around campus. Sexual diversity is accepted for the most part. If someone doesn't accept it, it's usually kept quiet and isn't a big deal. Like any campus, there will be many different views.
Political Activity
There is a Republican Club and a Democrat Club on campus, but neither one ever seems to do much.
Economic Status
We have a wide spectrum of economic statuses here on campus. There is no segregation between different economic levels and really no distinction between students. Almost every student benefits from financial aid, though a few do not qualify for government or school aid because they are very well-off.
Most Common Religions
The College is affiliated with the Church of Christ, but there are not many students that practice the religion. The school is mostly Christian, including a fairly large group of Catholics, but not many others besides that. Organizations on campus include Campus Crusade for Christ, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and Young Life (which is not technically a campus organization, but rather a community one).
Minority Clubs on Campus
There is a diversity club that helps to promote diversity and sponsors campus events every year, including events for Black History Month.
