With the school being a women's college, one might think that Cedar Crest isn't a particularly diverse community. But the College community is made up of women from many different geographic, racial, and social backgrounds. One of the great things about Cedar Crest is that no one feels pressured to fit in because there isn't one characteristic that describes students at the College.
There are liberal students, conservative students, and students who fall somewhere in the middle. Some students are of Hispanic descent, some are African American, and others are international students traveling to Cedar Crest from countries all over the world. Some students are straight, some are lesbian, and some are bisexual. There are students who love soccer, Harry Potter, biochemistry, or English literature. Cedar Crest encourages diversity throughout the student body, and the one thing that all students agree on is that Cedar Crest is a very accepting place. Cedar Crest also encourages diversity in terms of age. The College strongly supports its nontraditional students, and the presence of women beyond the stereotypical college age is a reminder that college is a place where students can learn just as much from each other as they can from their professors.
