4 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are people with different background.

3 College Junior

Diversity: Not very diverse overall. I am from North Dakota, so for me I think it is diverse. Compared to big schools, not really, but for a school of our size its pretty good!

1 College Sophomore

Diversity: Caucasians everywhere. Not saying that it is bad, just the truth. Although we have students from various backgrounds, it will be very difficult because most students came from the Midwest. They're not use to it. There's a lot of segregation issues (other than the obvious gender thing since we all live on two different campuses) that will agitate you.

Diversity: You can see the diversity here is not that big of a group, since the minority here is a small proportion. On the other hand, the non-minority students are well behaved towards the minorities and also try to take care of us when we need help.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

When prospective students visit CSB/SJU, they recognize the diversity on both campuses. The campuses are very open to any student who wishes to attend the institution. CSB and SJU take pride in the fact that many of their students come from another state or even another country. There are many students from different social backgrounds, cultures, religions, and sexual orientations that attend the schools, and students are always accepting of each other in any circumstance.

CSB and SJU are very proud of their diversity because it shows that students accept each other, learn from them, friend them, and they become a part of the schools' traditions. Students try to learn from the Benedictine values and pass them on. CSB and SJU students love that the school is diverse, and they plan to continue to pursue uniqueness for years to come.

Gay Pride
There is a split attitude on the gay and lesbian community. However, students do not discriminate; they treat everyone equal, no matter what they believe in. Students have a club on campus called PRiSM (People Representing the Sexual Minority), and they try to instill information within the college community about LGBT issues and try to help those people become more accepted on campus.
Political Activity
Students are split on both sides. There are Democrat and Republican organizations; however, it is entirely up to the student if he or she wants to join these particular clubs. There are those students who participate in political activity, and there are many who do not.
Economic Status
The school varies on this particular topic. CSB and SJU have students from the poor to the upper-class range when it comes to economic statuses. Many students benefit from financial aid. It is very helpful for many students. Overall, the schools do not separate people based on economic class; people treat each other with the same respect-no matter what.
Most Common Religions
There is a strong majority of students who are Catholic. But there are also many students who practice their own religions. There is no separation based on religion; everyone is accepted for what they believe in. There are two clubs on campus that seem to be pretty popular among students: Campus Ministry and Praise in the Pub.
Minority Clubs on Campus
On CSB and SJU campuses, students try their very best to get everyone involved. There isn't just one particular minority group that stands out, though. There are so many to choose from, and so many students support these clubs, whether or not they are a minority. The students who are in the clubs are active on campus with continuous promotions of the club through local parties or gatherings! These organizations not only add diversity, but they also make students culturally aware of the world around them. It is a growing aspect of the community that students become global citizens, which is why they accept as much culture as possible.
