Diversity: The school is very diverse

5 College Senior

Diversity: As a Jew, they are very helpful with allowances for Jewish Holidays. There have been Anti-Semitic comments made at different school functions, that make me feel a little out of place> Regarding this last comment. Karen Gould, has been kind to send out a letter stating that it is "abhorrent and will not be tolerated". (I think these were her words)

5 College Senior

Diversity: Brooklyn College has to be the most diverse university in all of New York, not only having different ethnic backgrounds from Indians, Russians, Chinese, African-Americans but many religious backgrounds as well. I admire this institution that accepts all these different backgrounds and advises students to do the same. Allowing the development of many student organizations based on diversity, in which many other cultures and background can attend these organization programs and learn about them as well.
