Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Queens College is one of the most diverse campuses in the country. There are various arrays of ethnic, religious, racial, and cultural backgrounds, and whites are considered the minority. QC tries to create an atmosphere in which students are given the opportunity to interact with those who are different. The campus recently established the Center for Ethnic, Racial, and Religious Understanding to encourage the unity of students.

The economic status, ethnic heritage, political affiliation, religious background, and sexual orientation of students on campus vary, and people are often very accepting of those who are different. Students enjoy interacting with those from different backgrounds in classes, through campus organizations and events, and through unofficial activities. The main political groups on campus consist of United People, Democratic Student Alliance, and a few other independent parties. These organizations mainly call for improving similar issues on campus and encourage students of different backgrounds to be involved in these parites, with the overall goal of creating a positive change.
