There is a lot of diversity on our small campus! People from all countries come here to go to school, and they are accepted by the other students, no questions asked. Since the people are from all over, there are many different races with their own religions, but no one acts differently toward either of those. It is pretty widely accepted that some people here have different sexual orientations than normal, and nobody i am around really talks about politics, but the economic background is definitely varied but causes no issues or challenges.

Ada is a great town with an even better college! They have a wildlife park within walking distance of the campus, it has a lake, and is extremely beautiful year round! It also has an amazing outdoor amphitheater that hosts some of the plays put on by different organizations from all around! iThere are multiple 5k's, marathons, and great sporting events year-round. The Chickasaw nation puts on a lot of events. The students are always treated with respect by all of the companies and local people, it's really great!

All I had to do was apply, get accepted, fill out a lot of paperwork and send it back, then come to enroll and attend my classes! My advisor was absent during enrollment, so I was advised by someone who mislead me and chose the incorrect major, but I fixed it once school started. There is nothing weird about the application process really, just make sure you bring your official/final college transcript if you were concurrently enrolled in high school!
