3 College Senior

Diversity: Even though we do have a lot of different types of people who come to Eastern, there are sometimes different issues that come up. The positive side effect is that this past year was the best year in everyone getting along and people being allowed to share their opinion.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: I think everyone finds there group and just stick with them, people are accepting here but often i see the same people group of people with the same group.

4 College Senior

Diversity: I think it great diversity for campus. There are people from all over including chicago and even near st louis. There arent as many international people as there is other races.
