3 College Freshman

Diversity: Diversity is great, but acceptance is different. Our school is currently talking about the LGBTQ community, and many students can see they are treated differently than the rest of us. We have many social work classes on diversity and human interaction, which is beneficial. As for religion, we are a Christian campus, but are open to those whose beliefs are different.

Diversity: At a Christian school, most of the students are affiliated with Christianity. However, there are many kids who are not religious.

Diversity: Eastern is extremely diverse and multicultural. I appreciate that.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is a ton of diversity! There are lots of different races and people from all over the world. Even though Eastern is a Christian college, not everyone is a christian. There are a lot of very liberal people and some conservatives. The professors are also in a wide range of politics and denominations and races. Sexual orientation is more accepted at Eastern than most Christian colleges; people seem more accepting.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: People are very accepting here of all different beliefs, races, backgrounds, and sexual orientations.
