3 College Senior

Diversity: At Fairfield, most people here are white and rich. There are a few international students and only a few minorities. However, most people accept the minorities. Almost everyone is Catholic and there are mostly conservatives here. Most people are straight, but the school is mostly accepting of people who aren't.
