2 College Sophomore

Diversity: This campus is very white and very Christian. The upside is that Pride is very active here and everyone is accepting. There might not be very many non-white students here, but everyone intermingles. It is not as welcoming if you're not Christian, but it's the South so what do you expect

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

At Georgia College, there seems to be a good representation of all backgrounds, beliefs, and nationalities. The International Education Center on campus advises the International Club, and works with students and faculty to promote international and cross-cultural learning as well as respect for diversity. GCSU also offers the SOAR (Student Oriented Activities and Resources) program which matches minority students with student mentors to help them successfully transition into college.

In terms of actual numbers, though, GCSU doesn't always look that diverse on paper. A majority of students is white and from the state of Georgia. Yet, students are very open to other students' differences through activities like the International Club and other programs.
