Diversity: There are mainly white people here. A few blacks, a few Asians. But that's it.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: While everyone is very accepting the school is mostly made up of white people with few other minorities racially/ethnically.

3 College Senior

Diversity: There are a variety of people here. However, with the youth college program, a lot of milledgeville locals are around. With this, they think it is their race that the students are judging, but it is there ACTIONS and DISRESPECT they give the student when they come to campus. Unfortunately, it looks like racial discrimination because most of the youth program are African American.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Although the campus is not that diverse, people are still very accepting of different ethnic cultures, backgrounds, religions, and/or sexual orientations. Everyone is very respectful of each other and are open-minded when it comes to people of different cultures and religions.

Diversity: I am Jewish myself and I have met some other Jewish people as well! It's cool to see. I am also very non-discriminatory so I do not pay much attention to racial, religious and gender diversity because it does not matter to me. As long as you're a good person that is all that matters.

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.
