2 College Sophomore

Diversity: Sure, we have the varying backgrounds from all over the world here at Hiram. However, there's a few people that just so intolerant to other people's life stories because they come from a privileged lifestyle. good for them, let them stay that way but once you take that handful of people out of your mind, the rest of the community on campus is supportive of each other and are willing to talk and learn about you and how you are as a person. A lot of the time, you can gain a new perspective on life when you can talk through the differences that each person may have for each other.

5 College Senior

Diversity: There is a large abundance of international students at my school so it is very diverse.

4 College Junior

Diversity: Its hard to find someone who has conservative views on topics such as sexuality/gender orientation and the like. Most people accept people for who they are and move on. It does not seem to be something people get hung over on.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Many students come from different countries and different states which means that there's a lot of diversity in terms of race, religion, and sexualities. I have kind of noticed that every kind of person that goes here stays in their own group of people exactly like them and it's a little hard to meet people because of this. It's just more difficult to meet a wide variety of personalities.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: I see people from many different cultures in my classes and when I'm walking around campus. And everyone seems to accept them and include them
