5 College Freshman

Diversity: everyone in the school is different and accepts minorities highly.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: LIU Brooklyn is an excellent example of the New York's melting pot. We have students here that have roots from several parts of the world. There are several different languages spoken here, diverse dress styles, and religious opinions. We are always keen to know about one another. This has to be one of my favorite things about LIU.

Diversity: There is a great diversity on campus.

4 College Student

Diversity: Statistically my school has one of the most diverse campuses in the country. There are so many people coming from different backgrounds and religions that it's hard to keep track of. Many people come from Caribbean/Hispanic backgrounds, but it's still pretty extensive. Economically, most are in the lower to middle class range.

4 College Student

Diversity: There are many diverse students on campus. One of my roommates is Korean and the other is Indian, and my previous two were Turkish and Black. I fit in better with my current roommates because our personalities are better matched (we're more quiet and not into parties, smoking, or drinking, whereas my previous roommates enjoyed all of those things). There are also many students here from the UK and I met one who came from Australia, as well as students who come from other states such as me (Texas) and some from North Carolina to California. The religious beliefs are very diverse as well, though I am unsure about political beliefs because I usually avoid that topic. I am aware of a couple who lives on my floor who are both girls and am sure there are others like that, or who are of another sexual orientation. (Unsure of if both of the girls are lesbians or identify as something else.)
