Diversity: There are ethnic or racial challenges on campus. No race or ethnicity is excluded on campus. Everyone is accepted and there is always an event for every ethnicity on campus

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: i am open about my sexual orientation being a lesbian. I have not found anything on campus degrading anyone who is open about who they are because we are a women's college therefore we are more comfortable about being open and not receiving negative comments. The professors participate in a lot of activities that the SOULs group (students out understanding and learning) which is our LGBT group when we do things. We have safe zones posted in most classrooms to prevent being targeted. Our student life people are amazing and help whenever they can. We have started a Safe house living quarters for students who are out and want to live with other students like themselves as well as students who are supporting their friends after going through a special application process to live in this house.
