2 College Sophomore

Diversity: If you're not liberal everyone thinks you're mean.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Lots of different people and there is no major beleif or religioun

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are many students in MSU, Mankato, however I feel as if the University is not a whole. There are still cliques between the minorities and majorities. For example, in most organizations there were not many diverse students. In honor organizations, majority of the students were Caucasians. It could be the case that these students achieved better grades but if the organization board members interacted more towards the minorities, then the minority students would probably become more involved.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: On campus we have a large range of diversity in ethnicity, religion, and culture. Though my campus is generally accepting of all backgrounds, some issues in regards to diversity may be challenges in academic material, especially for students whom have an international background.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: We have a lot of events to create awareness. I work for the Institutional diversity office and our goal is to promote diversity
