3 College Sophomore

Diversity: It's primarily a Dutch heritage school. We do have a lot of international students and other ethnicities for our size though.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: The diversity is fairly homogenous, but the school is working hard to bring more students in to bring more diversity to the college.

3 College Junior

Diversity: This campus is definitely diverse to me, other people may think differently. I could type about all the differences, but that may take a while. Oh. and Northwestern is very dutch.

2 College Freshman

Diversity: Being gay is not really accepted. Being pregnant out of wedlock is NOT tolerated. Anyone pregnant (even if they are married) must live off campus. Not many people are of other races besides white and the campus is very segregated. Most people that attend NWC come from at least a somewhat privileged background. People are assumed to be Christians and professors will not be hired if they are not Christians.

2 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is definitely a majority of white students, but many students are also Hispanic and Asian. There isn't a lot of anything else, though.
