4 College Freshman

Diversity: People are individuals but have things in common. Religion makes it hard to be a minority.

1 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: When they say this campus is "diverse" they mean that there are all different types of white, Protestant Christian denominations represented here! It's among the worst when it comes to racial diversity (blacks have a much lower graduation rate than whites). If you are LGBT you better keep quiet because if you come out, people will not want to be your roommate and they will tell you you don't belong at Olivet.

2 College Junior

Diversity: Not much ethnic or racial diversity. Anyone who thinks differently gets sort of singled out and made to feel like they are doing something wrong or un Christian because they don't fall into the "Nazerene" label.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Being a Hispanic myself, I feel very accepted. I have not seen any racism acts. Their is a small scale of ethic/racial diversity, but it is still present. Political beliefs lean towards conservative more.

Diversity: The diversity on campus towards religion, race, and political beliefs are widely accepted. No one really judges anyone due to those factors.
