5 College Sophomore

Diversity: Pace University is one of the most accepting and diverse schools known to man. Everyone is so friendly and so nice. This was one of the reasons why I choose to come here. It doesn't matter what race, religion, sexual orientation you are. Everyone gets along with everyone. We are like one big family. People love you for you and it is almost like a community and everyone is always there to lend you a helping hand. I have met some many great and beautiful people from all types of backgrounds.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Diversity is apparent in this establishment in all categories, especially because the school is placed in the city. Economically, there are different ranges of students, varying between the ones who roll in the dough and the ones who work exceptionally hard to keep their beloved financial aid packages. Even though many people come from different financial backgrounds, people are very respectable of each other. The place is streaming in an array of cultures; many ethnic groups and international students come to Pace for its many majors and minors. Since there's a mixture of cultures, student beliefs are seemingly different, as well. Dissimilar morals and views make the University a more interesting place. Most everyone are liberals, and while there are a few Republicans who squirmed when McCain wasn't elected President, they got over it. As for the diversity in sexuality, many students aren't interested in declaring their sexuality as a label to their identity, but the gay population is quite large and apparent.

Pace University is incredibly filled with open-minded students. A student has to be tolerable if the school has so much inescapable diversity. Racial discrimination is simply not acceptable in this fine establishment. If people are ignorant of someone's background, it's OK to ask about their family's religion and tradition. But, overall, people are respectable with it comes to having different opinions on certain matters. It's definitely all right to agree to disagree.
