3 College Junior

Diversity: In terms of race, we are a predominantly white campus. However, if you look closely, there are other aspects that make us diverse. For example, I am a part of a LGBT group on campus and we have other groups such as the Hispanic Culture Society.

3 College Student

Diversity: there is some diversity on campus and most people accept it.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Not racially diverse, but a rather large LGBT community. They're not flagrant about it, but its very VERY easy to tell who is in it and its rather mainstream around here. Calling things "gay" is looked down upon.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: We are predominately white, but diversity is still a part of campus. I have a lot of friends from many different backgrounds and really enjoy learning a lot about their backgrounds. The University puts a lot emphasis on embracing diversity, so even though the ratio is not as diverse as other schools, it is still emphasized.

2 College Sophomore

Diversity: Campus is incredibly homogenous. There is also a small, but noticeable existence of racism and homophobia.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The diversity at Quinnipiac University seems to be one of the school's least favorable aspects. Although the University continues to make diverse recruiting strides, the main ethnicity at Quinnipiac remains Caucasian. Quinnipiac also has a fairly obvious gender difference. Sixty percent of students attending the school are female while only 40 percent are male. The majority of students resides in the New England and Tri-State areas. The largest state representation at Quinnipiac is New York.

The Office of Multicultural Affairs aims to maintain a campus community where the needs of a diverse student body are addressed and where uniqueness is embraced, celebrated, and advanced. However, despite embracing diversity, the stereotype around campus is that there is a typical "Quinnipiac girl." This girl resides in either New York or New Jersey, wears Ugg boots and a North Face jacket, and usually drives a nice car. Truth be told, in the winter, you can see many different versions of this "Quinnipiac girl" every day.
