3 College Senior

Diversity: SMUMN gets a bad rap for low diversity ratings. It's true, SMUMN is predominantly white. However, I know of programs that are being implemented to change that.

Political beliefs are half and half. I know many republicans and I know many democrats on campus. I would say that liberal notions are more apparent in student life and in classes, but you really find both ends of the spectrum at SMUMN.

I've personally never experienced or have seen any discrimination happen with LGBTQ+ or race at SMUMN, but we are a small campus with low diversity numbers so I don't really know.

Diversity: More diversity is needed, but is also accepted.

Diversity: There is basically no diversity on Saint Mary's campus. There is a little bit, but not a whole lot. The people at there are extremely accepting of anyone and everyone. Even though we are Lasallian school, we are accepting of all religions and will even offer you help in finding a church which fits your domination, and find you transportation if you are in need. Now that's what I call accepting!

Diversity: A school that is dominantly Caucasian however students get along great with all kinds of students no matter the race.

4 College Junior

Diversity: I do feel diversity is strong at Saint Mary's University of Minnesota!
