3 College Sophomore

Diversity: The diversity on Savannah State campus is average because of course some people are accepted more than others and there are different ethic/racial groups but it's like everybody sticks with who they are comfortable with.

Diversity: Being that SSU has a large accteptance rate, there are alot of diverse people that go there. Of course the black race is dominant but there are very different people that end up there. SSU is a school that accepts you however you are.

2 College Freshman

Diversity: Gays are somewhat a problem to the overall culture

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Diversity can be best described as showing a great deal of variety. Yet, diversity can also be broken down into many subgroups that consider ethnicity, age, economic status, sexuality, family structure, and major. At Savannah State, since the school is an HBCU, many wouldn't consider SSU to be a diverse school. However, others would disagree because students are accepting of all other racial backgrounds.

Minorities are respected just the same, with color being irrelevant. International students are welcomed with open arms because it's interesting to know someone is not from the United States and decides to study in a country different from his or her own. All in all, whether students are from down the street or across the globe, they are not discriminated due to their culture and/or race.
