Diversity: because of the WUE program

especially from Hawaii

5 College Freshman

Diversity: SOU was on the list of colleges that accepts not only various sexual orientations, but also all gender identities, which is a very positive aspect. Dorm rooms are divided by gender preference (you can request a single-gender room, such as two females, or you can opt into the female/male/other dorm rooms). There were not that many minorities on campus so racial diversity wasn't major, but overall the campus has amazing acceptance.

Diversity: SOU is a very diversity school. They accept everybody.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: I love that the school draws in Hawaiian and Alaska students. They come from such a different background and put on club events related to that. It adds diversity to the campus that would be otherwise limited. The exchange program is pretty good considering that on each floor of my dorm building were exchange students, it's interesting hearing Japanese on the floor above when visiting. As far as race diversity, there's not much. The school has pretty good sexual orientation tolerance and the gay/straight puts on a ball that is very well attended by most students. Politics and religion have clubs on campus, and invite people in all the time, personally never attended any.
