3 College Sophomore

Diversity: has improved a lot over the years

2 College Sophomore

Diversity: Although some students may disagree, the demographics here are fairly consistent with the general population of the US, with a slight skew due to the large number of foreign students.

However, the campus is insanely race conscious, with a program called #racematters which covers so called "islamaphobia" and "white privilege". Additionally, one of the professors (in a very unprofessional move) teaches about Black Lives Matters in a class on what should be the Civil War and post reconstruction.

The school is obsessed with making white students feel guilty, which leads to an uncomfortable situation for straight white men who don't hate themselves.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Everyone on campus comes from different backgrounds whether it is be financial, socially, or ethnically. Are campus is very diverse.

3 College Junior

Diversity: We have this thing on campus called the Damietta Center. It's a building, but also more than that. It houses (not physically) all of the diversity clubs on campus. We have an LBGTQIA+ ally group on campus, a gender issues group, a black student union, a group called Asian Students in Action, one called LASSO for Latin American students, and many more. There is great effort by the clubs and by most university personnel to very inclusive. However, it is a private, Catholic university. There are many students who attend that are extremely conservative and often intolerant. There is not as a big a problem with administration, but it does exist.
