Diversity: There's a lot of diversity on campus, but it depends on what major you are in to really notice the diversity.

4 College Senior

Diversity: TSU is a historically black college, so the majority of the students are black. I am a Caucasian student and loved the diversity I felt. Students of all ethnicities were accepted and it was a refreshing feeling. I felt that many of the students were also from the same socioeconomic class. There were many different political and religious beliefs, but I feel that all beliefs should be accepted to create the diverse world we live I'm today!

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

TSU is an HBCU, which makes the dominant ethnic group African American, although TSU is statistically the most ethnically diverse HBCU in the U.S. Some of the students at TSU admit the campus could be more diverse, but the majority feels it is diverse enough. TSU offers a minority scholarship to Caucasians and other minorities in order to help to raise the number of diverse students. There is also a scholarship available for students over 25 years old, which pays for tuition and fees to give the "non-traditional" students a chance to get their education as well. The students at TSU are very tolerant toward one another. Most students respect and befriend the people they meet, and there is generally no animosity between students. Such problems like hate crimes and graffiti do not exist at TSU because the students are more concerned with their social lives and their education. Most students are very pleasant and will smile at you just as you are passing by, although at the start of fall semester everyone seems to be pretty shy and timid. The great thing about TSU is it doesn't take long for everyone to come out of their shell, and it is very easy to make friends. Most of the student body is very open about their views, and this helps to break any uneasiness one may feel the first few weeks. The best thing to do is be yourself and be proud of who you are, and most students will naturally respect you. Also, remember that respect is given as it is received, so always be respectful to those around you, and you will get along with most everyone.
