Diversity: Ud is the whitest place in the world and there is no diversity unless you are an athlete living on north campus. The University makes very little effort to be inclusive and as a multiracial person I feel completely underrepresented not only in the student body but also in the faculty. The only people of color are those who work at the school in service and janitor jobs and many of the white students have never even been friends with a black or latino person. I hear racist comments everyday and can walk past hundreds of people without seeing someone who looks like me. A lot of the international Asian students keep to themselves and people are rude and resentful toward them because of it. The Greek culture is prevalent and honestly most of the campus walks around like clones. You can't tell one sorority sister from the next and every frat guy dresses the same. I am not saying that every white person at the school is racist, but it often feels that way. If you value individuality and creativity this is not the place for you. If you take any sort of pride in your ethnicity and culture or are looking for an accepting community do not go to UD.

Diversity: Not extremely diverse, but you can find it if you want it.

Diversity: This campus is not as diverse as it brags to be. Yes, every minority and subgroup is represented on campus. However, most of the students look alike, and come from similar backgrounds. The straight, white, upper-middle class students cover about two-thirds of the student body. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, if diversity isn't a big deal to you. There are some closed-minded individuals on campus, but there are also a lot of open-minded, tolerant people.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The UD campus is mainly devoid of diversity in the undergraduate population. Those minority groups that do exist generally find each other and develop their own communities that drift in and out of interaction with the rest of the student population. They form their own clubs and organizations and assert their unique voice by coming together. Sometimes they even get through to the rest of the campus.

Some people complain that there are unfair housing tactics that relegate certain minority groups to the same area of campus housing, but the University has denied that this is so and claims that minority students generally ask to live together. UD does try hard to attract more minority students, but they find themselves with the problem that they cannot attract minority students to a campus that has so little diversity already present.

The most popular religion is Christianity. There is a strong minority following that is quite active in Christian-based clubs.
Minority Clubs on Campus
