1 College Junior

Diversity: If you're not WHITE CHRISTIAN who intends to join the GREEK LIFE, do not even think about attending Mizzou. 75-90% of the campus ( including the FACULTY and STAFF) are NARROW-MINDED, XENOPHOBIC, IGNORANT RACISTS.

4 College Junior

Diversity: There are a lot of students from different races, genders, religions, and sexualities which is great for a large university. There is a small amount of rudeness towards others mainly because the school attracts students who have never met someone outside their race before.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: It is a very diverse campus. The students are very accepting of these differences.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

There is a lot of diversity on campus. People come from all over the country to attend Mizzou's prestigious journalism program, and with that, the University gets a lot of people from different races, economic statuses, and religious backgrounds.

Everyone seems to be treated well on campus. The University has an LGBT group as well as religiously affiliated groups. International students are very prominent, as well. Usually, international students stay on campus and live in the same dorm, but they assimilate well into campus life and the downtown social scene. Overall, students are tolerant and accepting of others' views, religions, races, and sexual preferences.

Gay Pride
The Board of Curators recently added sexual orientation to their non-discrimination policy. Widespread hate crimes, intimidation, and violence against gays have never been reported.
Political Activity
There are political clubs for any political leaning, but some are more active than others. The College Republicans attract big-name speakers to lecture, while the College Democrats are kind of in a rut. There are also clubs available for Libertarian or Green Party-leaning students (sorry, no Reform Party club yet). Left-of-center groups attract a lot of attention with demonstrations and publicity stunts once in a while, like when a new war breaks out.
Economic Status
Since the majority of students who come to Mizzou is from the state of Missouri, an economically diverse state, there is a rather economically diverse student body. There are a lot of students who come from the St. Louis and Kansas City suburbs, as well as people who have a more modest upbringing in rural parts of the state.
Most Common Religions
Christianity is the most prominent religion at Mizzou.
Minority Clubs on Campus
Legion of Black Collegians is the most active club for African Americans on campus. They have a lot of events and activities for black students on campus.
