3 College Senior

Diversity: Diversity needs a lot of work, but mostly in the area of race and religion

4 College Junior

Diversity: All I can say, at the risk of being vague, is that I've met people from many different backgrounds. The school is predominantly white, but there is diversity and the intercultural society can help you to connect with people with a similar background if you need. Despite the clear racial majority, the religious, economic, sexual orient, political background vary pretty consistently.

3 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: There's quite a bit of diversity, but not as much as you would think.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Asheville is very accepting toward everyone.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: I come from a predominantly white state, so to me UNCA appears incredibly diverse.

Apparantly this isn't really the case
