Diversity: I was very surprised and kind of scared to find out that UP is mostly white people. I have always gone to schools that are extremely diverse, and when I arrived at UP I found out that I was the minority it totally blew my mind. But the reality check, helped me meet wonderful people, who are interested in learning about my culture.

Diversity: Very homogenous in terms of race, ethnicity, economic status, and sexual orientation. Most are fairly wealthy WASPS.
