4 College Junior

Diversity: Students and all people in overall are nice and they accepted the way you are. However, there are people that can be mean because of your way of speaking, but this is not a thing to stop or giving up.

Diversity: Diversity on campus really depends where the location of the campus is. My campus is situated along the border of Mexico, thus having a wider hispanic/ latino racial diversity. Since my campus is not a high end famous expensive school, it is easier for more students to be able to afford tuition with financial help from their families or government.

Diversity: We have a lot of diversity in this school. Merely, because it is connected between the border of Mexico and U.S.

Diversity: I say it's bad because ...in my opinion there isnt true diversity. Most people who are not of Mexican descent are here on scholarship so they're athletes, other than that.......you get the point.

2 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are not a lot of political controversies that I am aware of on campus. Although there are a lot of religious organizations.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Living on the border evokes a lot of differences among students. Diversity is huge, with students from both the United States and Mexico. The collaboration between these two different cultures can cause friction. However, a neutral standing point will often create friendships. Students should immerse themselves into a different world and enjoy a change from the normal routine now and then.

Students from other regions attend school, as well, although it's not a large quantity. Examples of different origins include France, Germany, South Africa, Brazil, and India. El Paso offers students many opportunities to grow and develop into something better. Communicating with individuals from other regions is not hard; everyone is open-minded. Foreign students come over to learn the American lifestyle, and being located on the border definitely offers a whole new perspective. This collaboration of different cultures is fun. Economic status does not create a big gap between students, nor does it create any conflict. A majority of the students comes from a middle-class home.
