College Senior

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: For being a catholic school there is a lot of diversity in many different aspects as there are quite a few international students with different religions and cultural backgrounds. The school if very open about embracing diversity and I really like that. I get to meet so many different people.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: This school takes away all of the stereotypes, discrimination, cliques, unjust actions that many high school's are known for. Students of all kinds of backgrounds get together and make friends whether through shared classes, clubs, or saying "Hello". There are a few people who are strongly opinionated, and have their own ideas to share about religion, economic status, and so on. It's really refreshing and interesting meeting all sorts of people here. I don't see a problem in the slightest.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

UIW has a very diverse population, although the majority tends to be of Hispanic descent. There are many students from different cultures, and you will see many foreign students from places like Asia and the Middle East. As you walk around campus, you will most likely hear different languages being spoken. UIW is very good on keeping the campus diverse, with incoming international students every semester.

UIW is very welcoming to all students, regardless of color, race, sex (even though there are more women than men), economic status, or sexual orientation. Although UIW is a Catholic-based university, other religions are seen among the student population. It does not matter whether you are paying for school thanks to scholarships and grants, your parents, or a combination of both because in the end, students are admitted based on their academic merit. Overall, the student population tends to be open-minded.

Gay Pride
Stand out, a relatively new student organization, is the official "gay" club at UIW. For the most part, students are accepting of gays, although there are always the few that are not very supporting. As a Catholic university, UIW is pretty good about welcoming these individuals into UIW.
Political Activity
The student body is mostly moderate-not too conservative but not too liberal.
Economic Status
There is a mixture of everything: Students who attend UIW thanks to scholarships and grants, and there are also those whose parents are blessed enough to be able to pay for their college education. Regardless of where you may stand, there is no segregation, and every one gets along with each other.
Most Common Religions
UIW is a private Catholic school, so Catholicism is a very common religion among students. As a result, there are certain organizations that are religiously affiliated, such as prayer groups.
Minority Clubs on Campus
Here at UIW, there is a variety of multicultural clubs, such as the Hispanic Latino Association and the International Student Association, just to name a few. Many of these clubs and associations do a lot of community service work.
