3 College Freshman

Diversity: There is not much diversity, race-wise, which is kind of sad but I like that western partners with Japanese schools to bring students from there to here. I wish it was more diverse though.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Western is a diverse school, but it does seem that international students travel together in cliques. People of different religions and ethnicities seem to mesh really well. As far as political affiliation goes, Western is generally a highly liberal school, but there are a strong reserve of conservatives that are faithful to their political views.

Diversity: It is not very diverse. And does not accurately represent Washington State's diversity.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Our campus I would say is very diverse. We have students from many different cultures, ethnicities, locations, international places, etc. There are also clubs for students from America and international students to join together for each to learn about each other's culture.
