Diversity: Most people are from the Pacific Northwest, but there are a number of people from California and Hawaii as well. Most people are fairly accepting of other religions/cultures/sexual orientations, but unfortunately there is a small (yet vocal) minority who don't have much experience of the real world yet.

Diversity: Whitworth and Spokane are not very diverse but many students come from areas in the country/international that are more diverse so there is a health level of acceptance. There will always be outliers.

4 College Junior

Diversity: Its a christian college so there is sort of a stigma there about being accepting, but even conservative Christians on campus are friendly and accepting to almost everyone. Whitworth is predominantly white and the school tries really hard to change that but the entire Northwest region is pretty white so I don't anticipate Whitworth changing soon.

Diversity: Campus is incredibly diverse. I love the fact that pretty much everyone on campus is very accepting of people who are different, whether religiously, ethnically, socially, politically, etc.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: I think that one of Whitworth's biggest goals is to become more diverse as a student body, but simply because of the fact that it is an expensive private Presbyterian university we're not exactly a melting pot. We are, however, extremely accepting of all backgrounds and have many opportunities to get involved and encourage and celebrate diversity.
