3 College Sophomore

Diversity: We are not the most diverse.

3 College Senior

Diversity: We have many ethnicities here and everyone is welcoming.

3 College Junior

Diversity: Going to a small, private university in Rocklin doesn't give you a whole lot of diversity the ethnic and racial areas. But I think that as the school grows bigger in students, the ethnic diversity will grow bigger. Economic diversity is all across the board. You have students there who come from very wealthy backgrounds, and people who are struggling to make sure they have enough money to get meals every day. And of course you have the people in the middle who don't have a ton of money, but have enough to not worry to much about food and other necessities. Political beliefs on campus are not the most diverse, but people express their opinions on things and you can tell that people feel different about politics. William Jessup is a private Christian University and they hold up their beliefs and if you get into the college, you should be accepting of what they believe. They give you a paper and tell you what they expect out of you. People their are mainly Christian in some form or another. Sexual orientation area is not very diverse at all. Very few people are lesbian/gay.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

While most students at William Jessup tend to hold similar religious beliefs, diversity in general is accepted on campus. While each student holds his own view on "hot topics," most find that this alone does not cause any difficulty or judgment from others. There are several groups and clubs that students can find acceptance in, and the school itself strives to incorporate more celebration of diversity into the daily lives of the students.

Even though William Jessup may have ways to go in order to truly accept diversity in all areas of life, it is obvious through the attitudes of the students and the events that have occurred throughout the year, that the campus is continually working hard to put its words into action and really become a place where everyone feels at home.

Gay Pride
Due to the Christian foundation of William Jessup, most students find the issue of gay pride to be an undiscussed matter. Students neither support nor condemn the sexual orientation, nor any other alternative lifestyles on campus grounds.
Political Activity
Most of the public policy majors tend to lean toward the Republican side, though all parties are represented in some way. There is also a Republican party club where students can talk about political issues and voice their opinions.
Economic Status
Around 95 percent of students benefit from scholarships, so much so, that WJU has a Tuition Free Day in order to thank the churches, partners, and sponsors for their financial contribution to the school's scholarship fund.
Most Common Religions
While most students that attend Jessup do so because of their Christian background, there are some atheists on campus, but for the most part, this causes very little issue. Jessup, as far as religious acceptance, is pretty accommodating, as students are more likely to accept each other for who they are than they would be to judge them.
Minority Clubs on Campus
Color Us Redeemed
Did You Know?
Each fall semester, students participate in a kind of cultural diversity day to celebrate the differences among students on campus.
