William Paterson University sits in the middle of Wayne, NJ which can be seen as an upscale type of town. However, WPU isn't really an upscale school. You have some upper class students that maybe aren't as intelligent but are trying their best. Then there are urban kids from Paterson trying to better themselves to land in a better situation. There's also everyone in between. The attractiveness of the ladies and fellows ranges and there are so many different interests and hobbies among them - that's what makes William Paterson such a diverse place to go to college!

From what I have both seen from an outsider's view and experienced first hand, the diversity of William Paterson University is quite measurable. You will find all sorts of mingling of all nationalities, ethnicity, economic statuses, personality type, personal interests, and majors. Sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming, because it allows for a lot of stimuli outside of the focus of your major, but as long as you remember you core purpose for being there, it can be quite a wonderful and cultural experience!

I truly enjoyed all of the opportunities that were available to me. Whether it be study opportunities, discounted tickets to events, free apparel, internships, etc. There was always something that the school was offering, and that felt very good!
