4 College Freshman

Diversity: The school is very diverse

4 College Freshman

Diversity: William Penn Campus is extremely diverse. People come from all over the country as well as other countries. All students are treated equally by staff and their peers. Students also come from all kinds of economic backgrounds. Many students come on sports or academic scholarship, paying for most of their schooling but some also attend private university paying the full cost. Political beliefs and religion are not among popular topics on campus. Everyone is accepting to other opinions. Sexual orientation is very diverse as well. There are many same-sex couples among campus along with straight couples.

Diversity: I do not know very many students and I do not live on campus or spend any time there outside of class.

Diversity: Fish Out of Water – The community of Oskaloosa is a heavily white community with little exception. However, the campus at William Penn brings in a lot of students from more diverse and metropolitan areas of the country. For the most part, the community is very accepting of the diversity that William Penn brings to the community, but I would be remiss if I didn't mention that it is a nearly obvious label when you see a black 20-something around town to assume they are a WPU student.
