There are so many ways that our students are diverse. From geography to physical and learning ability, our students all contribute in significant ways to the learning environment and our campus culture.

• 20% are African American,
• 2% are Asian,
• 4% are Hispanic,
• 2% are two or more races, and
• 4% are international.
This includes domestic students from 49 states and international students from 82 countries. Learn more about our international students by visiting the Office of International Affairs.
Our students also join our community with a range of physical and learning abilities. In Fall 2014, there were 819 students thriving on campus despite learning or physical disabilities. Visit the Office of Disability Services for more information.
