Super diverse. I got to have a multitude of experiences in undergrad bc of the diversity of the student population. I had one group of friends who were all fraternity/sorority, another which all became acquainted through the rhetoric department and loved debating together, and yet another who were all varsity athletes. I got to see the world through many different lenses, and it shaped me in many ways that have been beneficial both personally and professionally.

There was a lot of ethnic diversity which I thought helped make the courses more competitive and challenging. It is a huge university. With such a large campus and student population, making friends was either done in class, at the dorms, or off campus entirely. Students had a lot of independence, and you had to be self-motivated in order to succeed.
