Nearly 90 percent of the student population is white. Diversity is something that Allegheny students seem to want on campus, yet it is simply not the case. The College is very small and seems to attract mostly well-off Caucasians from Pittsburgh and Cleveland. There are people from around the country, but even they are rare. There are students of every race on campus, but they are truly a minority. In most classes, there might be one or two non-white students. Yet, despite their small numbers, minority groups on campus are very vocal. There is always some kind of event going on to celebrate a culture or to raise awareness and acceptance. The College faculty and administration are very supportive of these groups, as are the students.
There have been incidents where intolerance has been the subject of much debate, manifesting itself in angry editorials in The Campus newspaper and forum discussions in the Campus Center. The administration encourages the campus to continue the discussion and work through issues as a community.
