Harvard is tolerant of homosexuality, and the Bisexual, Gay, Lesbian, Transgender and Supporters Allliance (BGLTSA) is constantly rallying to increase tolerance for homosexuality on campus.
Harvard possesses a largely liberal political base, but conservative political groups do make their presence felt. Nearly every student has an informed opinion, and the Institute of Politics provides an excellent forum for discussion and debate of current political topics.
The economic status of Harvard students ranges the entire spectrum. Some students work their way through school, while others never worry about finances. Most students come from upper-middle-class homes.
Most Common Religions
Harvard is certainly a secular University in which no one religion dominates the University. Christianity and Judaism appear to be the most represented religions. Religiously focused organizations have very little visibility on campus.
Minority Clubs on Campus
Undergraduate minority students have the opportunity to join many clubs and organizations that are focused on improving the status of and fostering community among minority students on campus. Most notable is the Black Students Association (BSA).
