IWUPA is the on-campus activist voice for gendered equality. The gay and lesbian community is strongly supported, and nearly all professors take part in the Safety Zone program, in which a rainbow sticker designates an area on campus free of prejudice.
College Democrats and College Republicans stage debates to coincide with ongoing political battles in the news. Student Senate holds elections each year, in which students partition the student body with proposals for change during the school year.
The large majority of students come from the suburbs of Chicago. Most students on campus are middle to upper class.
Most Common Religions
The most prominent religion on campus is Christianity. Most students do not affiliate with any one faith exclusively. Multi-faith services are held at Evelyn Chapel, as well as seasonal holiday celebrations.
Minority Clubs on Campus
The Latin American club, CLASE, sponsors Nuyorican poetry readings and a Mariachi Ball. The South Asian Student Association sponsors a Cricket Tournament every spring. The Black Student Union holds a poetry slam and Mixer early in the year. These events are highly attended and attract students of all races and ethnicities.
