Everyone I have encountered at Ohio State is very accepting! One of my good friends that I met my freshman year at Ohio State is half black and white and he had no trouble fitting in. We had a blast!

OSU students voice mixed feelings regarding diversity issues. The main population of the University is still overwhelmingly white, and though there has been a visible effort on the part of the school to increase this, there has been no drastic change in the number of minorities enrolled. Still, many feel that the changes necessary for creating a more diverse school are in the process of being made. In addition, recent articles in the Lantern (the student newspaper) have shown that, while there may be a significant minority population at OSU, most students tend to stay within their own cultural boundaries-the phenomenon of self-segregation.
The biggest drawback to OSU's student climate is a lack of racial diversity. Considering the school's Midwestern location, there is still a respectable number of cultures represented; however, this doesn't change the fact that minority students may feel like fish out of water, at times, in OSU's largely homogenous community. The redeeming factor is that there are many cultural clubs and organizations in the University, so minority students have a chance to meet each other and take better advantage of OSU's programs.
