When walking around the Binghamton campus, you will see and hear students, professors, and faculty from countless ethnic backgrounds. There are student groups to represent nearly every religious, ethnic, political, and sexual orientation affiliation. The groups are active and generally provide a place for students to feel accepted and add to the overall tolerant atmosphere.
If you look closer, though, although diverse, Binghamton student groups that represent different affiliations tend to stay to themselves. Students complain that, although tolerant, the diversity on campus is very isolated. There isn't a lot of mixing among students of different backgrounds. There are student groups like the Women's Student Union, BU Association for Mixed Students, and Rainbow Pride Union that try and combat this problem by being open to everyone.
