Although there are certain individuals who are not comfortable with the sexual orientation of their peers, overall the majority of students are accepting and tolerant of the gay and lesbian scene.
There are all sorts of political views on campus. Along with student organizations for Republicans and Democrats, there is also Green SU, a group for students who are very far left. Most students have respect for other people’s political views, but at the same time will adamantly defend their own opinions.
The economic status of students at SU has a little bit of variation, but is primarily upper-middle class students. There are some that come from lower socio-economic status and some very high-income homes, but many students fall in between. This is not very apparent on the campus, as everyone wears their sweats to class and hangs out together.
Most Common Religions
The most common religion on campus is Protestant Christianity. The school is Lutheran affiliated, meaning that many of the services and music are based in the Lutheran tradition. But there are also Jewish and Catholic ties within the community and in the chapel.
