Because Taylor is a Christian university, homosexual behavior is prohibited in the College's Life Together Covenant. However, acts of discrimination are also discouraged, and a student struggling to overcome any type of sin will be supported and encouraged at Taylor.
Student political stances vary significantly. There are not many political organizations on campus, but political speakers hold seminars on campus, and the student body council election can be a competitive race.
One of the great things about Taylor is that economic diversity does not affect student relationships. Because Taylor is an expensive school, many students come from upper-middle-class families. Students who need scholarships, however, usually get them, and Taylor is concerned about aiding students who have serious financial need.
