You won’t find a campus more diverse than at the University of Chicago. There are people on campus from all backgrounds and ethnicities. The school attracts a lot of international students. Chances are, you’ll have class with someone from a different country. Having so much diversity on campus is a huge advantage for students. They can expand their worldviews and learn about new cultures simply by talking to their classmates. Beyond ethnic diversity, there is also a lot of variety in people’s beliefs and lifestyles. The entire campus is very religiously tolerant. Students of different religions tend to cluster together to celebrate their faith. Bond Chapel, located on the main quad, holds several services throughout the day for each group. In addition, you’ll find every political view known to man at the University. There’s always a chance for you to learn about different political alignments in presentations and RSO (recognized student organization) meetings. The school is very tolerant of differences in sexualities, too. The Office of LGBTQ Student Life has a large presence on campus and throws quarterly events to raise awareness.
The University doesn’t tolerate any kind of hate crimes. If you ever feel that you’ve been a victim of prejudice, there is a Bias Response Team hotline that is available 24/7; they’ll help you work through the incident. The University wants to have a tolerant and diverse atmosphere for its students. Just walk out of your dorm room, and you’ll see the school has succeeded.
