The majority of students are white and middle to upper class! You can find the demographics on the UW website. I personally think that UW is not very diverse, in that it primarily represents the middle and upper classes...

Diversity is difficult to rate because it's such a relative thing, though most people would probably agree that UW has a pretty diverse campus. While there are many races and ethnicities represented in the UW student body, most minorities are not represented in large numbers. The majority of students are white, and there is also a large Asian population. Many students feel that whites and Asians are fairly segregated and that a disproportionate amount of black students are athletes. In all, it truly depends on your background. Some students consider UW to be extremely racially diverse, while others believe there is not a lot of diversity on campus every day. There's definitely a large diversity of backgrounds-from country kids to city dwellers-as well as religious ideologies.
Whatever the statistics say, however, the majority of UW students are politically liberal and the vast majority are socially accepting. It's rare to find a student who is closed minded or discriminatory when it comes to race, ideology, gender, or other identities. Many different voices are heard throughout campus-voices representing various cultures, nationalities, and beliefs. At the same time, however, some of those voices are heard at a disproportionate volume. For instance, the Greek system often dominates campus politics even though there are far less Greeks than non-Greeks on campus. Nevertheless, a walk though campus yields a variety of faces, and there is enough diversity that most people can find a niche of like-minded people.
