Yale prides itself on its diversity and the freedom of expression on campus, and most students agree that the student body is diverse ethnically, economically, religiously, and geographically. The wide spectrum of lifestyles and backgrounds exposes students to a truly unlimited number of perspectives. Students feel free (and are often more than willing) to express their opinions; more importantly, they are eager to listen to other's opinions and broaden their worldview. This culture of free exchange creates an exciting atmostphere of learning amongst the students and sets Yale apart from other universities with a less diverse student population.
In addition, every perspective among the student body is represented in student organizations, clubs, and associations that are very present on campus. These groups help students find others with similar backgrounds and interests and provide extensive support as new Yalies transition into student life. If anything, some of the cultural groups can promote self-segregation because they bring together students with so much in common. However, the residential college system and the campus mindset generally succeed in shaping a community made of incredibly diverse young men and women all functioning together under the single title of "Yalie."
