We need to do more as a campus to promote diversity. It's hard making friends here and it makes me question if I made the right decision to come here.
Contrary to the prior two posts, this suggestion is about race, not friendship. How do you promote diversity on campus if you don't reach back to your own high schools and suggest that rising seniors apply to CNU? Seems like a simple grassroots problem to me
I'm kinda surprised this is even a problem for at least 15 people here... That's so sad. Having trouble making friends at a school as friendly as CNU kinda bewilders me. You can walk anywhere on this beautiful campus and run into acquaintances, friends, professors, employees, etc. all very happy to share a smile & a greeting and even stop and ask how you're doing. I also feel like diversity is a very different topic than making friends. Yes- when it comes to skin color, CNU is very monotone, but if you search deep within the lives and personalities of fellow students here, you can see how different people are in their backgrounds, religions, views, interests, etc.

If you are having trouble making friends, I must ask. What have you done to make friends so far? What clubs, groups, organizations, ministries, teams, initiatives, volunteer tracks have you tried? Because to me, if a someone here isn't making friends it is MOST of the time due to their lack of involvement. You may be different, but give it some thought.
