There is a lot of superficial diversity. Overall, one of my best friends put it the best, people here are boring. The type of student that comes here doesn't necessarily have a race or sexual orientation, but is certainly one-dimensional. People here enter interesting and become assimilated into the climate of self-absorption and all of a sudden become robots that are just studying, running clubs, and never really breaking the rules or being children. The administration encourages this, too. This also leads to a conservative climate. You are allowed to be queer, as long as you never question the sex-ed curriculum and you fall in line with school politics. You can't question gender relations (which are bad). You can't explore radical politics. No matter where your political views loom, it is almost always assumed that you are going to be ambitious and plan to have a career within mainstream society and be a reformer. If you don't fit that personality, you will have a hard time existing.
