Diversity Is Reality

For junior Omar Rosales, diversity isn't a cliché or a lofty institutional goal. It's reality for the campus he calls home.

"You get to meet different people all the time," he says. "They help you become a more well-rounded person."

U.S. News & World Report recently ranked UT Arlington in the top 10 percent of racially diverse universities. Minorities account for more than 50 percent of the University's student population, with Hispanics (16.5 percent) and African-Americans (14.5 percent) representing the largest groups.

As Rosales can attest, UT Arlington is a place where students from all walks of life can find a comfort zone. In addition to serving as Mr. UTA, he's a member of Beta Theta Pi fraternity, the Leadership Academy, and the UTA HOSTS! mentoring program.

"Students feel included at UT Arlington," he says. "We are very accepting here."
