Students at the University of Illinois are Anything But Typical.
Marginalization is something that is present and still exists today on the University of Illinois’ campus. Students of different backgrounds are all impacted by this marginalization on a daily basis. Sometimes, these struggles do not make their school experience easy. However, these invisible issues make each person unique in their own way, and ultimately, this shapes them into what we define as an “a-typical” student.
The University of Illinois prides itself on its diversity, as it is home to students from all over the county and internationally who bring different perspectives and experiences. Yet some students are questioning just how inclusive the Illinois campus is to its diverse population.
