Is the uni still Bohemian/hippieWatch
Do you think there's more bohemian/hippie people than the average uni?What's the vibes
Thank you for your question. Sussex University, and generally Brighton as a city can be said to be ethnically/ culturally diverse. For instance, students from over 100 different countries study at Sussex, and students self-recognizing as belonging to BAME (Black, Asian and minority ethnic) cultural background make a significant proportion of overall student population. Personally, I would not say that I have noticed a large proportion of bohemian/hippie people at Sussex campus per say. However, I am sure there are certain individuals at Sussex uni, and Brighton as a whole that would describe themselves as such. If you are really keen on finding out more about this subject, I would recommend emailing Sussex University (General enquiries; [email protected]), as they may be able to provide you with a bit more detailed response, or refer you to appropriate contacts/ resources.
Overall, ethnic, cultural, and religious diversity is highly celebrated as Sussex, as is reflected by a high number of culturally-specific societies & events, and specific sources of support for ethnic minority & international students. Let me know if you would be interested in finding out more about the latter two points. Also, if you have any further questions, I would be more than happy to answer them.
