Diversity?
Complete poppycock!
You are hardly "Diverse" when your claim to fame is 70% of your graduates are from one specific race...

being gay is no different from being a child molester. it is sick. it is wrong. america should lock up all gay people for their disturbing behavior. if they still insist on behaving as they do, they should be given the death penalty on their 5th offense. correction 4 times is enough. america needs to stand up for what is right and decent in the world. down with gay behavior.

You are living in the wrong country and should be in some Facist state that only believes in law based on the Bible. I think some Muslims have similiar beliefs - death to all that they don't agree with.

I discovered the other day that there are over 2000 versions of the Bible, many translations to suit a specific segment of a society. Kind of sounds like creating your own God to represent political views. I would image that I could find a Bible that could hate you haters and would also have a God on my side. I don't care to look though because I don't believe in hating while hiding behind a Bible or some God created in my own mind.

That's like saying the University of Berlin produces more German engineers than any university in the world.

No apology was necessary since the gay community, specifically at UTEP, are so willing to classify anyone expressing any dissent regarding homosexuality as homophobic, bigoted, and intolerant. What happened to freedom of speech in this country?

It is those same nurses who will be ofrced to put up with biggots and care for your loved ones when their bodies give out. Like it or not the US is becoming more and more hispanic...To meet the demands of that poulation hispanic nurses will rise to the challenge. You mentioned Loyola or Baylor, their monolingual nurses will be challenged to care for someone of another culture or one who speaks another language. Hate hate and bunch of haters. If you do not like El Paso, I encourage you to get out and stay out!!

Are you saying that El Paso deserves mediocrity? Because you illegals keep jumping the border and making your way off the American taxpayers back, we should be grateful? No, we should be sending big bills to Mexico every month for saving your dead butts because you don't have the guts to fight for your country? Where's Santa Ana? The glory of Mexico is dead and buried.
