College Guide for LGBTQ Students

For prospective college students who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, or queer (LGBTQ), it’s crucial to find a college with a supportive learning environment where they can thrive. Campus Pride, the predominant national nonprofit organization serving LGBTQ students, functions as a primary resource for such a search. Each year, the site provides a comprehensive listing of the most LGBTQ-friendly colleges in the nation and hosts a college fair specifically geared toward LGBTQ youths and their families.

When you’re looking at potential colleges you should try to find a place where you can comfortably spend the next few years of your life. This can be a tall order for any high school senior, and even more so for LGBTQ students. Fortunately, there are a few indicators that can signal how LGBTQ-friendly a given school is.
