LGBTQ+ friendly schools: How to choose?

Hi everyone, I am a high school junior looking to apply to colleges next year, and it's important for me to attend a LGBTQ+ friendly campus. I'm considering schools like NYU, UCLA, and Brown, but I'm not sure how to compare them in terms of inclusiveness. Any advice on how to research and choose LGBTQ+ friendly colleges? Thank you!

Hi there! It's great to see that you're thinking ahead and prioritizing a college environment that will be supportive and inclusive. When researching LGBTQ+ friendly colleges, there are a few key factors that you might want to consider.

Firstly, look for resources and support centers that specifically cater to LGBTQ+ students. Many colleges have LGBTQ+ resource centers, which can provide a safe space and facilitate connection with other students who share your experiences. For example, all three of the schools you mentioned - NYU, UCLA, and Brown - have LGBTQ+ student centers on campus.

Another aspect to consider is campus organizations and clubs related to LGBTQ+ issues. You can find information on each school's website about student groups that address LGBTQ+ concerns and promote inclusivity.

Additionally, websites like CollegeVine and Campus Pride offer rankings and information on LGBTQ+ friendly colleges. Campus Pride, in particular, has an annual list of LGBTQ-friendly schools and an index that rates colleges based on LGBTQ+ inclusion in policies, programs, and practices.

Lastly, remember that visiting a campus and attending info sessions can also give you a sense of a school's culture and atmosphere. Good luck on your college search, and I hope you find the perfect fit!
