LGBT Virtual College Fair

By Charlotte Robinson, March 13, 2016
Access & affordability to higher education is an ongoing concern for many prospective students & their families but for LGBTQ youth picking the right college is also a matter of safety, support & acceptance. Campus Pride the leading national educational organization for LGBTQ & ally college students & campus groups is hosting a national online college fair on Thursday March 17th from 3P to 9P EST featuring live chats with 50+ college reps, G+ hangout & Twitter Q&A at #LGBTQCollege411. The fair is free to youth & families highlighting LGBTQ friendly colleges, scholarships & college prep resources. Shane Windmeyer, Executive Director of Campus Pride stated, “Today prospective students & families want to know which campuses are LGBTQ friendly & they expect there to be specific LGBTQ inclusive programs, policies & services on campus. The online fair showcases these LGBTQ-friendly campuses & allows them to outreach for diversity when it comes to gender identity & sexual orientation. Campus Pride believes strongly that access & opportunity go hand in hand. We must give all LGBTQ & ally youth access to education in safe spaces where they can learn & be accepted holistically.” This year the online fair includes 50+ colleges including Columbia College Chicago, New York University, Ohio University, Drexel University, Gustavus Adolphus College Georgia Tech, University of Pennsylvania & more. Fair attendees have the possibility to win up to $5000 in prizes.
