The group sponsors a multitude of functions relevant to queer culture. They begin the year with a panel event for queer students and more at the New Student Orientation, and they continue to help new students develop strong support, social and academic networks on campus. I feared my secret might ruin my new friendships. There, students can take a virtual tour of the Center, they can sign up for a queer mentoring program and they can find all relevant resources on the services, education and programming that the Q Center provides. Students who apply to live on the gender-inclusive floor of Shasta Hall are not required to identify their gender. I made random comments about lectures.
And while it paid off and I had a new gay friend, I think I should have explored more.
Online, LGBT-identified military personnel and student athletes can find helpful resources on campus as well as in and around Portland. I would chat with guys online, but i either couldn't get up the nerve to meet them or I just didn't think they were a good fit. Our campus has also been home to some groundbreaking strides for the LGBT community.
And from start to finish, this department supports the LGBT students.
