Student Life

Pride Center

The Pride was opened in 2005 after students campaigned for funding from the University for a safe space for people who identified as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or allies and for those that wanted to have a resource on campus for exploring such topics.

The Pride Center serves as the meeting space for student groups and host speakers, discussion groups and community events.

Some of the events we help put on are:

  • National Coming Out Week
  • Drag Ball
  • Pride Week
  • National Day of Silence
  • Transgender Day of Remembrance¬†
  • Lavender Recognition Ceremony

The Pride Center also has a great library of books and resources for and about the LGBTQA community.

For more questions, drop in and say hello or contact Sarah Vilardo.  

Student clubs and organizations that operate out of the PRIDE Center include:
