Gay Friendly Colleges

The University of Pennsylvania once again has topped the rankings of gay friendly colleges.

The University of Pennsylvania has once again topped “Newsweek’s” rankings of gay friendly colleges. This marks the second straight year that Penn has earned this distinction. Five years ago, Penn also topped “The Advocate’s” ranking of LGBT friendly colleges and the LGBT-Friendly Campus Climate Index regularly gives Penn strong numbers in this area as well.

And what other colleges excelled in this year’s “Newsweek” rankings for gay friendly colleges? Placing second is the University of California – Berkeley, followed by Oberlin College, New York University, University of Michigan, American University, Penn State University, University of Massachusetts – Amherst, Indiana University, Princeton University, Stanford University, Pomona College, Brown University, University of California – Santa Cruz, Swarthmore College, Duke University, Rice University, Harvey Mudd College, Cornell University, Tufts University, Northwestern University, University of Southern California, Georgetown University, and University of Chicago.
