The Center

Welcome

Our center is a safe space for all members of the university community to come in and explore aspects of sexual orientation and gender identity/expression in an open and non-judgmental atmosphere. Our center houses an expanding collection of DVDs/videos (available to view in the center and/or check out), a comfy couch, a TV, DVD and VHS player, various magazines to browse through, information on local resources, a microwave, and a computer for students to utilize. So come on over and read a book from our library, watch a movie, warm up your lunch, or just hang out with friends! Who knows, you might just meet some great people and make a few new friends. Check out the homepage for directions and hours.
