Emerson College Tops List of LGBTQ Friendly Colleges in US


Boston-based Emerson College has emerged as the most LGBTQ-friendly college in the country, according to the recent rankings by the Princeton Review.

Ranked No.1 in Princeton’s 27th annual college rankings, Emerson, which is the only college in America exclusively dedicated to communication and liberal arts, has taken consistent efforts to enhance the quality of life of its LGBTQ community.

The college has a Director of Intercultural Student Affairs (ICSA) who provides the necessary consultations to students on queer issues.

Following Emerson, others colleges that made in the Princeton Review’s LGBTQ-friendly top ten list in order of rank include: Bryn Mawr College, Brown University, Agnes Scott College, Mount Holyoke College, Warren Wilson College, Vassar College, College of the Atlantic, Sarah Lawrence College, and Franklin W. Olin College of Engineering.

The Princeton Review along with ranking the most LGBTQ-friendly colleges has also ranked the most LGBTQ-unfriendly colleges in the country. Missouri based College of the Ozarks, a Christian liberal arts college has been ranked as the most unfriendly LGBTQ college in the country.

As admission season nears, Princeton ranked colleges on different topics that interest applicants after surveying 138,000 students at 384 top colleges across the country.

“We know applicants need far more than an academic rating or ranking to find the college that will be best for them. We created our 62 ranking lists to help narrow that search. They are based entirely on data we gather beyond academics that gives insight into what the schools’ enrolled students say about their professors, administrators, school services, campus culture, and student life. In the end, it’s all about the fit,” Robert Franek, The Princeton Review’s Editor-in-Chief said.

Last year Bryn Mawr College was ranked No. 1 while Emerson third by the Princeton Review.
