Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA)

The purpose of this organization is to provide a supportive and educational environment for gay, lesbian, and bisexual students.


We are an interdenominational ministry which welcomes all students to explore and discuss the Bible as we support and encourage one another.  Questions about faith are always welcome, and students of all faith or no faith are invited to our weekly meetings and to other special events which we hold throughout the semester.  We hope to promote students' spiritual and social growth while creating an atmosphere of unity and acceptance.  All are welcome!
