Stanford makes top of the list of Princeton Review’s LGBT-friendly campuses


In  Princeton Review’s latest college rankings, Stanford was named the nation’s No. 1 LGBT-friendly campus for its welcome atmosphere for those who are lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender. The list is based on current students’ answers to the survey question: “Do students, faculty and administrators at your college treat all persons equally, regardless of their sexual orientations and gender identity/expression?”

The guidebook surveyed 130,000 students at the 379 colleges to rate their schools on dozens of topics and report on their campus experiences.

The rankings, which were released earlier this week, also included Stanford once again on its 2015 Green Honor Roll for “exceptional commitments to sustainability across key issues,” from course offerings and recycling programs to plans for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Stanford was ranked fourth among schools with the best college libraries, seventh for top entrepreneurial programs for undergraduates and eighth as best-run college.
