4. Hampshire College
Hampshire College’s LGBTQ community isn’t messing around when it comes to its resources and opportunities. PrideNet, which is the college’s website on everything LGBTQ, hosts over a thousand pages, provides links to outside services and information, and allows visitors to hone in on their search by region and topic, which makes it that much easier for trans students to find trusted information on everything gender-related. Aside from this significant web presence, Hampshire encourages creativity through awarding money to students who write and produce art following a LGBT theme with its KarMel Scholarship. Talk about setting a good example.
