We had every team member under the age of 24 who went/goes to college do a write-up on their University.
We posted the list of schools we still needed coverage for in a post and many of you volunteered to cover them or asked us if we could cover your non-listed school. We’re sorry that we didn’t have room for everybody and for every school and we invite you to share all your feelings about your school in the comments! How did we not find one single volunteer from Sarah Lawrence?
It is impossible to explain exactly what Barnard is (it’s a women’s college, but there are men in our classes, we are an independent college, but we are part of Columbia University, we are the “straightest” women’s college yet there is a whole web of lady-loving-drama that happens here).
It is hard to talk about LGBTQ life at Barnard without talking about LGBTQ life at Columbia.
Some Barnard students might not agree with me, but I have found that Barnard is a great place to be an openly gay lady.
They can meet those women in their classes, their clubs, and outside Barnard/Columbia altogether.
Unfortunately, not every school in the whole wide world is included, and we’re aware that if your school is not in this post, that you are gonna lose your shit in the comments, so let’s address that right away. We set our max number of schools in this post to 40 as anything over that is really unwieldy and could possibly spiral into a -size situation.
We had a list of schools we wanted covered due to their high scores on the Campus Pride Index and/or their sapphic reputations.
The more time I spend at Barnard the more I realize that everyone is gay.
For a while I truly did feel that Barnard was an incredibly straight women’s college—it does contain a rather “feminizing” force—but then I started actually meeting people (I’m slow, socially).
The smartest among you are probably skipping college altogether, but that’s another topic for another day.
