The University of Oregon's LGBT Education and Support Services Program Presents
GSA and LGBTQIA Visit Day
2016-2017 Registration Currently Closed
Join us at the University of Oregon for an official campus visit, where high school students will get an all-access pass to view what queer life on a college campus looks like. There will be presentations from student leaders, as well as information about scholarships, financial aid, and admissions. There will be opportunities to learn more about our Queer Studies Minor and Gender Inclusive Housing options, as well as other growing queer-related study options this institution provides. This event is free!
The GSA Connects Program hosts a campus tour day for GSAs in Western Oregon and beyond. The purpose of this event is to create an opportunity for prospective high school students to visit the University of Oregon campus and receive access to all of the resources we have to offer. This event includes presentation sessions from Admissions, Financial Aid, the student group LGBTQA3, and so much more. All programs have been put together in an effort to give high school students an idea about what college life can look like, as well as give them the opportunity to network with other GSAs through open inclusion in University of Oregon campus events. During the visit, there will be a tour where students and staff get the inside look of what all the on-campus queer communities and organizations have to offer.
High School Visits
If you are interested in having us visit your GSA, please contact the OUTreach Coordinator.
The GSA connects program was created as part of the LGBT Education and Support Services Program's OUTreach program in an effort to connect with high school GSAs in Lane County and beyond. This program has several goals:
Goal 1: We will provide support to local GSA advisers by offering annual contact meetings, referrals, and access to campus contacts
We will connect with GSAs by attending local GSA meetings during
the year to share resources and invite high school students to connect
with the campus community. Goal 3:
We will offer a visit for LGBTQ high school students to explore the University of Oregon and the college experience.
