ICQ 2002/4




College Gets Nod from PlanetOut.com

Ithaca College has been voted one of the best colleges in the nation for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender students by the readership of the popular LGBT website PlanetOut.com. The survey was conducted early last year. Ithaca College, along with 12 other universities (including Bard College, Boston University, Brown University, New York University, Smith College, and Yale University) was voted as one of the best Northeast colleges. Those who nominated Ithaca College mentioned such reasons as the number of LGBT and allied staff and faculty, the LGBT center (which was planned but not yet in existence at the time of the survey), and the fact that Ithaca is an LGBT-friendly town. PlanetOut.comís site reports 50 million monthly page views and 1.5 million registered viewers.
