    I'm going to be attending UNCW in the fall as a transfer student!

    I need to know that there will be gay people to relate to!

    Where I live now, in a small town...there are tons of narrow-minded people and I'm hoping this will be different!

    Please don't tell me I will be getting myself into the same situation in college!

    Thanks!!

    Go to their main website

    Type in "gay" on their search engine.

    The website for the school's gay and lesbien group on campus will pop up in the search results.

    Look at it.

    Join it next semester

    Sorry but i find colleges are biased about their own programs and clubs


    OP:
    First, I went to UNCW in 2002... looking to go there right after high school. One word: Beautiful! NC is such a nic state and UNCW is a great school. I'm not sure how they are acadmically anymore... I know they used to have weeding out courses though.

    Anyways... try to get in contact with some GLBT students there. Also there is a Princton Reeview Book on how friendly various schools are to GLBT students. I have it, but not where I am living right now. It is a good reference.

    Actually, Here is a link to the book:

    wilmington has a very good gay population, or atleast its better than ECU's.. and you've got the beach so thats always a plus. Raleigh isn't too far away, and the club there isn't too bad either. The DJ there is nice, and i plan to visit wilmington more this summer, its not bad place at all and I hope you enjoy it!

    it's a nice place to be gay... the lgbt student groups are more active at unc-winston salem if i understand it right, but wilmington has a good rep.
