Movin’ on up: BYU moves from 6th to 4th most “gay-unfriendly” university in America

Written by Bob Henline

Yesterday the Princeton Review released its annual survey results which listed Provo’s Brigham Young University, owned and operated by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the Mormons) as the fourth most gay-unfriendly university in America.  BYU claimed the number 6 spot last year.

The survey asked 130,000 students from the top 379 colleges and universities to rate their schools and their experiences.  According to the survey, an average of 343 students responded per university.

The complete list of the top 20 LGBT friendly and unfriendly universities can be found here.

The Princeton Review is an organization, not affiliated with Princeton University, that provides college and graduate school preparation and information and rankings for the major universities in America.
