The Pride Alliance - The Pride Alliance believes in an open and accommodating society that does not single out, bully, or misrepresent those whose sexuality might not fit the norm. We are dedicated to endorsing, protecting, and championing the rights of those who practice sexualities other than heterosexuality -- in particular, gays, lesbians, bisexuals, and the transgendered. Accordingly, we are devoted to creating a campus environment that is friendly and welcoming of those who fall into these groups and those who do not.

* We are looking for students who believe that all human beings should be treated equally under the law.
* We are looking for students who believe that no group of people is better than any other.
