What they are saying...


"Penn State’s LGBTQA Student Resource Center is what I believe to be PSU’s strongest connection across our university. The staff work tirelessly trying to assist the LGBTA community gain the resources and recognition they deserve. I can honestly say I believe the SRC staff are some the greatest people to work with. They embody what it truly means to be Penn Staters."-Bryan Underkoffler-Schuylkill campus
