Queer Peers

Building Community for first year, change of campus, and transfer LGBTQ+ students 

Belong. Be informed. Graduate.

Queer Peers aims to share information and resources, build community, and assist with students' transition to Penn State, University Park. As first year, transfer, or change-of-campus students, participants can engage in various events, programs, and activities that will enhance their student experience, social networks, and will help them gain a better understanding of Penn State's resources as they relate to the LGBTQ+ community.
