"LGBTQ Unfriendly", a survey conducted by Princeton Review with 137,000 students from 382 schools and published this month lists the most LGBTQ unfriendly schools.

The most unfriendly is the College of the Ozarks, a private Christian school that is located in Point Lookout, Missouri.

Asked about this outcome, public relations director Valorie Coleman that she did not view the school as unfriendly to LGBT people. It is not true. There are strict rules on "sexual immorality."

"We are pretty transparent about it," she told Kansas City. "That is who we are. We are a religious institution that adheres to a Christian worldview."

Also, the handbook indicates that there are severe repercussions. LGBT students may be dismissed from school because of their gender identity or their sexual orientation.

"Sexual relations are for the purpose of the procreation of human life and the uniting and strengthening of the marital bond ... purposes that are to be achieved solely through heterosexual relationships in marriage," the handbook states.

Homosexuality and gender expression “inconsistent with the sex assigned at birth” are listed in it as “misuses of God’s gift of human sexuality.”

Straight students can be dismissed for touching each other, having sex or watching porn.

Bryn Mawr College

The most LGBTQ friendly is the Bryn Mawr College, Pennsylvania.
