The LGBT Education and Support Services Program's OUTreach Program hosts a campus visit day for GSAs (Gay/Straight or Gender and Sexuality Alliances) in regional areas of Oregon and beyond. The purpose of this event is to create an opportunity for prospective high school students to visit the University of Oregon campus and receive access to all of the resources we have to offer, including LGBTQIA+ opportunities and support.  This event includes presentation sessions on various topics including student leadership and organizing, networking, applying to college, financial aid, and so much more.  All program sessions are intentionally designed to give high school students an idea about what college life might look like, as well as give them the opportunity to network, share ideas, and strategize with other GSAs. During the visit, students will enjoy a taste of our dining experience on campus, tour the gender equity hall, and attend workshop sessions led by current student leaders and out staff members.
