LGBT+ STUDENTS
The LGBT+ Students Network is a place for all LGBQ+ and Tran+ and Non-Binary students. We care and drive the support and events for LGBT+ students’ on campus. We are active members of the LGBT+ community and won’t rest until all LGBT+ students feel welcome and get the most out of their time at Essex.
