San Diego State University (SDSU) hosted its 10th annual Pride Flag Raising Ceremony Friday.
The university celebrated the accomplishments of its LGBTQ students at the ceremony. Students waved the rainbow flags to symbolize the diverse sexual orientations and gender identities at SDSU.
“Part of our stance at SDSU is to be inclusive to all of our students on campus. I think we have done a great job on this campus, building this inclusivity,” said Christopher Lujan, SDSU Pride Center Coordinator.
SDSU also ranked seventh on the "Best Colleges for LGBT Students" list and appeared on a College Choice list of the 50 best colleges for LGBTQ students.
“It’s great to come here today and celebrate all the great things we have done on this campus and to connect with our community," said Lujan.
SDSU has offered an LGBT studies minor since 2009, and an LGBT studies major for five years.
The university has been nationally recognized as one of the most LGBTQ-friendly universities in the nation by the Campus Pride Index.
