Class of 2025, Creative Writing and Women and Gender Studies

“As a first-year college student, I was afraid that with the number of people at UToledo, I would have a hard time meeting other queer people like me. LGBTQA+ Initiatives helped introduce me to SAGA and tons of queer events where I met so many people that I now consider incredibly close friends. I have an incredible support system made of wonderful people who I can relate to.”
