However, three are in North Carolina, despite the recent passage of anti-LGBT legislation in the state. While the schools may be LGBT-friendly, the local environment isn’t.

The colleges were “evaluated and ranked schools based on publicly available information on accreditation, Campus Pride rating, academic reputation, student satisfaction, affordability, average financial aid awarded, and return on investment.”
