Queer Student Cultural Center
What is the QSCC?
- Queer Student Cultural Center (located in 205 Coffman Student Union)
- Coalition of 10+ LGBTQIA student organizations devoted to connecting students with one another, while helping them adjust to the U of M and explore their identities.
- QSCC in 205 serves as both a small office & a large open safe space for any student to come in, hang out, read some magazines, do some homework, and overall get connected with other LGBTQIA-friendly folks.
