Optimizing Your First Year Experience: Queer Identities & Beyond is designed to provide community, education and supportive matriculation for our LGBTQIA+ and ally identifying students at Cornell University who are connected to Loving House in their first year. This course will provide support to students as they navigate the ambiguity that arises from their transition to college. This course will promote and encourage self-exploration of your queer identities, ways to be successful at Cornell and beyond while keeping in mind the importance your identity plays into your experience as a student and as a global citizen. This course will look at the historical context of the LGBTQIA+ community and how that interacts with the queer experience.
