    Elmhurst College put a question on its admissions application that won’t appear on any other school's application....."Would you consider yourself to be a member of the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered) community?”.....That optional question makes Elmhurst the first school in the country to ask applicants about their sexual orientation or gender identity, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Prospective freshmen and transfer students applying for the 2012 fall semester will become the first group of applicants to check “yes,” “no” or “prefer not to answer.” Their answers will not play a role in the admissions process.

    A “yes” answer could put students in line to qualify for a scholarship worth one-third of tuition at the private, liberal arts school affiliated with the United Church of Christ, said Rold....The college also plans to direct students to groups or resources to help them feel more comfortable on campus.

    "mission to increase diversity"? then why don't they recruit and admit some
    students who may actually vote for a republican one day?

    This is teaching the next generation that one doesn't need to work hard in highschool and be the best..it sounds like just being gay is good enough..at this rate students won't get letter grades, they'll be replaced with gold stars and smiley faces.

    This is more Liberal BS from Academia! Scholarship should be based on academic achievement, grades and performance to "earn" the scholarship, not be given based on race, sexual orientation, or need for diversity! This is why our education system is failing our students as more emphasis on being politically correct rather than producing highly educated prospective leaders of the future! (of course then we have to debate the more and more liberal curriculum being taught by mostly liberal professors are our nations colleges).

    another looney toon left leaning school. it's no wonder so many college grads find it tough to find employment without continuing on to grad school. the liberal arts degree that schools like this issue are almost useless these days.

    Eeek, to think I almost attended school there. The rumbling sound you hear is my grandmother and other relatives rolling in their graves. They were members of the old Evangelical and Reformed Church (at the time a church that held services in both German and Engish). It was a very conservative church til they merged with the United Church of Christ. I would never be comfortable in that lib church anymore. I guess it's true, you can't go home or return to the things treasured in your past.

    see now this kind of crap is BS. with Technology, all applicants to any school should be electronic and use a number system when determining acceptance, no names, races, gender, orientation or anything of that nature, just grades and whatever essay they want submitted.

    It's a private school. The scholarship money is also privately-funded. Who cares?


    I wonder, though, if they have a designation for the bi-curious? We are talking about college students, after all.

    Ugh... How can a college ask me that?! To me, that's none of their business. DAMN.

    Context doesn't matter to this liberal it seems/ as long as it satisfies his godless dreams/ like monkeys throwing sh!t as castles in air/ as long as he throws/that is the extent of his care.

    A public school would have no right, a private school does.

    Well, being this is a college that may lean liberal. . . they're probably going to assume that I want to join the stupid little LBGT cliques and sit through their lectures on bullying and stuff. I want to be treated like everyone else, so let's not sit through the awareness bullshit. Just let me go to class like everyone else. I don't want scholarships, or extra help because I'm configured a certain way. Don't step in unless I get my ass beat or I'm treated like shit because of my sexuality. Or my politics, for that matter. :p

    I guess b/c i remember the LGBT club meetings being so dreary, and having to lie about going to College Republicans later on.

    It's a UCC school, it's about as liberal as it gets outside of the Quakers or Cal Berkeley.

    It's not just about student organizations, it's also about financial aid. There are scholarships for gay kids through various foundations.
