Comments (primary residence)

"I have found Sigma Chi to be a very welcome and open environment to live in and support me through my four years at MIT. It is a group with diverse beliefs and interests and the debates which that has provoked have helped balance and shape my own outlook."

"The only people at MIT that I have found to have real problems with the LGBTQ community are religous students. Obviously, most of them would never try to stop someone from living life as they wish but some would and I find that very few of them respect the LBGTQ lifestyle as much as they do the heterosexual lifestyle. This bothers me."

"I believe that a lot of us are accepting of the LBGTQ community, but that is not the impression that some may have of us. I am confident that we would welcome anyone that chose to live pink, but we have to do a better job of making people feel comfortable around us, particularly males. "

"I heard someone once say something like this: / "We don't have any LGBTQ people living here, so we don't have to be as careful" / / I responded with: / "The assumption you are making that nobody here is LGBTQ is the exact reason why some people view us as they do and perhaps why none of our members have come out as LGBTQ""
