Email News Alerts

Alexandria Technical and Community College has joined a wave of colleges across the country that have incorporated a safe zone on their campuses.


Safe zones are a haven for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered (LGBT) students to find connections in the community. Whether a student has recently moved to the area or is a local resident who is new to the college, he or she can find someone to talk to in a safe zone.
