Four Minnesota colleges and universities made the seventh annual list of the nation's most gay-friendly campuses. The advocacy group Campus Pride creates the list.

MinnPost reports that Carleton College in Northfield, Macalester College in St. Paul, the University of Minnesota-Duluth and the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities were included. According to the Huffington Post, the list is based on data that reviews eight LGBT-friendly factors, including support, safety, student life and counseling and health.

Northland's News Center reported that UMD achieved the top rating of 5 stars in categories including overall campus climate, sexual orientation, and gender identity/expression.

"UMD students are extremely proud of this achievement," Angie Nichols, director of the UMD Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender (GLBT) Services Office, told the station. ���They have been at the forefront of creating change on campus for years.”
