Students on the other hand worry about discrimination from their peers, and also what teachers may think of them. While teachers get the chance to go home to a comfortable environment, most college students go back to a dorm or student apartments, where the college environment (and community) flourishes.
Many times to escape these problems both professors and students have turned to substances to temprarily 'forget' their problems. however many of these harmful substances have left bad connotations with the gay community as a whole.
Many times McNaron speaks of groups of friends she spent time with, some were posative, while others had negative affects; similar to a student's idea of a GLBT club or alliance.
she also brings different ideas to help closeted individuals deal with their stress.

i'm pretty firmilair with some search engines on the rutgers libraries homepage, however i was wondering if there is an easier way to look at books that have been checked out already, the racall button helps, but i'd rather not force someone to return a book they are using only to have it recalled back... is there any way to view parts of books online from rutgers?
i also found an awesome webiste that used information from The Princeton review, and CollegeProwler.com that had some unique statistics: at bestcollegerankins.org
however when i searched 'college and gay' i found mostly websites with tips to handling college, and different depressing articles about gay teens who have committed suicide during their time at school. with most of these articles it is unclear if drugs or alcohol were present during the suicide. i am now trying to find books that will tie these topics together.
