Safety in numbers: an extended list of on-campus safe spaces

This week's Student Survival Guide included a piece of "safe spaces" (Safety in numbers: Campus safe spaces offer comfy couches and open minds) highlighting spaces on campuses where "all classes, genders, sexualities, races, religions, and other beliefs are proactively discussed and accepted."
