This work examines the relationship between class standing and college affiliation on attitudes toward the LGBT community. Data were collected at a medium sized, public Southeastern University using an electronic survey instrument. A total of 1768 students responded to the survey. Results show that upper-level students and students in the College of Arts and Sciences exhibit more tolerance than their first and second year peers and students in the College of Education and College of Business respectively.
