Sounds like it's time to get the ACLU involved.

Dear Students of Lindenwood,

Congratulations! You've just been awarded an extra, bonus opportunity to learn by your school, with no extra tuition charge! What does this package offer? Well, you get to have a hands-on tutorial in developing the following skills:

- Making a case for the benefit that a GSA can provide, complete with airtight arguments that will impress the administration with your resolve,

- Organising your community into a force that the university must reckon with,

- Organising and executing peaceful demonstrations, petitions, and other forms of protest for this decision,

- Cultivating your communications skills, as you will certainly do when you inform the media of the actions you propose to take,

- Cultivating your public speaking skills when these media interview you,

- Collaboration with graduate students and faculty who have more experience dealing with university hierarchies and administrations than most undergraduates possess. Let them help. Don't let them take over for you.

These skills will serve you well in both your professional and your personal lives. I urge you to seize this opportunity.

Sounds like the university needs an education on sexual orientation. It's not a lifestyle, it's a sexual orientation. The university is supposed to be educated. Apparently they are not. Do they ignore the APA as well?

wikipedia says it's called "Pork Chop U." because it used to allow families to give livestock to reduce tuition, and the school cafeteria would then feed the animals to the students....

It goes without saying from the above that they got rid of coed dorms and went for a "values" centered education.
