Washington University gets top marks for being friendly and welcoming to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people, according to this year's LGBT Friendly Campus Climate Index.

The index, which has been in development since 2001, quizzes colleges and universities on a number of criteria, such as housing, policy, outreach and inclusion. It weighs the self-reported answers and grades schools out of five stars.

Wash. U. is one of 33 schools to get a five-star rating. Its entry on the index touts the university's non-discrimination policy and gender-neutral housing and restrooms on campus. It also mentions parties like the Masqueerade and Gayla, fall and spring semi-formals.

Nice work, Wash. U.!
