SAIL Testimonials

Craft Time with SAIL
  • SAIL has been amazing for me as a freshman at GB! I feel very safe and accepted by everyone on our floor and I feel comfortable making friends here. As a bisexual and someone with severe social phobia, I feel like I have a lot of support and acceptance in SAIL.
  • I used to be really nervous to live in SAIL because I was worried I was putting myself in a bubble. Now, all my friends live here and I am safe to try new names or pronouns. I love living here where I am safe!
  • I’m so glad I decided to be in SAIL! More space, very relaxed and friendly are just some of the things I enjoy and notice about our floor.
  • Without SAIL, I would not live on campus, or be as active in the campus community as I am. I feel like I can be myself without fear because I have a safe place to live. Since we are able to bring our full selves to our living community, we can give more to the campus. SAIL is great.
  • It's a wonderful, safe and inclusive space that is a really relaxing environment for the members of our community to be in. There's a lot of joy in the community that SAIL has created for us, and a lot of common ground. There's a vibe of harmony and working together to get things done, to continue to try to change things for the better at our school. SAIL is just one step in the process, to spread the influence farther. Hopefully we can have SAIL in other buildings as well in the future.
  • It's cool that SAIL has extra meetings and social times for us to get to know each other in a safe environment. It keeps me connected with the community and housing.
  • We love knowing that our RA has been trained on LGBTQIA things and understands the experiences that we have. Our RA made sure to ask everyone's pronouns and preferred names when we moved in, and every time they make a name tag for the door they check with us to make sure we have a name that fits us. It's the extra little things that really make this community and living space feel so safe and inclusive.
  • If housing did not offer this safe and inclusive place to live, I would not be living on campus right now or in the future. SAIL makes me feel so supported for who I am.
