Lambda Student Union
The Lambda Student Union was founded to provide a means of communication between gay, lesbian, transgender, bisexual, questioning, and straight students at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. We serve the area through various educational programs, social activities, and political actions. Our weekly meetings serve as a way of organizing and unifying our community to bring attention to issues which affect each of us -- regardless of our sexualities.
