The area outside the LGBT Resource Center, immediately in front of its door and slightly to the left where a few soft chairs and couches are facing each other, is unofficially known as the Queer Corner. There are usually people from the community hanging around there during the day, and ONA commonly uses it as a meeting place if we're planning to carpool somewhere.
