But when Robles heard about Delta Lambda Phi, a social fraternity for gay, bisexual and progressive men, he said he found a great outlet on campus.

“It’s a nice group of people I can go and hang out with, spend time with, and feel comfortable with,” said Robles, the current president of the fraternity.  “And I think that’s a great outlet to have.”

Students, administration, and faculty members gathered in Hendricks Chapel on Thursday afternoon to discuss issues about minority scholarship cuts, understanding diversity, and what it means to truly belong at SU.

Raising signs with messages such as “Why are we being ignored?” and “No decisions about us without us,” Syracuse University students led a silent but powerful protest on the steps of Hendricks Chapel before the 3:30 p.m. start of the university-organized Express SU forum Thursday.
