When it comes to helping gay students prepare for life after college, few of the nation's institutions of higher education earn top honors in providing them with relevant resources to aid in a successful job search upon graduation, a new survey finds.

Of the 109 colleges surveyed, just 6 percent of career centers at those schools earned a top rating by OUT for Work, a Washington, D.C.-based advocacy organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender college students. The purpose of its survey is to gauge the career tools, programs and resources applicable to LGBT students through campus career centers, the group says.
