Welcome to QuASAR

QuASAR (Queer Association of Socorro Area Residents) is a club based upon the principles of equality, respect, and acceptance regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.

As a chapter of oSTEM (Out in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), we seek to address the needs of our fellow LGBTQ students in STEM disciplines. However, students of any major are encouraged to join us.

Everyone is welcome.



While QuASAR has only been around for a few years, much has been accomplished. We are now an official oSTEM chapter, and we are proud to be a part of this national organization.

We also organize a support group dedicated to the LGBTQ community here at NMT, and we invite you to join us. In group we try to foster a safe, supportive space where everyone can feel comfortable.
