Activism Highlight On-Campus:

In September of 2010 Phil Cleary exposed the far left agenda of the Gustavus Adolphus Freshman Orientation.

Cleary attended “Inside Scoop” a mandatory part of freshman orientation where students were instructed on how to come out of the closet to their room-mates, the joy of atheism, as well as a number of other sexually explicit topics.

Cleary took a video of the entire session and posted it on LI’s Campus Reform.  The video went viral and gained over 40,000 views on YouTube.  National media outlets National Review and World Net Daily picked up the story and put pressure on the Gustavus Adolphus administrators.

As media pressure grew, the Dean of Gustavus Adolphus was forced to respond to the orientation programming.  School administrators hosted an open forum discussing the “Inside Scoop” session and claimed they would change the format in the future.
