Finding your comfortable space in everyday life can be difficult, but it can be especially difficult for students living away from home for perhaps the first time.
The Daily Penn reports on the popularity of niche organizations.

“We felt the Queer People of Color group didn’t really cater to the Asian population, in that there weren’t that many Asians involved,” college senior and Penn Q&A Co-Founder Victoria Chen said. They started a niche group for Asian Americans.
Other campuses have contacted Penn for advice on starting niche groups.
