I'm thinking about transferring. I've stayed this long because I thought the feeling would go away, but it hasn't. I cant exactly put a finger on how I'm feeling but its like I don't belong/I feel like I'm just going to class and that's it. I'm very involved(NAACP,SGA-Diversity Affairs,Rotaract,etc). Then there's the "diversity" thing. If that's not the biggest load of bull! Pretty much have mostly African American associates, but I have tried to reach out to different races, but everyone self segregates but pretends to be diverse on certain days and events. Ive gotten the argument of "oh an hbcu=ghetto" and "you wont get a job"etc. I don't care about the nice facilities here, that's nice and everything but I would rather be happy than brag about Olympic size pools and stuff that I don't even use or aren't really welcomed to because of nasty looks from the Anglos. Also something that hurt was when I saw a noose near the stadium. It was the first time I ever had to deal with something like this. We were told we might see some ignorant things, but that hurt inside. Ive seem a caravan of men in sheets with a huge confederate flag yelling white power. The feeling of hate, knowing that no matter how much a sorority girl partied, she would get the answer key to the test etc. I know that no where is perfect, but I want to be in an environment where professors are nurturing success, history,scholarship. Where I can fellowship with other students like me, and not have to worry about the snickers and responses to my answers as if they are inadequate while my white counterparts give ignorant answers and its ok.

P.S. I attend the University of Tennessee

I can relate to the HBCU and PWI experience. In particular, I graduated from an HBCU and PWI. I enjoyed my experience at the HBCU and PWI. More importantly, I am confident that you will receive a quality education at an HBCU. Honestly, several of the minorities that I have encountered in Corporate America are HBCU graduates. Therefore, I don’t think you will have an issue finding a career opportunity. The key is to network and build effective relationships. Best wishes with your future endeavors!
