I am going to college in the Fall and among my many worries is also the fact that it is predominantly white. I am pretty secure about my roots and stuff but it's always nice to see a few people of color on campus. I went to a high school that was around 10% black, 15% asian and 75% white. So I thought it was a great ratio and i had friends of all races. Now, I'm going to college in the Minneapolis and there aren't as many blacks there as there are in the NJ/NY area.

Is that school you are going to in Minneapolis, the University of Minnesota Twin Cities?? If it is, I will be going there next year! I'm slightly worried about the same thing, but i've lived in Minnesota all my life and even if there may not be a lot of people of color on  the campus, the city itself is still pretty diverse

  you guys have got to be kidding right Geek

like seriously ? Shocked the Twin Cities metro area is VERY diverse, especially if you guys are going to the U of M !

You guys will NEVER feel left out, I can guarantee you that !

You guys are lucky, because of my major, I can't transfer to the U Twin Cities, and I have to go up north to the Duluth campus to finish my degree, where it is very homogenous to say the least Unhappy.

so count your blessings !

you two won't have a DAMN (and I mean not in the SLIGHTEST) thing to worry about ! Wink

I've been to the U several times, and It is extremely diverse, and the campus itself is GORGEOUS !

(assuming you guys have never been here)In terms of diversity, the TC metro is just as diverse as most big cities.....in fact its more like Canada in terms of mindset, which is a good thing.

so what are you guys have to complain about ?

YOU GUYS WILL LOVE IT HERE ! Tongue

aww. <3

dont worry hun. i know how you feel about not being the only chocolate bunny on campus. I go to a PWI as well, but the percentage of blacks is high.

OAN: has anyone noticed like, from many other black girls (most where im at), you get those mean looks and long stares? it's incredibly rude, and most of the people with attitudes i encounter as sadly the same color as me :( is it just me or?

it's not just you some people have pretty nasty attitudes in general. and it's depressing when you encounter a black female with one. And, while there are many black girls without attitudes, there are also a bunch with it too. the worst is where i go to get my hair done. I guess i say "like" a few times too much, and i look like i'm from the suburbs but when I walk in, they just have that mean look like they are judging. Cry

btw you're avi is so cute!

thanks hun! but YEAH! it makes us look bad, girl. i try to teach these ladies some etiquette. and dont let me get started on how most girls (of all colors)DRESS on campus YUCK! just walk outside naked! ...i remember one time these two black girls infront of me were walking slowly and i thought she would badmouth me from behind when i politely walked by but no she turned and said "im sorry, you can go ahead!" i was like CryCryCry muchas gracias. i have to keep hope alive..and the few blacks w/o tudes give me hope!

also OP-a little advice, before you go off, the struggle is real. meaning: you might encounter others with SERIOUS problems you only see in movies. i know that i am trying to push someone(well somebodies) to have better hygiene Dead, as girls, you would think they would know better right?
you might will come across frenemies, get on the financial aid office's CASE. and girl i mean it! i learned my lesson the summer before my freshmen year when i kept calling and checking and the lying, trifling representative (she wasn't an agent, just a student hired to keep others from talking to the professionals) told me that i had everything fine. UM NO--by the next week of school, i owed the school $$$1600!!! the God in me had to keep me from whooping her tail all up and down the delta (i live in mississippi)!!!! watch out for these snakes girl!!
