My Rock: Black Women Attending Graduate School at a Southern Predominantly White University
Alexander, Quentin R.; Bodenhorn, Nancy
Journal of College Counseling, v18 n3 p259-274 Oct 2015
Participants in this phenomenological study were 11 Black women who received an undergraduate degree from a historically Black college or university and were currently attending graduate school at a southern predominantly White university. This study investigated the adjustment experiences of these women to life on a southern predominantly White campus. Through analysis of participant interview transcripts and demographic questionnaires, support systems emerged as a critical factor in each student's experience, with themes focused on mentors, family and friends, and romantic relationships.
