Impressions: African American First-Year Students' Perceptions of a Predominantly White University.
Douglas, Katie Branch
Journal of Negro Education, v67 n4 p416-31 Fall 1998
Investigated African American college freshmen's impressions of a predominantly white university. Students took photographs illustrating their perceptions and discussed them individually and in groups. Six themes emerged: the campus' physical beauty and immensity; participants' consciousness of being black on campus; the influence of Greek-letter organizations; the prevalence of voluntary racial/ethnic separation; and concerns about preparing for the future.
