The Experiences and Adjustment Problems of Africans at a Historically Black Institution
Blake, Andrew C.
College Student Journal, v40 n4 p808-813 Dec 2006
Although many studies have looked at adjustment problems of foreign students, there is very little literature on African students studying specifically at a historically black institution. The purpose of this study was to describe the experiences and investigate the factors that cause adjustment problems for African students enrolled in the Spring 2004 semester at Delaware State University. Participants in this study included 57 of the 69 African students enrolled at Delaware State University that semester. The three methods employed in this study were questionnaire, focus groups, and observation. Contrary to some of the findings on similar studies, analysis for this study revealed that the African students did not have any problem with the English language and understanding instructors.
