Domestic Exchange Student Reflections

Kapri Washington - Spelman College

Spelman CollegeAt first, I was a little overwhelmed by how many Black people there were around as a student that had attended a PWI for 2 years. Over time, it wasn’t hard for me to adjust. The students and faculty at Spelman (and in the AUC) are very welcoming.

My classes have been going well and I love that most are rooted in Black (women's) history as opposed to the white (man's) history that I am used to learning. To critique the Exchange Program, after orientation it felt like we were just let on our own which could be very difficult for a person that isn’t sociable or used to being around close friends/ family. However, the other exchange girls and I exchanged numbers the day of orientation and we make it a point to meet up often. Nevertheless, I wish there was a system in which each of us got paired with a Spelman student who would continue to show us the ropes. It would also be nice if there were mandatory events for us exchange students to ensure that we maintain a bond.
