Domestic Exchange Student Reflections

Naomi Steplight - Dartmouth College

Naomi Steplight at Dartmouth CollegeI am so pleased that I chose to study at Dartmouth for the fall. The experiences I gained through my classes were unlike anything I’d be able to experience at Spelman, and I am grateful for them. I got to meet some amazing Black students by living in a predominantly Black dorm and being an active member in spaces made for and by Black students.

Being in predominantly Black spaces made me feel like I wasn’t as far away from home as I really was. Also, getting a PWI experience taught me a lot about how to communicate and interact with non-black people in academic and group settings. I already had some experience with this through my internships, but my term at Dartmouth made me even more equipped for those settings.

Though my move out process was abrupt, I will miss the friends I made in New Hampshire! I’m already thinking about visiting them again in the spring. I encourage other Spelman students to consider Dartmouth for their domestic exchange school if they aren’t already.
