  • Dominique Guilford - Loyola Marymount University

    Currently, I am in my second semester of domestic exchange at Loyola Marymount University. This semester, my course load is not as heavy, so I have had more time to explore what LMU has to offer, as well as Los Angeles.
  • Annia Rochester - Duke University

    Annia Rochester Duke University
    Attending Duke University through the Spelman Domestic Exchange Program has been an adventure. The large campus with its diverse student body was intimidating at first, but I eventually found my place amongst the many students.
  • Brianna Boggs - Columbia University

    Spelman Domestic Exchange Brianna Boggs
    It's currently a rainy day in New York City yet I'm still full of gratitude for being able to attend Barnard College at Columbia University. Classes are going smoothly; coming from Spelman prepared me well for the workload and time management necessary.
  • Maxine Ford - New York University

    Maxine Ford New York University
    I never thought that there would be a time when I wanted to trade in my North Carolina leaves, trees, and driveways for New York City traffic, skyscrapers, and subways, but this time came over winter break. As I sat in front of a plate of my grandmother’s pork barbecue (with her secret sauce), I found myself wanting udon noodles from China town.
  • Autumn James - American University

    Autumn James
    My experience at American University is pushing me to step out of my comfort zone even more than I was when I decided to go 10 hours away from my support system and everything I ever knew—that was when I made a choice to change the world and enroll at Spelman College.
  • Zayd Zori - The New School

    Zayd Zori
    Being in New York is an absolutely amazing experience and I genuinely love the New School! I have met some amazing people, seen mind-boggling places, and learned so much from the small amount of time that I have been here.
  • Dominique Guilford - Loyola Marymount University

    Dominique Guilford Loyola Marymount University
    I am more than grateful to be participating in the domestic exchange program at Loyola Marymount University. The campus is located in Los Angeles, California, where I was immediately invited by beautiful palm trees, a breeze from the beach seen outside my on-campus apartment window, and warm weather.
  • Bre'Anna Vinson - American University

    BreAnna Vinson
    Being in the Washington Semester Program (WSP) has pushed me to make connections with people and step out of my comfort zone. So far, my classes have been amazing because we get to meet professionals who offer academic and career advice.
  • Charlotta Blackman - American University

    Charlotta Blackman
    My time in Washington, DC, as part of the Washington Semester Program, was memorable. I loved my internship with the NAACP: Washington Bureau and was saddened to leave after doing research for two and a half months. I spent the majority of my time researching the differences in charter and public schools and the negative impact of competing agendas on the students.
  • Rachel C. Oatis - American University

    Rachel Oatis
    “That sounds like a blast,” yells one of the AU students as I sit in the campus library writing my reflection. Those sentiments perfectly describe my experience in the Washington Semester Program (WSP) at American University so far. My experience with campus life, activities and D.C. city life have been nothing short of amazing!
