That's the case for 99% of the HBCUs that have graduate programs. But the mixture doesn't come from whites as much as from "Asian" groups.

You're talking about work.

I'm talking about your NPHC interactions.

Run along, attention whore.

But I guess if I wanted go out of state and couldn't get in to the top schools, why not? Sometimes you just want to leave. (Although, honestly, I think I'd go to somewhere with a beach or some sort of attractions, not Statesboro ... )

Yeah, I think it probably boils down to them visiting and just feeling that it is the right place, but it makes one wonder.

We have several members in or around the grad chapter who are not African-American. I think the best thing would be to keep an open-mind about the culture and doing new things.

Try not to act like you don't belong. I was at a step show a few months back and saw a caucasian soror who got out there and did her thing, so I guess it really depends on the individual and how comfortable they are with the situation.

I really agree with that. At HU, I can remember three very well-known and popular nonblack male students ... one asian, two white. I'm pretty sure most everyone liked them because they were a) comfortable around black people and b) comfortable in their own skin (i.e. not acting stereotypically "black").

Its less mysterious when its based on locale or other connections. I just am interested in white folks from like California who up and decide to go to Howard. Of course, I'm also interested in people from like NY who end up at NM State without a scholarship or other connections. People just sometimes seem random with their college selections.

There is a FIJI down here from New York. I have no idea how he found his way down here. I think he just wanted to go to Texas. Great guy though. Would never know he was from New York.

Every NPHC organization has caucasian members. I think I know the frat you are talking about. He shot our pictures when our boule was in Cali in 2002. He is a good photographer.

I always refer to Zeta Phi Beta as the "chocolate zeta" and Zeta Tau Alpha at the "vanilla zeta". I wonder what you call a white ZPhiB. A white chocolate zeta?

Thank You for making this point!

It has to be up to The Individual where He or She feels comfortable.

I do not see the big difference of Black going to White or White going with Black as some people seem to want to make it!


If, there is a switching over from Color, then let them do it!

It is non of anyones business here is it?

You need to be washed in the blood of the lamb.

I want unfamiliar settings as far as away I can get. For me, college will not only be about academic education, but learning to stand on my own (with the exception of finances) and proving to others that I can as well.
