She was disappointed there weren’t as many non-white students as she expected. She has been able to make connections with other students like her, however, through programs that support minority students, such as the Pathways and Aspire programs. “I knew the Muslim community was going to be pretty low here, but I thought there would be more black people here, more Mexican, more of darker races,” she said. “That’s just something that I came to realize — there’s not much darker skinned people here. Don’t get me wrong, I get along with everyone, but in my mind, I thought there would be more darker skinned people here.” (Photo by Tori Schneider)
