Title

Article "Recruiting Trouble Cited By Students"

Description

This article published December 7th, 1978 called “Recruiting Trouble Cited By Students” discusses the frustration of black students at University of Richmond in regards to the imbalance between the number of black men versus black women enrolled. At the time of the article, there were forty five black students and only six of those were women. Additionally, the article argues that the reason for the inequality is because the University directs its recruitment of black students towards athletes. Michelle Nickins said, “This school is locked into the type of person it will accept; that reputation gets around. Blacks who attend the University have to be looking for problems to tackle.” Other students that were interviewed talked about problems like, being the only black student in a classroom, or being told that there were more black students on campus by the University then there actually were.
