Article "Recruiting Program Brings More Blacks"

Description

This Collegian article, written by Linda Tatum, a staff writer, is about the University's attempts to recruit more black students. Thomas N. Pollard, Jr., the director of admissions for Richmond College, said that social life for black students needed to be improved, so that those students, pleased with their experiences at the university, would recruit their friends. Pollard said that the university had organized a Black Student Day in the spring of 1971 to recruit local juniors, from whom the University hoped to receive applications. No specific programs had been created to ensure a more diversified student body. Stanley Davis and Belinda Carr, two of the university's approximately 12 black students, agreed that there were few social activities available to black students, while Norman Williams -- a black student and a member of the track team -- and Beverly Robinson -- another black student -- expressed disappointment at the low number of black students attending the University.
