Fifth Year

College of Engineering


“(1) My freshman year in Chemistry 111 lab there were 2 notes someone left in my chem drawer. The first note came in the 1st third of the year. It referred to me as a nigger and said I didn’t belong in the class and even encourage me to leave before they forced me out. The second note was the last lab of the school year. The note referred to me as a nigger again and said I was lucky because this was the last lab.

(2) A math professor my sophomore year comically explained why he did not understand that how he had to recognize the whole month February as Black History Month. He explained he wanted a whole month dedicated to him for being white to a class of nearly 200, which was in EE.”
