Black women at Wellesley?

<p>How's the african american student population at Wellesley?
Do they tend to only hangout with each other...do they blend in well with the rest of the population?
Do they have a prominent existence on campus?</p>

<p>um...are they any blacks at wellesley at all? o_O
i mean anyone can answer the question who has visited the campus before...</p>

<p>I am not a Wellesley student so I don't know what the campus is really like, but on one of the pamphlets Wellesley sent me, it says African-American: 6 percent. (and Asian American, 26 percent, International 8 percent, Latina percent, White 43 percent.) 6 percent is a very small number but it's to be expected, I guess. But on an interesting note, my tour guide (Temple Price, who also has a blog on the admissions site) was black.</p>

<p>I'm a parent and have only been on campus once, 1 1/2 years ago when we took our daughter out. I think it's pretty multicultural; my daughter, who is white, has a roommate from China, and her boyfriend (from MIT) is from Africa and is black. From her photographs and conversations with us she has friends from all over the world and all over the U.S.</p>

<p>Hi! If you are concerned that people may be discriminated against by their ethnicity, nothing can be further from the truth. Wellesley is a small school representing over 70 different countries and every state, and is probably one of the most multicultural schools globally.
In high school, I used to be friends with predominantly Asians, but I take a look around here and I'm friends with literally all ethnicities. Going back to your post, two of my best friends here are African American and I have never once felt that they had difficulty blending in on campus. Even the thought of it is very intangible to me, especially since I feel like the blending of all different types of people from all these different types of places is what makes Wellesley, Wellesley</p>

<p>alright thannks!
im thinking about transferring there if i dont like johns hopkins</p>

<p>I met a black volleyball player when I visited Wellesley last year. Walking into the campus dining room, you can see a sizable population of black females (although they usually sat with each other).</p>

<p>And possibly, Ill be there! (As a black female)</p>

<p>^lol they always stick together.</p>
