|i had the pleasure of heading to the coast to spend the day at the beautiful oak-lined savannah state university for time magazine. the article, by laura fiitzpatrick, uses savannah state as an example of modern school integration, as there is talk of merging this historic black university with a neighboring majority-white school to cut budget costs.
i trudged through the marsh behind the school with a marine science class collecting fauna for a lab, met members from kappa alpha psi fraternity, inc., saw the tail end of a track practice and more. almost every student i spoke to said one of the main reasons for choosing their school was because of pride in its rich african-american history.
