SF State to UN Reno: This Is How We Do It
March 30, 2004 3:19 PM
Ten students from the University of Nevada Reno took a break from their tour of the SF State black studies department for a quick luncheon on Tuesday.
As students enjoyed turkey sandwiches and caesar salads, members of the ethnic studies department and a student in the program took 30 minutes to answer questions and describe the cultural atmosphere at the campus.
“The professors here are really open to students,” said a black studies senior from Oakland who preferred to remain nameless.
“Part of your education is in class, the other part is outside,” he said.
Dr. Wade Nobles, a professor of ethnic studies, explained one of the benefits of having a black studies department. Every year Nobles, who is a tribal chief in the West African country of Ghana, takes students to experience their homeland.
