LatinitasMagazine.org - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

The following blog title is none other than my favorite singers, Sam Cooke. I start my incredible journey as a virtual intern specifically today. I am not ready for the challenges ahead, but I suppose if I could just pretend that I am, then surely it won't be long until I am seeing the ending of my journey.

Speaking of college journeys, my college, Wilson College will end its 100+ years as a women's institution to a co-ed institution.

Many young woman here feel that all the protesting that they did last semester went to deaf ears and I don't blame them. I feel that with an all female campus we are better able to understand the professor on a personal level just because they tend to be a majority female.

Let's just say I am glad I will not be here as my school transitions into this next chapter. I  CHOSE Wilson for its liberal arts program and its all girl campus. I see how much more confident I am talking to other women. All in all I am so glad that we will incorporate men slowly so as not to scare others too soon.

The school will consider them alums beginning Fall 2013. Then we will let them reside on campus at the start of Fall 2014. I just wish and hope that women who have been sexually traumatized feel the power to voice their opinion if anything of that sort of thing happens in the coming years. Dear, God how  I hope these things happen. In spite of my negative view over the coming men, I wish to say that if you have not taken a part of a institution that is an all female campus you may be missing out on the work ethic women are capable of. The competition and strive to be better citizens of the countrys is beyond belief.

I leave you with Cooke's lyrics of changing times...

"Oh there are times I thought I couldn't last for long

But now I think I'm able to carry on

It's been a long, a long time coming"
