Cheryl Dunye (b. 1966) is an academic and filmmaker, whose work focuses on issues of sexuality and race, particularly those surrounding the lives of black lesbians. She currently teaches at San Francisco State University.

Her 1996 film, The Watermelon Woman, has made history by being the first full-length feature film directed and written by a black lesbian about the subject. Another film, Stranger Inside, focuses on the experiences of African-American lesbians in prison. She has won numerous awards for her work, particularly in recognition of their promotion of LGBT themes.

Virtual College Visits!

Thanks to a lot of lovely people, Virtual College Visits can officially start!

What is this post?

This post is a way to connect students who are unable to visit a certain college with someone who has visited that college.

Why?

There are so many things about a college that can’t be learned by looking at their website, or comparing statistics. Yet, at the same time, it is impossible for most students to visit every college that they’re interested in. This is a tool that will hopefully help bridge that gap!

How do I use this?

Think of a school that you’re interested in that you probably won’t be able to visit. Then, scan this (alphabetical) list of schools to see if it’s listed. If it is, congrats! The url(s) listed next to it belong to a person/people who have visited that school. They have contacted me saying that they are willing to talk about their experience at that school with other potential students. Feel free to shoot them a message explaining that you saw their url on this post and want to learn about x school (You should probably specify what school because most of the contributors have visited more than one school).

This is cool! Can I contribute?

Absolutely! Send me (appblrgirl) a message with the schools you would be willing to talk about with others. I will continue to update this post periodically.

Unfortunately because of school and various life things, I won’t be making any more updates to this post for the foreseeable future.

The school I want to visit isn’t on this list!

That sucks. Keep checking back as the list gets updated, you never know when your potential school will show up!

You can also message me with additional questions if you have any.

A huge thank you to everyone who has contributed so far, and good luck to all of you!

P.S. To avoid a large number of schools in the ‘U’ section, any schools starting with ‘University of’ have been reformatted. e.g. Virginia, University of

Taco Truck (East LA)

That’s my friend in the center, Alonzo Campos. He is currently earning his PhD in Education at Claremont Graduate University. He teaches Chicano Studies courses at Cal State Channel Islands.

I’m a California Central Valley native. Like most Mexican-American kids I grew up with tacos and baseball. My parents are from Michoacán. I’m culturally Mexican and civically American.

I’m a first generation college student. I earned a Physics B.S. from Cal-Poly, San Luis Obispo. I earned a Physics M.S. from San Francisco State University. At UC Davis, I recently completed an Electrical Engineering Ph.D., with a concentration in solar energy and business development.

SO for my final for sound design 1 we had to recreate the sounds and voices for a movie scene of our choosing. Me and my group did Big Hero 6! We worked hella hard on this and had fun while doing so. Enjoy!
