I think it was separate but equal, to borrow an old term.  I think that we were teammates, and we did our time, just like with anybody else.  You had your roommates, and that’s who you hung out with most of the time, and then, speaking for me, my spring of my sophomore year at Virginia, I played lacrosse, so I met a whole new group of people.  There were no Black guys in lacrosse and took a long time for lacrosse to come around, but they have now, and hopefully will continue.  It’s still pretty much a white preppy person’s sport.
