In this week's edition of University College, we take a look at adulting. A made up word, the trials, tribulations and triumph are too real for most of us. Is there a manual for how to adult properly? Further, what are the trademarks of being a successful adult? Is it owning a home, making and keeping friends, handling your money properly? For everyone, the proper version of being an adult means different things.
We ask specific questions this week, including:
1) Is there any shame in living with your parents past your 30s?
2) Should you have an emergency fund?
3) Is it better to rent or own your vehicle/home?
4) Is making friends in your 30s as important as it was in your teens and 20s?
We hope you'll join us for this interesting discussion.
Welcome back to University College! Recently, a discussion has re-ignited about how to join together the different parts of the African diaspora in America. Black Americans feel that their brothers and sisters from Africa judge them—while many first-generation Africans in America have the belief that Black Americans have squandered opportunities. In reality, we each have something to learn from one another and ultimately share the same cultural space. This week, we are joined by Dr. Nehdia Mumuni. Dr. Mumuni is a first generation American of Ghanaian descent. She talks to us about growing up in two cultures, and the differences she observed in Black Americans and her own culture.
