Be sure that gets in, will you?" So opened an interview with Belinda D'Costa of London, briefly Switzerland and one generation from India. Belinda, a freshman psychology major, claimed that she had been pegged as Latin American, Italian, "Mexican with a British accent" and almost anything but what she is. What she is, is Anglo-Indian, a member of a select group from Indian society that was absorbed into the British leading class during Britain's col- onization of India. Eventually, they achieved a status among the Britons that alienated them from their own countrymen. Belinda, who was born in London, said she loves England, but thinks "it's going downhill. There's a lot of racism. For instance, I was walking home one day and kids shouted 'Hey Paki! Go homel' Do you know what that's like?" So how did an Anglo-Indian from London end up majoring in psychology in a private university in West Texas? Belinda said she came to ACU because she had "heard about the green grass, many trees and warm sunshinef' Then she added, "Seriously, because I wanted to study in a Christian college." She learned of ACU from John Howard, an ACU student who par- ticipated in a 1979 summer mission campaign in England. She entered the United States with a student visa, but said she had no restrictions on what she did, "just that I'll be a good student." During holidays Belinda stayed with her U.S. guardians, the Earl Tomlinsons in Dallas. Does she have any regrets about coming here? "Sometimes, when a research paper is overdue. But lim loving this place and its people . . . They keep me from running homef' The freshman who claimed that building relationships was her hobby said she "found real happiness here, thanks to a bunch of fun people live gotten to know." - Amy Hatfield
