Spelman College is a wonderful institution! I visited for the "A Day in Your Life" program and was blown away by the campus life. The students gravitated towards unity and explaining what that meant as a Spelman sister . Spelman offers a number of majors as well as clubs and organizations I cannot wait to be a part of!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I'm sorry to say that one of my biggest regrets has always been that I chose this school. Being from California, I would've been a lot better off staying in-state and getting a more advanced AND less-expensive education there. Friends of mine who also attended school at the AUC agree with me that Spelman and Morehouse do not adequately prepare students to compete in graduate programs at mainstream, more nationally-recognized institutions. You'll feel like a big fish while attending the AUC but many students find out the hard way that they're ill-prepared for grad school. Spelman COLLEGE may be the elite institution within the HBCU community, but it sorely pales in comparison to major UNIVERSITIES. This is especially true if you're pursuing a degree in technology, science, and/or finance. Spelman is simply not the best education for those fields. Rather, Spelman's strength seemed to be limited to the liberal arts arena. This was my observation (and disappointing experience) as a Natural Science - Chemistry student there. Researching how (if) Spelman ranks in your desired field should be the number one priority when trying to decide if it's the right institution for you. I also agree with what other reviewers have said about the administration. That's an additional and significant problem at Spelman. The administration has always been known for being sub-par, un-responsive, slooooow, and unprofessional at times. A bonus for attending Spelman is that you are presented with an opportunity to learn how to be resourceful - if you want to get things done.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Spelman College is that the academia is amazing, and they make sure they recruit professors that genuinely care about and love teaching. The classes are also small which I love because it allows us to have a more personal connection with the professors which also makes it easier to be heard. The only downside would be the dorms as most of them don't have A.C and we aren't allowed to have a personal refrigerator, microwave to have access to other food besides what's provided on campus. Other than dorm life I love it here!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Academically I believe that Spelman is the perfect school to be at. The professors at Spelman College all have a true passion for the particular subject that they have chosen to teach. These teachers really love what they do which makes the subjects that they are teaching even more understanding and interesting to sit through. The cafeteria is where I believe needs the most work. The food being served can be very unappealing, which causes most students to spend unnecessary cash on purchasing outside food when we should be able to fully depend on going to the cafeteria to have a good meal. Although the cafeteria and the food should be better, I truly believe that this is a school that everyone should attend. While attending Spelman, you’re able to find the voice that you thought was buried deep within you. Here is the place where you’re able to find your true self.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Spelman is a good school for many people, but it is definitely not for everyone. I recommend everyone do their research before coming here. They don’t advertise the dirty silverware and how hard it is to get in touch with financial aid. If you have family who attended Spelman or Morehouse, that will definitely make your experience better. Also, Spelman is really big on community service, include your community service involvement in you admissions essay for more money on your financial aid package!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Spelman College is one of high quality. Not only has it been an exceptional school for people of color but it is a school where you can experience an overall inclusive college experience. There may be some lows, but the highs of attending this school combined with the campus life and students that attend here cancel out any negatives you may experience. Everyone is so welcoming and engaging that even if you're visiting, they make sure to help you feel included no matter what.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

At first I was reluctant to attend an all women institution, but after completing my first year, I've come to love my college. The culture surrounds you on and off campus, which is great especially for a black student who previously attended a PWI. Spelman and the AUC in general provides a wonderful environment for black students to prosper. I love it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

overall it is a wonderful place to be filled with tons of opportunities. many students get internships and jobs during the summer and throughout the school year, which encourages other students to work their hardest in school. the sisterhood is real and everyone is always quick to help each other.
