What is your overall opinion of this school?

As soon as I enter the gates at Spelman College, I am at home. The campus is the perfect size to feel close-knit, but I still see new faces almost every day. When I look around Spelman, I see versions of myself within the beautiful, bright, and eager-to-learn young women around me. Spelman has taught me my worth as well as gifted me with a diverse curriculum that makes me want to spend every minute learning. The amount of learning that my college provides me goes so much farther beyond the classroom due to its variety of extracurricular activities. I am a Spanish and Sociology double major, who is also interested in visual arts and business. Each one of those interests is vastly different from the others, but I know that Spelman will provide me with a platform and all of the resources I will need to succeed in all aspects of my career. I do not know where I would be without Spelman.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Attending Spelman College was one of the best decisions of my life. I have grown exponentially as an adult and as a person from the atmosphere of attending this institution and all that I have already learned. Sisterhood is extremely important to the students of Spelman College, and we make sure are inclusive of the diversity in people. Being a liberal arts school, we have to take mandatory classes that will expand our horizons of knowledge and not subject us to only one path of learning. We must take an Africa Diaspora of the World class, a language, a computer science class, a fine arts class, a science class, and two wellness classes to ensure we are well rounded individuals. Spelman prepares us as black women for the adult world and teaches us how to be confident in our skin considering we are the most oppressed individuals in society. There are also a multitude of organizations students can join to become involved in the campus community. In addition, Spelman opens the doors for us to obtain jobs and internships by bringing corporations to the college or hosting annual career fairs. Overall, Spelman College is a great school and I plan to further my education, seek out opportunities, and continue to grow as an individual during my time there.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am currently a transfer student and I will say my personal experience at this institution has been a huge disappointment. I think the administrative staff is lacking in more ways than one. They lose your paperwork, even if you send the information ahead of time. They failed to put your transcripts into the system. They don't even have academic advisor for transfer students. This school is more based on organization than academic success in my opinion. Expect for administrative staff to give you the run around if you are a transfer student. They cater more to their freshman students than students in general. They are very uninformative to transfer students with what to do and how to effectively coexist with other students. When I think of Spelman the environment it is very unorganized. I expected better considering the amount of money they receive from each student. You will have the HBCU experience but expect to have to attend Packhard Hall frequently to get your financial matters or even grades put into the system accurately. Most people think this is great and it might have some great attributes, however being built in 1881 and having over 500 millions dollars in endowment they would be more efficient in helping students, food choices and housing.

There is deep sisterhood at Spelman College, everyone including the staff and faculty are very friendly. However cost of attendance is very high, and a lot of people take out loans. Very inviting community in the AUC, get relationship with brother college Moreshouse College.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe that Spelman College is a wonderful college that embodies women empowerment and the pursuit of confidence. I would change that most of the dorms have no a.c and that we have to use community bathrooms. Other than that I believe that Spelman is an overall great place to go to find your purpose and an one of a kind education tailored to you.

its honestly a great school. I think the freshmen housing needs air conditioning thought. It does get extremely hot. Other than that Spelman is a great college to go to. They focus and take their academics seriously and don't like to play around. This college is my top favorite

What is your overall opinion of this school?

A welcoming historically black college that allows women of different backgrounds to come together and share a positive experience. The professors are extremely educated and qualified to teach their various studies. Some classes are even shared with Morehouse, another HBCU for males.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The classes that I have taken are tremendously helpful. Spelman is the number one HBCU for a reason. The anticipation for rooming was too long but worth it. I hope my major is not terrible, but I heard Spelman has phenomenal teachers​. I felt right at home with Spelman and I feel as if I am a perfect fit.
