Greek life is a clear and dynamic presence on Spelman's campus, and they are responsible for a number of activities that promote sisterhood and community service. From forums on relationships to politics, they keep the campus engaged in all that is relevant to African American women. Spelman keeps a close watch on Greek activities and only allows women who have reached sophomore status to pledge. They also cap the number of students who can pledge in any given year. There are no Greek houses on campus, but many Greeks congregate at Market Fridays in the student center. You can spot them in their jackets or wearing the colors of their organizations. Many times, sorority and visiting fraternity members from Morehouse or Clark Atlanta University will engage in impromptu displays on campus. There are annual AUC step shows, and Spelman's chapters have a history of competing and sometimes taking home top honors and bragging rights when it is all over.
The Greeks are known to throw the best parties and social events as well, especially during Homecoming. It is not unusual for alumnae to come back for Homecoming and ask "Where is the Delta party this year?" or "Did the AKAs win the step show?" All of the women at the school are united through their Spelman experiences and traditions.
