The dating scene on Spelman and in the surrounding Atlanta University Center is always full of surprises. There are definitely a number of people looking to date or find serious relationships, and there is another group of both men and women looking to hook up for the short term. The schools in the AUC have a history that goes back pretty far, and there are some "old school" stereotypes that have survived the test of time through word of mouth. Most people who spread the stereotypes about Morehouse men, Spelman women, or CAU students probably don't have friends outside of their own institution. Be careful not to fall prey to rumors and gossip.
The consensus seems to be that guys and girls are nice, but anyone can be up to no good. Taking time to get to know someone is advised. Spelman, as well as the other schools in the AUC, advocate safe sex and provide students with information and contraception. It is probably safe to say that there isn't a great deal of sexual activity between men and women on Spelman's campus, due to the fact that men are not allowed to spend the night. Also, once you live off campus, you can pretty much see whoever you want whenever you want. Overall, though, there seems to be no short supply of attractive, eligible, and ambitious bachelors.
