5 College Freshman

Party Scene: AUC is so live! Parties are frequent and convent. If they're not walking distance there are shuttles that give you rides to the club. Always a good time!

Off-Campus Dining: Grubhub is a great option for off campus dining. They have really late hours, really good food and they deliver!

Administration: They're okay I guess. Not too much. Not too little.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The only time it's good is either on Wednesdays or special events on campus.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's a great idea to live on campus, especially Freshman year. All the events and classes are easy to access. I advise for Freshman to live in Manley Hall. It is the first building on the campus and not a far walk to return to home from parties/events.

Party Scene: most students go to college town or mansion

Off-Campus Dining: Students live by off-campus dining since the cafe closes at 7pm

Administration: i dont know what to say

Campus Housing: 1st year dorms suck...there is no a/c. For the amount of money you are paying the cafe sucks too. But you're paying for the experience everyone is a big family and we all encourage each other to push and thrive in whatever they want to do.

Off-Campus Housing: I have not had the luxury of living off campus yet but there are lots of nice places nearby. From my experience I have heard that CollegeTown is the worst place to stay. I think a lot of people choose to stay in Westmar or other housing places near Georgia State.

Administration: The rules are there to keep you safe!

Scholarships: I have a horrible time receiving aid and for me it is an ongoing process. Everyone has their own way of providing for school, so I wouldn't say it is difficult for everyone. The financial aid officers are not the problem, the problem is the amount of aid that is being given out.

Party Scene: Check out College Town and Parsons. Unless it is a really big party like Welcome to Atlanta or Toga DO NOT pay for a party. There is a lot of free kickbacks and house parties that you can go to that are local.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: In the cafe there has been a lot of times when the food was horrible. I do however enjoy brunch on Saturdays and Sundays and they also make good omelets. I liked going to Lower Manley a lot sometimes the service was very slow, but it was not that bad. Since going to Spelman I have became a big fan of Starbucks and that is my favorite place to get a quick drink or a snack when I am on the go.

Campus Housing: The rooms are not that big. I stayed in a double and we were pretty close together when it came to living headquarters. I had a problem with my roommate and I wanted a roommate swap and the housing office were not quick to respond to the situation. When I finally was able to move out they moved me into a triple which was a lot more spacious. In the doubles they have walk in closets and in the triples they don't. As far as the bathroom it was not always kept clean and it was not because of the cleaning staff it was mostly a problem of girls hygiene. They were not always cleaning up behind themselves and that was a big issue. The housing process was easy, but we were given lottery times and I had an early time, but when I went to select a room only one room was available, which was okay for me. I do know other people who had later times and were not able to get a room at all so they ended up with temporary housing or on the waiting list for temporary housing.

Campus Food: The dining hall sometimes has good food. Has really stepped up the health factor. I actually lost about 15 pounds instead of gaining freshman 15. The food court is awesome, but always crowded. Morehouse is right outside the gate too and they have awesome places to eat too!

Campus Housing: The dorms for freshman are ok. Considering it's the lowest class I'd say they are adequate. The upperclassmen dorms are awesome and soooo beautiful.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Spelman students generally embrace both the good and the bad elements of their college experience and emerge with a positive overall view. The sisterhood, challenges, and nurturing environment are aspects of their time at Spelman that they cherish the most. Many express a love for Spelman that one could conclude transcends the educational experience and speaks more to a bond formed with the institution, the faculty, and their peers. Spelman is definitely a small school, so there are a few students who may feel like they missed out on the advantages of a big, coed, institution. For others, they like the fact that they had the access to the other campuses of the Atlanta University Center but were always able to return to the gates of Spelman. Spelman is seen as a journey into womanhood for many young ladies. It is also an opportunity for many students to meet other women of color like themselves, for the first time in their lives. As was mentioned in the Diversity section, Spelman brings together a plethora of women who might not otherwise have met or ever discovered the common bonds they share despite their different upbringings and backgrounds. Academically, Spelman ranks high and has been recognized in the media for producing successful women who go on to be recognized in all fields of study, industry, and business.
