Overall Experience: Spelman is a wonderful school. Like any other school, it has it flaws but those are easily overlooked when focusing on what I gained in my first year. Some of my best experiences came from that school during my freshman year and I am excited to return this fall. My school is unique because of it's history and tradition, and how so many women value this tradition and carry it for generations.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My experience with my instructors has been amazing. I have never had instructors challenge me and uncover my academic potential. I feel stronger in my writing and speaking. The curriculum in African Diaspora and the World lifted the veil off of Africa's rich history and gave me valuable information that helped me locate and break through the walls of my societal limitations.

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.
