Health & Safety: There are a lot of safety call boxes. There has been reports of assault and rapes of Spelman girls....

Campus Housing: Rooms are very small with no air condition system and community-style bathroom, but honestly the culture and social atmosphere makes up for all of it. Spelman is really all about sisterhood. I'll take that over anything.

Health & Safety: Within the whole AUC, there are constant sexual assault panels that tells students all the information we need to know. Men are not allowed on Spelman campus after 11:45 to ensure our safety.

Overall Experience: HBCU's already do not receive the credit they deserve since we are Black Colleges, but out of all of them, Spelman are one of the three HBCU's that actually does receive its credit. People come to campus all the time recruiting Spelman Women.

Overall Experience: Being that I attended CAU my freshman year and am transferring into Spelman in fall 2016, I only took one class at Spelman. My theatre class was amazing and my favorite class. My professor was very creative and taught us life skills.

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.
