On the campus of a college that was founded over 100 years ago, you should expect some older, smaller buildings, but the facilities on Spelman's campus are mixed when it comes to design and modern amenities. The Manley Student Center is home to the cafeteria and a social area, and most students find it a nice escape from the dormitory. Sisters Chapel recently had a much-needed facelift, and students and alumni are both pleased with the results. This facility has a great deal of history behind it and is home to most of the schools major presentations and entertainment events.
Students complain most about the gym, as it is relatively small and offers limited equipment. Some students still find that they have to join the local Bally's or LA Fitness in order to get the type of workout they need. Though Spelman's campus doesn't offer a great deal of variety when it comes to facilities and day-to-day activities, there are always events being put on that create a buzz on campus. Also, the proximity of the campus to other schools in the Atlanta University Center gives students the freedom to explore and enjoy facilities they like better elsewhere. Spelman is a work in progress, and students can expect that there will be more renovations to come to make the campus competitive with other schools.
