5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I honestly think the girls here make the school. I was originally nervous about going to an all-girls HBCU because of all of the typical reasons (drama, cattiness,and complete isolation from guys). However my experience at this school has been almost completely opposite. Sure there is drama on campus, just like any other campus, but you typically experience that if you put yourself in those situations. The girls here are typically very nice and have beautiful personalities. This experience has taught me that diversity is not skin deep and it has allowed me (and many others) to continue to refine our personalities by being more positive and outreaching. Many girls say when you are accepted into Spelman, you are accepted into a sisterhood, like a sorority, and that is definitely pretty true. Oh and as far as being isolated from guys, with the exception of NSO week, with the guys at Morehouse and Clark being only a walkway away, are always on campus (when hours allow).

Guys & Girls: Guys and girls are overall friendly. However, the main focus for me going to school is to get an education, the other things fall into place later. However, dating/social life on campus is seen in many students.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.

Freshman year, students tend to make the friends that will stick with them throughout their time at Spelman. You can meet some upperclasswomen in some of your courses who will let you into their group of friends. The same thing is true with students who have the same majors, as you will find those who study together, socialize together. Joining clubs and staying active will help you to branch out.
Hookups or Relationships?

Best Places to Meet Guys/Girls

You'll have the ladies who wear sweatpants everyday and the ones who prefer to dress business casual. You'll find tank tops, skirts, and sandals in the summer. You'll have those who wear Afrocentric garb and others who design their own clothes. It is like a multicultural mall full of different styles on Spelman's campus.
