    The experiences at Spelman is one of a kind. You'll have some great moments there and learn so much in and outside the classroom.

    Spelman is not cheap at all, but it is definitely worth the money. The experience you get at Spelman is truly special, and there are so many opportunities this college offers. Since it's a small college, I believe that we as students get special treatments/perks. Try to work with the financial aid office, and start living in the scholarship office! Work hard on scholarship applications, and try to minimize the amount you have to pay by all means.
