    Sometimes the dining hall serves good and pleasant food but sometimes they don't. Every Wednesday is fried chicken Wednesday during lunch and on Fridays they serve fish. In lower Manley, there's a Subway, Starbucks, Jamba Juice, and Grill Works that serve a variety of food too!

    The food and dining accommodations are very nice. All the students have the choice of dining dollars and cafeteria food. As a freshman student the 14 a week meal plan with 200 plus dining dollars is highly recommended. Also the hours of the food court down stairs is quite helping.

    Dining in the cafeteria is decent.There are other places to eat on campus like Subway, Starbucks, Jamba Juice, Grille works and AFC Sushi. Most people eat at one of those places whenever they get tired of the cafeteria food.

    We almost always have the same food all the time. They make foods that don't go together available on certain days.The only time we have really good food is when we have special occasions like a day in the life of Spelman/Spelbound. You get tired of the cafe eventually. I most eat off campus, in the java cafe downstairs with starbucks, sushi, grille works and jamba juice. I even order out on occasions from grub hub.

    I have been doing a lot of researching and looking at other individuals reviews on Spelmen . This is just one of the colleges I have been rally wanting to look more into . I am absolutely in love with the Greek life stroll teams . I really want to be a stroller when I get into college . But I'm going to keep doing my research on Spelmen they seem to have a lot to offer which I like . I'm only a freshman in high school so I'm really starting to look more into colleges that I would like to attend and Spelmen is #1 on my list . I'm love doing people's hair and cosmetology is another option I was looking forward to doing . But I'm going to look more in to Spelmen and see what else they have to offer .

    I am not to sure about the greek life as much because I am a sophomore and have not been exposed to all the greeks that are offered here on cmapus besides the main ones such as Delta Sigma Theta, Alpha Kappa Alpha, Gamma Sigma Sigma,Zeta Phi Beta, and Sigma Gamma Rho. But when I see them strolling and their event on their weeks it seems like they have a true sisterhood bond that can not be broken.

    Greek life is very big here, most events everybody is out trying to see stroll teams. At times each dorm seems like a little sorority.

    I don't know anything about that. You will have to figure that out for yourself. All I can tell you is that all of the sororities held on HBCU's are held here.
