What Students Are Saying

3.74 Average Rating
Spelman College is a private, independent, historically black liberal arts women's college, although men from Morehouse and Clark Atlanta University take courses here. There is much diversity here at Spelman, although from the outside it may not appear that way. Women who are going somewhere start at Spelman, it's a wonderful learning environment and a great launching pad into the professional world.

Academically it is very challenging and very expensive. The campus atmosphere and social setting is amazing because everything is convenient and the administrators and students are willing to help if you are in need. Overall it is worth coming here.
