3.74 Average Rating
spelman is a wonderful school with many great opportunities that many do not know about. make sure you network with your professors, your financial aid advisors/scholarship coordinators, and the career offices.
Saleena from Harrisburg, PA
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.
