Spelman College Reviews
Review Spelman College
I enjoyed that Spelman College is a college for women that are like minded and driven. There is a true familial element to Spelman College and the support system by the faculty is very genuine. There are so many campus wide activities and clubs to be involved in and the sisterhood and friendships that develop there are for a lifetime. I know that there have been quite a few food options added to the campus and that is something that I can appreciate. During the time that I spent at Spelman, the food options were not that appealing to me and was something that I wanted to see changed. Since then, there has been new additions and I hear they are great!
There are plenty of options in regards to pretty much anything that you want to do. The workload is not that bad and it makes it a million times easier if you decide to get a study buddy that can split the load with you. There are a lot of opportunities to do abroad and domestic studies which I think are vital to the growth of an individual. Spelman College also challenges the notion that all black people are the same. There are plenty of people from different socioeconomic groups as well as people with cultural, linguistic, and ideological differences. I am proud to be a Spelmanite and I really love my HBCU!
Spelman College is an amazing place for me! My overall experience has been stressful, but beneficial in so many ways. I joined the dance team here, which has helped me grow physically, emotionally, and mentally in personal ways and in dance. My favorite experience so far, is studying late at night for a math exam. It was hard, but it taught me how much more capable I really am, and how much I can accomplish no matter the time span is. What makes my school unique is the way it mentally changes you for the better. Spelman implants a mindset that, in order to be great, you have to work twice as hard and be the best in anything you do. One cannot expects big or grand results doing minor work. If I could do it all over, I would still choose Spelman because that is how great of a school it is.
