    I love the campus so much !! I've visited at least three times and it helps that my parents are alumnae of Spelman and Morehouse so I can get on often. The people are so friendly and the women act like ladies, it embodies what I want to be.

    I love being on campus everyone is different and everyone is special in their own way. Spelman takes the extra effort to make sure the students have a great time on campus. They even have an organization that is designed to do just that, plan fun stuff on campus for the students. Whether is a movie night or even free mani and pedi's during homecoming for all the students.

    There is absolutely without a doubt NO PLACE like the AUC.(Atlanta universitty center) The events, and the relationships you will build here will inspire you to grow in civility and heart. I've never in my life witnessed such an awesome bonding experience!
