Attend Spel-Bound

Registration opens February 2017!

We look forward to hosting you and your family in Atlanta for Spel-Bound 2017! 

This two-day overnight experience is designed to serve as a special introduction for newly admitted students and their families. Recognizing your college options are many, our students, faculty, staff and alumnae are anxious to share why we think Spelman is the right choice for you.

During these two days you will be able to explore Spelman’s 39-acre historical campus, hear what’s it’s like being a Spelman student during SisterChat, attend classes with your Spel-Bound hostess, and maybe even find your roommate! 

Again, congratulations on your admission and I look forward to seeing you in the spring! 

In Sisterhood,

Tiffany Nelson, Class of 2000
Director of Admissions
