Current Students: Student Profiles

Student Profiles

A Spelman student will come to campus with diverse aspirations, goals and interests.  Throughout her time here, she will follow an academic, social, and cultural path uniquely hers – rooted in a tradition of excellence where she is mentored and supported by an extraordinary team of faculty, staff, alumnae, and her Spelman sisters.

She will travel abroad – whether it’s to participate in a service project for two weeks in Ghana or spend an entire semester in Japan.  She will have an opportunity to experience the professional world she aspires to join through research or an internship opportunity.  She will develop a leadership style that will distinguish her in graduate or professional school, corporate board rooms or community service.
