Sorority life is a fun and memorable part of the Spelman College experience. Our sororities are distinctive communities that support the academic mission of the college by enhancing student learning, scholarship and service. Membership in a sorority can be like having a home away from home as sororities expand the bonds of sisterhood in our community.
The primary purpose of sorority life at Spelman College is to assist each member with realizing their intellectual, social, physical, and artistic talents and gifts. Spelman sororities are very committed to academic achievement and academic excellence. All sorority chapters are required to maintain a minimum 3.0 cumulative and semester grade point average.
Leadership and service are part of the core values of the Spelman experience. Spelman sororities are committed to leadership and service both on campus and within the greater Atlanta community. In addition, students involved in sorority life develop leadership skills valued by employers and graduate and professional schools, including self-confidence, leadership, scholarship, interpersonal competence, and communication skills. We invite you to explore sorority life — an action oriented community of leaders focused on learning, leadership, scholarship and service.
