  • Alleyah Caesar - American University

    Alleyah Caesar
    I am an aspiring civil rights attorney with a strong passion for protecting marginalized identities. I was excited to work towards that goal by interning at The Council for Court Excellence (CCE), a nonprofit, nonpartisan civic organization that makes policy recommendations for courts in the DC area.
  • Alston Bowman - Pitzer College

    PITZER College
    I am currently on exchange at Pitzer College located in Claremont, California. With weather being one of the biggest factors as to why I chose California for an exchange, it has been absolutely beautiful with 70 degrees in the winter.
  • Naomi Steplight - Dartmouth College

    Naomi Steplight
    I am so pleased that I chose to study at Dartmouth for the fall. The experiences I gained through my classes were unlike anything I’d be able to experience at Spelman, and I am grateful for them.
  • Maya Perkins - Spelman College

    Maya Perkins
    I’ve loved my time at Spelman! Being surrounded by dynamic Black women has been truly transformative.
  • Abeo Chimeka-Tisdale - Mills College

    Abeo Chimeka-Tisdale
    I selected Mills College (Oakland, CA) as my domestic exchange institution because I wanted an environment that mirrored Spelman in some ways (small, historical women's college, near a major city) but would be validating of my queer and non-binary identities.
  • Kyana Washington - New York University

    For the past few months, I have had the privilege of studying at New York University. This experience has been a huge blessing, and I can’t believe I am halfway through the semester.
  • Sade' Harper - Stanford University

    Sade Harper
    My name is Sade’ Harper, and I am junior economics major doing a semester at Stanford University. It has been a difficult transition so far because Stanford works on the quarter system and the teaching styles are extremely different from Spelman.
  • Kristina Goodwin - Spelman College

    Kristina Goodwin
    Being able to attend Spelman has truly changed my life. I am so honored to be able to get the experience of attending an HBCU.
  • Alexis Heard - Spelman College

    Alexis Heard
    Coming from The New School to Spelman College is definitely a big energy change. Spelman has a community that cannot be replaced, and I have definitely been welcomed with open arms.
  • Kapri Washington - Spelman College

    Spelman Spring
    At first, I was a little overwhelmed by how many Black people there were around as a student that had attended a PWI for 2 years. Over time, it wasn’t hard for me to adjust. The students and faculty at Spelman (and in the AUC) are very welcoming.
