Spelman Students in White Attire

Attend Spel-Bound

April 19 - 20, 2020

Please download and familiarize yourself with the SpelBound Rules and Regulations.

We look forward to hosting you and your family in Atlanta for Spel-Bound 2020!

This two-day 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 it’s like being a Spelman student during SisterChat, attend classes with your SpelBound hostess, and maybe even find your roommate!

Admitted students will receive an electronic invitation in April. Again, congratulations on your admission, and I look forward to welcoming you to campus!

In Sisterhood,

Tiffany Nelson, Class of 2000
Director of Admissions
