When and Where I Enter: Honoring Our Past...Claiming Our Future


The NSO Program seeks to accomplish the following:

  • Facilitate the smooth transition of new students, including transfer, international, domestic exchange, and Pauline E. Drake scholars to the Spelman community;
  • Introduce all students to Spelman’s educational mission, history and unique opportunities;
  • Provide academic advisement and course registration;
  • Aid students in understanding their responsibilities as members of the Spelman College academic and social communities;
  • Provide all new students with opportunities for social and recreational activities that develop sisterhood and supportive networks and that foster a sense of school pride.

You are expected to attend all programs and activities. The programs will help you successfully navigate the Spelman College experience.  All New Student Orientation information, including the schedule, will be posted on the mySpelman portal under the tab New Student Orientation.
