New Student Orientation

August 12-17, 2021 | Undaunted by the Fight

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 changes to the New Student Orientation schedule will be posted on the mySpelman portal under the tab New Student Orientation.
