Homecoming ’19 Dorm Wars Competition

LLC1 Residents with Fenty BeautyCongratulations to LLC1 alumnae for winning our recent Homecoming ’19 Dorm Wars Competition! We are pleased to share that in honor of LLC1’s victory, we recently hosted a game night for the current residents! Our students had a blast dancing to music and playing classics like Uno, Connect 4, and card games.

The students were in awe of the $28,383 that LLC1 alumnae donated to the college, and were grateful to celebrate their generosity and commitment to Spelman!

We also received a special surprise from Fenty Beauty, who noticed LLC1 residents’ love for Rihanna as demonstrated by their dorm theme featuring the iconic star and her many business ventures. To show their appreciation, they sent stylish Fenty Beauty fanny packs as a gift to the dorm. Our students absolutely love them and were beyond excited to be recognized by Rihanna’s brand!

We’re so grateful to the alumnae in every single dorm for participating in our Homecoming ‘19 Dorm Wars Campaign and making it beyond successful! Thanks to all of you, we raised over $167,000 dollars from more than 1200 donors! We are truly overwhelmed by the love and support we receive from our alumnae, and are forever grateful for your True Blue spirit.

Every Woman...Every Year History

In 2006, Spelman College launched the Every Woman… Every Year! campaign to increase Alumnae participation and the support of EVERY alumna EVERY year. Over the last 10 years, our alumnae participation rate has doubled, helping Spelman remain the No. 1 HBCU since the campaign launch. This year our goal is 35% alumnae participation and we cannot reach this goal without YOU.
