A Message From the Director

Aisha HitsonGreeting Spelmanites!

As we embark on this journey called life, situations, such as the one we are currently facing, will nudge us to focus on the negatives. I encourage you to wake up each day and count your many reasons to be grateful. It is easy to sing our beloved Spelman Hymn with heads held high and tell the world that we are “undaunted by the fight”, but to sing it with conviction while facing a yearlong pandemic takes courage and unwavering faith. It takes a Spelman woman to be truly undaunted.

I greet you on behalf of my team, we welcome you to Spelman. While at Spelman, we hope you will continue to discover your passions and build upon your leadership skills by staying engaged whether we are on campus or virtual. In our office, we advise the Student Government Association, Programming Board, Greek Life, Miss Spelman and Court, Class Councils and Registered Student Organizations. We oversee Homecoming, Get Away to Explore and Family Weekend, to name some of our events. If you have not done so, please check out SpelLink, and discover all the ways that you can become and stay engaged.
