Home to more than 85 clubs and organizations representing everything from professional, cultural and spiritual development, to recreation, sports clubs and volunteer services, Spelman students receive a plethora of opportunities to meet new people and develop their interests or talents.

Sorority life is a fun and memorable part of the Spelman College experience. Spelman's sororities are distinctive communities that support the academic mission of the college by enhancing student learning, scholarship and service. Membership in a sorority can be like having a home away from home as sororities expand the bonds of sisterhood in our community.
The Spelman College Campus Assessment Response and Evaluation (CARE) Team engages in proactive and collaborative approaches which provide early identification, assessment, management, and mitigation of risk. The risks are associated with students, faculty, staff, and visitors exhibiting concerning disruptive, and/or potentially harmful behaviors or thoughts.
The CARE Team serves as a resource to the campus community by providing guidance for all members regarding how to seek assistance and report behaviors of concern. In addition, the team seeks to sustain a campus network where the campus community can respond to situations involving students, faculty, and staff by connecting them to essential support services on and off campus.
HOUSING AND MEALS
From classic Southern residence halls with antebellum porches to modern Suites that provide an amenity-filled apartment-style environment, students will choose to live in one of Spelman’s eleven residence halls on campus. Most rooms are double occupancy, but there are some singles, triples, quads, and even a few rooms designed for five people. Every room comes furnished with a twin-sized bed, dresser, closet, desk and chair for each occupant.
Students may choose to buy a meal plan for the dining halls on campus, and can also cook in the communal kitchens provided by most of the residences.
