Spelman College is home for me and has been since 1984. It is the place where my foundation as a strong black woman was laid. I knew Spelman was special because freshman week it was impressed upon us that showing your intelligence was the norm; exhibiting excellence in all that we did was the standard; and being sisterly was not optional, it was necessary … kind of like the air we need to breathe.

I didn't really have a moment. Quite honestly, I chose Spelman because I was offered a scholarship. It turned out to be a great choice.

I knew Spelman was the place for me when I heard then President Dr. Johnetta B. Cole speak about the 4Ss: Sisterhood, Service, Spirituality, and Scholarship. She eloquently put into words what I was searching for as a young 18 year old who was looking for a place that will nurture and see all of me.

I knew that Spelman was a special place, the moment that I arrived for Freshman Week Orientation. The love, support and sisterhood shown were unparalleled.
