Hmm, the best way to describe Olive Branch is a family reunion, cookout and festival all thrown together with students from Spelman, Morehouse and Clark Atlanta University. This is the time and place to bond and connect with students from different backgrounds!
You will wear white a lot at Spelman, its one of our most notable traditions. It is common to wear white during the New Student Induction Ceremony, Founders Day and Commencement Activities.
Well, you aren't here yet. But, when you do arrive and have been officially inducted into Spelman, you will want to know how to get around. Since first-year students aren't allowed to have cars on campus, you will have to rely on other modes of transportation.
Your life as a Spelman student will be marked in the beginning with a candlelight ceremony, and at the end with a walk through Alumnae arch on the oval. Many experiences will take place in between these two events. Get ready for a lifetime of sisterhood!
We are excited to welcome you into the Spelman sisterhood!
