Spelman College

Spelman College is a four-year liberal arts women's college located in Atlanta, Georgia, United States and is the premier historically Black college for women and one of the finest institutions for undergraduate education nationwide.

Founded in 1881 as the Atlanta Baptist Female Seminary, Spelman was the first historically black female institution of higher education to receive its collegiate charter in 1924. It thus holds the distinction of being America's oldest historically black college for women. In 2008 Spelman completed the construction of a "green" residence hall behind the Living-Learning Center I. The residence hall has suite-style accommodations for upper-class students, including a second dining hall and a parking deck on the ground floor and is for now referred to as The Suites.
