As a small undergraduate college with roughly 2,300 students and an 11 to 1 student / faculty ratio, Spelman College gives its students lots of personal attention. Its urban location allows it to share resources with the Atlanta University Center, a consortium of historically Black colleges that includes Clark Atlanta University, the Interdenominational Theological Center, Morehouse College and Morehouse School of Medicine.
