While the feelings of excitement and nervousness expressed by the incoming students are typical of what any student embarking on their time in college would feel, we all know that this is not a traditional start for our Spelman little sisters. As alumnae, this is our opportunity to show them a little extra sisterly love.
We are inviting all members of the Atlanta Chapter to participate in a special opportunity to Adopt-A-Sister. As an alumna big sister in the program, you are committing to touching base with your adopted little sister at least two times per semester, providing two tokens of sisterhood throughout the school year, and fostering connections and networking opportunities where possible. To sign up, simply go to and complete the form. We will be reaching out shortly with the matches.
Participation is open to members only. Not a member of the Chapter? Join today.
The focus of National Scholarship Month is on building awareness among scholarship providers, institutions of higher education, students, parents, and businesses, and celebrates the work of helping students get to and through college. While scholarships are available on all levels of higher education, this is a great time for high school juniors and seniors to get organized and start applying for scholarships to offset the rising cost of college education.
National Family Caregivers Month
November recognizes the millions of caregivers across the country who support aging parents, ill spouses, or loved ones with disabilities receiving care in and remaining at home. Research indicates that "caregiving takes a significant emotional, physical, and financial toll, but it also reveals that coordinated support services can reduce caregiver depression, anxiety, and stress, and enable them to provide care longer." During this month we encourage you to R.A.I.S.E – Recognize, Assist, Include, Support, and Engage with caregivers in our Spelman community and those in your network to support them in this labor of love.
