She begins by writing, "This is my Freshman year at Spelman and my last year because I decided to leave after what happened to me."
The anonymous Freshman then went on to say she was raped by four students of Morehouse College, a brother school to Spelman.
After completing a rape kit at the school and waiting a month, she was contacted by the dean of public safety.
See reactions to the allegations below:
She recounted being told that Morehouse and Superman schools are "brother & sister so I should give them a pass."
She closed the horrifying account by saying, "Spelman has taught me to be a free thinking woman and also to be a woman who has to keep her mouths closed to protect her 'brothers.'"
Since the claims surfaced, Spelman's president, Dr. Mary Campbell, penned a letter to students expressing "heartbreak" and "outrage" and vowing to launch an investigation.
She then took to her Twitter account in an attempt to reach the anonymous user to hold a private meeting.
Morehouse's president also released a statement, saying they would be launching an investigation.
The troubling tweets have sparked student protests, as well as the hashtags #RapedAtSpelman and #RapedAtMorehouse.
The unknown student has since expressed gratitude for the outpouring of support.
