5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms were in close walking proximity to all of my classes except for my Jazz Orchestra classes. So, I took the campus bus to my jazz classes.

Off-Campus Dining: I seldom dined off campus because I was on the full meal plan and I did not have money to use for eating off campus.

Campus Dining: For breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the options of cooked and uncooked fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts, legumes, and sprouts needs to be much increased.

2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Because students are quite often robbed by non-students, I do not feel safe on Clark Atlanta University's campus.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: THE AVAILIABILITY OF HOUSING WAS CONVENIENT BUT THE COST MORE HIGHER THAN I EXPECTED. THEY HAVE PEOPLE THAT CAN HELP YOU AT THE SCHOOL, BUT SOME ARE NOT WILLING TO HELP. YOU ARE PRETTY MUCH ON YOUR OWN.

Clark Atlanta University has its ups and downs. It is an institution of great higher learning, diversity, tradition, and authenticity. Here you will meet lifetime friends, business partners, and maybe even future husbands or wives. From the teachers who inspire students to the janitors that keep the facilities clean, Clark Atlanta is full of bright people. Clark Atlanta has produced some of the top leaders in almost every aspect of the business and social world. The professors are great at teaching in their fields of knowledge, but they're even better at giving life lessons that promote self-esteem, pride, and a sense of belonging. The social bonding that occurs at Clark Atlanta is like no other. CAU is indeed one of a kind.

There is definitely room for growth within this great institution. When it comes to the University's financial aid, registration, and student accounts, the University is often blamed for being extremely disorganized, rude, and careless. The substandard sports teams, rainy and cold weather seasons, parking, and transportation around campus are other aspects that make the otherwise perfect school seem less than optimal.

Most students, faculty, and alumni would agree that the CAU experience is like no other college experience in the world. Students leave Clark with great memories and even greater lessons learned. One can't promise anything from Clark Atlanta University but an abundance of enriching experiences (whether they are good or bad). At Clark Atlanta, there will be extreme highs and lows, but most students here agree that college is what you make of it. When you are given the opportunity to further your education, it is up to you to make your experience worth every penny. There are millions of possiblities out there waiting for you to make them happen.
