5 College Sophomore

Nightlife: I Absoultey loved the night life of CAU and I will miss it. Partying with the AUC your brother and sister school Morehouse and Spelmen is so fun and sometimes you will get GSU in there too. Spelmen girls party the wildest. Lady in the street but freaks at the club! I rather be at Manison Elan any day but on campus events are just as wild like "Up Til Dawn" in the student center and talent shows and other events. Its hard to focus on homework during the weekdays because there are always things to do on campus. Monday is "Tounge & Groove", "Hump Wedsnday", "Thirsty Thursdays" and Club on Friday and Saturday. Always something to do and its super easy to join a promo team and get in free and get perks and meet celebs but you got to pay to play.

Atlanta is filled with colleges and people who love to have fun. On campus, there is always something to do. Every weekend there is somewhere to go and a party to attend. Most parties have a specific theme, such as a Toga Party or a Halloween-themed party. There are even music genre-themed parties that focus on particular genres of music, such as reggae vs. go-go. Most freshmen choose to attend parties that provide shuttle buses that take you to the venue and back to campus. They are very convenient but can get rather crowded at times.

Most clubs are 18 and older, but there are a few that require you to be 21 or older. The 21+ clubs are located in Midtown and Buckhead. The clubs that allow you to enter at 18 usually prohibit you from drinking if you are underage (under 21). Overall, Atlanta's nightlife is one of a kind. There is always something to do and people to mingle with. However, partying can be dangerous at times, too. Remember to always have a form of identification and be aware of your surroundings. You can never be too safe.
