Administration: The school protect the students. The students have a specific time when they are allowed to bring friends to the dormitory. Clark Atlanta wants the student to feel safe, and protected at all times. Excellent school.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The school does not have a private campus. So anybody is liable to walk on campus during class period times. At night security sometimes ask to see your ID when walking on campus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food could be better. But i think as you move on to being a sophomore and can choose your meal plan most would be fine. Some would peter to have flex dollars instead of unlimited cafe food and 25 dollar fed dollars.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Its a traditional style dorm with two people to a room. Bathrooms are always clean due to janitorial work and students. Theres activities every week that'll involve community service or just life learned lessons. The visitation rules are okay as well.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: They are okay. A lot are nonactive

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have only lived on campus

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: Mostly have the same food. It would be best to add other food places.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: From what I have seen, off-capmus housing is not that bad. It is way cheaper off campus than on campus.

Administration: A lot of times they're too strict. I chose to come to college to not be treated like a kid and yet I'm still being treated like one by Clark and its officers.

Party Scene: Some parties are not good and a waste to go to. Other parties are cool. You have to choose wisely to which parties you go to.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: I continuously try to receive some kind of aid from the school or the government. the school is always saying that they don't have any money to give out and I am in desperate need for money.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
