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.

Off-Campus Dining: To be honest, I find myself eating outside of the cafe more than I eat cafe food.

2 College Freshman

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.

Campus Food: Always makes you go to the bathroom.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: On campus dormitories are better than some other colleges. However, the housing rules suck! Visitation is only from 6 PM to 11:30 PM. We can only have visitors that are within the AUC. We cannot have any outside visitors that do not attend a school in the AUC, which sucks. Social atmosphere is okay, maybe above average. You have the people that will always speak to you on the promenade and then you will have the people that won't speak to you. The cost is ridiculous however. Right now I am paying $37,000 at least just for my freshman year. I don't see where all of my money goes to. The food sucks.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is always great. You can do what you want.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: off campus dining is way better than on campus dining.

3 College Freshman

Administration: They are very lenient, not so much strict about anything.

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.
