Health & Safety: SAfety sucks but health services are great

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Dorm life is what you make it honestly. It could be worse.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I only hope to be able to cross. Our greeks are wonderful.

1 College Sophomore

Athletics: The football team is pretty awful. So the school doesnt really support them well.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love CAU. I had a wonderful freshman year and I cant wait to return this fall

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Quality courses. Decent sizes. Most professors are cool.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Always job and internship fairs. They help you out.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel sort of safe. We have public safety officers at every entrance being that we are a private campus. You can't get on campus certain days and times if you don't have a student ID. We are in an urban area however so crime is no stranger to students on campus. We can contact public safety to watch us walk home safely or whatever.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Dorms are CAU Suites (male & female freshman housing), traditional halls (Merner, Pfeiffer, Holmes) and Heritage Commons, Brawley Hall and Beckwith. Social atmosphere is lit. CAU Suites is probably more attractive and comfortable for freshmen but it's a longer walk to classes compared to traditional dorms (they are a 1-2 min walk to CMW)

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is a big deal. Greeks are extremely active on campus however we don't have Greek housing. Greek life definitely is a huge part of social life at CAU. Non Greeks love and respect Greeks.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: We are not a great sport school, but the school spirit is always high.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love my HBCU. My favorite events are stroll offs and sporting events. The parties are always lit. It's cool when you attend an HBCU because your professors genuinely care about your success. My school is unique because we are in the AUC (Atlanta University Center) and the ONLY university in the AUC. We are able to cross-register at the other institutions in the AUC, which are Morehouse and Spelman, so we can utilize our college experience to the fullest.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I want to be a Sports Broadcaster and my school has a partnership with Yale University, so I could go to Yale for a semester and work under ESPN.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Its okay because your such in close proximity to others you get to know new people.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The greek like is very big on HBCU campuses.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Everybody is involved in sporting events even though our school isn't as good as others.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My school has a traditional HBCU atmosphere and I love my school, the diversity is pretty cool too.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I enjoy attending Clark, there so much for you to do on and off campus. There are people there to help you. Most people are kind and cool. You are surrounded by two other schools, where you can make new friends and also to have new experiences. For those considering Clark look no further.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Can't expect to just have a job waiting for you when you graduate, but most of the students with my major have had opportunities waiting for them. So just working hard can get you where you need to go.

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.
