Its absolutely what you make it. The teachers are great although, administration is a bit unorganized,but they are improving. The motto is Find a Way or Make One and that is exactly what you need to do. This school is not for the weak minded. If you cannot balance work and social life then save your money and look into your local community college. Clark Atlanta has all the resources needed for you to be a successful asset to society. There is always something to do around campus and you're in the center of downtown Atlanta where there are loads of things to do! What more can you ask for.

My experience at Clark Atlanta has been blissful. I love my institution, but it took some adjustments to get to that point. I had to adjust to the campus size because it is not very big. Although, the classroom sizes are perfect. The professors are able to connect with their students. I was able to gain relationships with my professors and classmates. There are so many resources on campus to use for academic success. They have many events like financial literacy, health and wellness, research to get involved in. I was able to attend events like those during my free time, which allowed me to stay on track academically. The atmosphere is wonderful, its like a spirit of greatness throughout the campus. Everyone dresses fashionably, social events are uplifting, and students interact with one another. Teachers are always motivating their students to excel. Ive had some hard lessons here, but a lot of growth. During my experience at Clark Atlanta the good has always outweighed the bad.

People smoke in their rooms ALL the time. Sometimes they get caught, sometimes they don't. It's def easier in certain dorms (which I will not name) but you'll figure it out if you partake in those things. Majority drinks, some know their limits...others are a mess. Also since we are in ATL and everybody loves ATL rappers, on campus they try to dress like them and also like to pop pills. It's real and so are the side affects!
