Clark Atlanta was a very lively and welcoming campus. Though I was only there for a college tour, it opened my eyes to different opportunities around campus. Also the day I visited, they were having a market day in which different companies market around campus and it's really like a big festival in a way. What i also enjoyed was how nice and hospitable the campus was to the other schools that shared the campus with them. It is a very positive campus and people also like to showcase their talents on the little board walk that they have. It is definitely an experience and this experience has made it a top choice on my college list.

From the moment I stepped on Clark Atlanta University campus, I felt the warmth and compassion from each individual I came into contact with. I am confident that all faculty and staff is truly committed to my success. Clark Atlanta University is great school, and greatness comes with a price. Tuition is expensive, and I wish to receive a scholarship to assist with cost.
