Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Clark Atlanta's campus isn't filled with newly remodeled buildings or extravagent architecture. Nor is it one of the most beautiful campuses there is. However, Clark Atlanta's campus is one that holds great historic value and tradition. Clark has already remodeled buildings such as the School of Buiness and School of Eduction.The gymnasium and some of the classroom buildings are in good condition but could use an update or makeover. The VW Henderson Gymnasium Center seems to be the most outdated building on campus. It is located almost completely off campus. Even though some events are hosted here, Morehouse Gym is much preferred by our students. Many students also feel that some of the freshman dorms should be revenovated.

The Carl & Mary Ware Academic Center is one of the newest and most attractive buildings on Clark Atlanta's campus. This is where most classes are located, and many students say that if you don't have a class in this building, you're not a CAU student for sure. The mass media arts building was recently renovated and equipped with a fully functional filming set. Other great buildings on campus are the Bishop Cornelius L. Henderson Student Center and the Robert W. Woodruff Library.

Favorite Things To Do
Between classes, I like to grab a smoothie and walk to another campus's sitting areas such as Morehouse or Spelman. They have beautiful campuses. Getting familiar with the campuses will allow you to find your favorite spots. Most students usually chill on the Promenade between classes or during their free time. Every Thursday, local vendors gather by the student center and sell their products that may range from framed art to fashionable clothing. Jazzman's has a tasty selection of quick in-between-class meals that most students usually take advantage of several times a week.
