My Campus is not perfect; However, It has its perks. We have amenities to keep us entertained and the building are in walking distance. The dorms are nice but not as spacious. The social atmospere could be better compared to other universities. The President is Great in getting the student's opinion on processes and decisions that will affect us. The teachers are great as far as relaying career enhancing acitivities and opportunities. I would say parking is one disadvantage that my school has. We have classes as late as 9 and 10 p.m and some women may have to walk alone to their cars. Overall, my school is Okay!

Clayton State's campus life is great! The campus is diverse and close knit that everything is within a 10 minute walking distance. The student center offers a lot of services from health( counseling, dental) to admissions (financial aid, bursar). A great bookstore which is known as the Loch shop. The Loch shop's inventory ranges from snacks to up to date technology far as computers and gaming systems. There are over 80 organizations our campus offers and since we're a technology based school it is highly recommended that students check their emails because ALL news about things happening on campus will be sent to each student & facility. Our school is always getting better as each year passes.

The school is overall GREAT! The dorms are very spacious, with your very own room that comes with a nightstand, desk table, and chestnut drawer. You only share a bathroom with one person, which is great for cleanliness. The campus is settled and very comfortable. Classroom are not that big which gives you more of a one on one experience and relationship with your professor.
