Clayton State is unique because of the diversiy on campus. This school has very helpful reources. Students have many options in learning at this school. The professors go over and beyond in helping students. There is fun students activities to engage in on campus. Its also a beautiful campus with lakes and ducks. As well as geese that walks on campus. I wouldnt trade any other school for Clayton State University!

I really enjoy how passionate my teachers are with me and my classmates. They want to see us be successful, they want to see us do and be our best, and they are willing to give their all in order for us to achieve our goals.

A good "overall' school. However, the computer science department leaves much to be desired. Some of the c.s. professors are all over the place. They are smart, but some of them aren't effective and or engaging with their individual teaching styles. Consequently, students sometimes suffer or it.
