1 College Senior

Local Area: Honestly, this is not an area that I would live in. I used to and the houses lost over 75% of their value. I would not recommend Clayton County to anyone who has children and wants them to attend a good public school. Let's just say that some high schools don't even carry soap or toilet paper in their bathrooms.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: There is a mall close by but there are mostly car dealers up the street.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: The school is located in the suburbs. It's great if you're a commuter student like myself. The campus is still being updated and new facilities are being added each year

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: The campus is a bit off from the city, which is nice, but the city itself is a modern day city with activities to fill one's day.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: If you don't have a car or know anyone with a car, you will be very limited with things to do around CSU. Southlake mall isn't very good. There is an AMC close but like I said, if you don't have a car it will still be difficult to get to. There are lots of things to do around campus and off campus (skating, parties, etc) and there are sometimes shuttles to bring you there.

Overall, you need a car to best enjoy your the local atmosphere at Clayton State.
