Atlanta Metropolitan is a school that provides hopes and dreams of becoming who you want to be in life. The resources are phenomenal from the library to the classrooms. Atlanta Metropolitan State College makes sure that students have weekly seminars that they can attend at their own will. The professors on the other hand can be difficult, but its college! We all need a challenge in our lives. Many professors are there to help you in succeeding to reach your dreams. I use ratemyprofessor.com when choosing any of my instructors. The cafeteria is awesome! They have foods of your liking at any time. This school is a community college for anyone who stays in the Atlanta area. There is no housing so tuition is really cheap and affordable. If you are looking for a school that allows you to work around your schedule, then Atlanta Metropolitan State College is the right school for you.

Atlanta Metro used to offer classes that were very flexible to my schedule, however, since becoming a State College , they have removed several online and on campus courses limiting my once plentiful options. They could benefit from consistency as it felt that each year entailed another crucial change, changes that could even sometime negatively impact your program of study. I am grateful that I completed a majority of my core coursework and have been able to easily transfer to another university.
I personally love Atlanta Metropolitan State College. The campus is beautiful and you can really see the transformation happening. It is somewhat a small school so the staff to student ratio is low which helps a lot when I need assistance in the classroom and assistance with other problems I may have on campus. It’s also a blessing to have a low staff to student ratio because sitting in financial aid isn’t as bad as they are at other schools. My overall experience is a ten out of ten!
