Clark Atlanta University is a great institution! It's very family oriented, the professors are enthusiastic about teaching, and it's in my state that I have lived all of my life. Clark is also very large and diverse. There are people from every state there. Also, being a part of the Atlanta University, I get to interact with students from Morehouse and Spelman. My first year wasn't as hard as I thought and I'm looking forward to my second year!
Review Clark Atlanta University
Its absolutely what you make it. The teachers are great although, administration is a bit unorganized,but they are improving. The motto is Find a Way or Make One and that is exactly what you need to do. This school is not for the weak minded. If you cannot balance work and social life then save your money and look into your local community college. Clark Atlanta has all the resources needed for you to be a successful asset to society. There is always something to do around campus and you're in the center of downtown Atlanta where there are loads of things to do! What more can you ask for.
Clark Atlanta University is one of the Historical Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU). Majority of the students and faculties staffs are African American. I had a great college experience at Clark Atlanta University. The campus shares boundaries with Spelman College and Morehouse College, and the three school share one library together. Clark Atlanta University is a great institution to attend. A lot of fun activities to do on campus or around campus. Everyone treat each others like a family. If you want to know about HBCU experience, Clark Atlanta University is best institution to attend. The change i will like to see at the institution is for the students to promote the institution at the highest level.
