I recently toured this college and absolutely loved it! The students were very prideful in their school and advocated for the hbcu experience in general as the one you won't get anywhere else. The professors new the students by name which was very encouraging. The campus, in general, was gorgeous and I am sure that this is the school for me!

Clark Atlanta University provides an experience like no other! There’s many organizations and extra curricular activities available to get involved in, community service events, and the professors really care about their students! Campus life is always lively and the students have a bond like no other. l’d definitely consider this a “second home”!
Suck for a HBCU! No band, terrible football team, 4 of 5 teachers are hard to understand. Open campus even though its supposed to be private. no hall directors, boys lived in all girls hall without anyone knowing. Does not have enough housing for all students. Dorms are old and dirty. Crackheads come on campus. Do not walk to Walmart alone (only a block away). A party every night in the dorms, bothering those who wish to attend class. How is the food bad in the heart of Atlanta! After the first week of classes everything goes downhill.
