Clark Atlanta University Reviews
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.
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!
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.
