What's your overall opinion of Atlanta Metropolitan State College?

12 Students rated Atlanta Metropolitan State College


Atlanta Metropolitan State College is providing more ways for students to get involved, and love their school community. Also, there are groups and organizations avaialble, but not much live events happen on campus that students always enjoy. I hope to become more involved to promote students to keep doing well in their studies, and to join clubs and organizations.


It is an okay school for starting out. I do wish there would be more sports and things like that. Most of the teachers do a good job when teaching, but some could put a little bit more effort when they teach. There could also be more choices in the cafeteria instead of the usual food items we choose from.


If feel that Atlanta Metropolitan State College would be an decent school if they have more student involvement. Stating when students pitch ideas they shouldn’t be so quick to deny them. Yes, the idea can be new and something the college has never done before. You have to try new things, and would get a better view of what the students like. The food is not that bad, but it could be a little cheaper. In addition, there should be facility and student events. Which would make students and faculty more comfortable with each other. Other than that the school is ok.


Overall, Atlanta Metro is a pretty decent school. Like any other university, everyone's experience is not the same. I, personally, generally had great professors. My Psychology professor, Mrs. Chattfield, was the best instructor I've had so far. The food options, while tasty, aren't the healthiest. The lab, though "state of the art", isn't as stocked as one would expect. The campus, in my opinion, is nicely groomed. Currently, the school is undergoing some cosmetic construction which will greatly improve the already lovely landscape. The only negative I can think of is the lack of classes and convenient class times. There a quite a few classes that are mandatory for my major that either aren't offered at all, or are only offered late in the evening. Like I said in the beginning, my experience probably differs from that of other students. However, I believe that AMSC is a good community college, and shouldn't be counted out so quickly.

  4. What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

    The worst thing about Atlanta Metropolitan College is the lack of communication between the administration and the student. Being that the institution is relatively small and serves about two-thousand students there are too many delays when it comes to notifications of all types. It is important that students meet deadlines but it makes it when needed documentation arrives late because of an institution. The institutions admissions, registeur, and student fiscal affairs offers are affected the most by the lack of inter-communication. It is a situation that need be addressed and fixed.
