What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think this a good school for culture as black students, but if you are a stem major you shouldn’t come here because the stem program is very poor and the professors are pretty frustrating. The campus is also not really in a safe area so you should really stay in groups at all times.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Clark Atlanta University is a phenomenal place to live, grow, and learn. I am so ecstatic to know that I will be receiving my degree from such an astounding place. It's full of life and always feels like home. Seeing so many successful African Americans in the community, pushes me to work harder so that I can be just as established and successful

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Clark Atlanta University is culture of its own that silently speaks hope in the depths of a Black Community thats lives in the shadow of the big city of Atlanta. Im from California and I grew up accustomed to divesity and accepting of personal space and opinion. Moving here to the south was a culture shock because unlike at home the state of Georgia here is still partually segragated. Ive had my fair share of differences with non-accepting ethic groups at home in Califonia however there is a bare minimum of respect at home. Here in Georgia you can feel the tension between viewpoints and agreeances in certain areas. My school Clark Atlanta University is directy in the center of 3 way deadlock. Spellmen and Morehouse are both East of Clark Atlanta and the borderlines of all 3 of our schools cross into eachother. Both Spellman and Morhouse are well known prestegis and expenisve schools under the HBCU umbrella. Clark Atlanta on the other hand "We find a way or we make one." We dont nearly have close to the same finiacial resources as both of these schools and the students dont hide that from us. These are still our bothers and sisters but a majority of them are to fancy to kick with us. We all still look out for each other but Clark Atlanta students hold there heads high everyday and dont bow to nothing. Everybodys here for a reason and you can feel it in their presentations, projects and lectures. Class at Clark Atlanta is feels like football practice because be in class activvley learning like wear training for a big football game . Thats because when you look out side th windows you can see the big city If Atlanta staring down at you like its waiting for your arival. Going back to what I was saying about the segration, there is a boundry between the city and my schools that people generally dont cross. On our side near the school you dont see to many different colors and there are very few non-African American people making their way around the streets. However less thant 1/4th of a mill up the hill the big city of Atlanta is exstremly diverse. Atlanta alomst feels like it can be another non-judmental zone like California, however the borders that exist between the city and the segrated area's are all noticable to ignore. I belive Clark Atlanta students will be the ones to break that barrior here in Georgia and calm the tensions in the air that are holding us back from uniting. Kind of like California but less hippy-ish

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Clark Atlanta University! It is a great Historically Black College/University full of history that dates back to the 1800's. There is a lot of misconceptions that go along with Clark Atlanta's name; some are positive some are negative. The truth is in the eye of the beholder; and this goes to anyone that is in college. A lot of people say that Clark Atlanta can be boring but not it only applies to people that go to class and go back to their dorm rooms. This experience is unlike any other especially around all these apologetically black students. Needless to say that school will come with its hardships but; if you go out and make your experience it will be worth it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Although I’ve only attended Clark for a year, it is everything I’ve ever imagined it to be. I love being surrounded by my peers and seeing them succeed and the way we all unite and support eachother is such a beautiful thing. Clark is truly helping me grow and mature into a better person then I once was.

Different from the school I was normally attending. I’m from Missouri where the kids in my class where mostly white, so it’s a good thing to be around people with the same skin color as me

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Clark Atlanta University is a great institution, especially for Mass Media Arts and Business majors . For STEM majors, not so much. There are barely any tutors for us and we get the old, foreign, mean professors that are barely any help even when you take the initiative to come during office hours. The cafe food is decent, student and greeklife is very active and there is always an activity going on. Homecoming is literally the best thing ever 10/10 would recommend.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I’d say enjoy the experience but don’t be to fixated on what you imagine the experience to be like. Also be prepared for the disorderliness of the institution no matter which HBCU you attend it will be unorganized. Which is one of the main reason why I am transferring. But what I have learned is that we cannot blame the faculty for something they were never taught which is financial literacy. PWI’s have existed longer than HBCU’s so they have been running institutions for years and they’ve never experienced oppression where they couldn’t learn what they needed to make these institutions excel. So for incoming students I’d say be the students that make a change for all HBCU’s I hate to see the negatives outweigh the positives and I hate living up to our stereotypes. Be the generation that breaks the barriers that are meant to hold us back.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I loved my experience at Clark Atlanta University. Coming from Michigan, I needed the culture that CAU provided. I had professors who wanted nothing more but for me to succeed and I met SO many amazing people who became a second family to me. My college experience was like no other and I wouldn't have changed anything.

I love my HBCU but they could put funds towards schools like design instead of the sports and business centers.
