    Nothing special and nothing horrible. Transitioned from Panther Den to Wow Cafe a couple years ago. I personally miss the den but incoming students won't know a difference. There's a cafeteria, the WOW cafe, and Jazzmans, which is coffee/tea/smoothies/bagels. A bunch of fast food restaurants around as well.

    The dinning hall has multiple time frames which comes in hand when you are trying to eat in between classes. If you have classes all day and think that you have missed the cafe no worries because there is a late night dinner service. Inside the cafe there are different stations so if you aren't very sure what you have the taste for when you walk in I am pretty sure you will know once you have walked in and looked at the food. Every Wednesday there is Fried Chicken Wednesdays and on Fridays there are Fried Fish Fridays. But if you are a healthy eater they have food to accommodate your eating habits.

    Although the food at Clark Atlanta isn't horrible, the people in charge of preparing the food always make sure their is lots of variety on the menu from day to day. I definitely recommend eating the cafeteria food in moderation, but there are a variety of choices to choose from. There is always a salad bar, a burger grill, and and ala carte sections for students to select from. The dessert bar offers cookies, cobblers, cakes, and ice creams, and there is always an assortments of beverages to choose from.

    I'm keeping this part short and simple. There are greek members everywhere. Some of them wear their paraphernalia all the time and then some do not. During homecoming week or during their founders week you will be able to clearly identify who they are simply by them strolling or by them actually wearing their greek paraphernalia.

    Greek life is something I , myself would love to participate in. The Greeks at Clark Atlanta are always fun to be around, definitely make campus life that much more fun to be apart of, and they also give back to those less fortunate which is always good.

    There are multiply sororities and fraternities that anyone can find their selves to fit in. Everyone take pride in their chapter and respect other chapters around them.

    KEY ADVICE: If you are planning on joining a sorority or fraternity, it is crucial that you do not inform anyone of which one you are planning on joining. Especially when you are in the process of doing so.
