    Costs way too much. Faculty and staff generally tend to forget that they work for you. There are some special exceptions but expect a lot of attitudes and procrastination when you need something from them but tons of emails and notices when it's the other way around. Facilities and resources are just okay. On the plus side when you do find that gem of a teacher your experience becomes a little easier. Still, it's a reflection of the students as nobody demands better. Including myself, but once you get so close to graduation you become jaded and just want to get out.

    It actually depends on how you look at things. Yes the tuition is a lot of money but it all depends on what you make of your experience at the university.

    This University is definitely expensive and I have heard people say that they don't believe they're getting the bang for their buck at Clark Atlanta, however I would have to disagree. College anywhere is expensive, and many people don't believe they're getting the bang for their buck because they're not taking advantage of their resources. Clark Atlanta has so much to offer their students to help them succeed, however it's up to the students attending the University to seek help themselves and use their resources. Out of 5 stars, I'd give Bang for the Buck at Clark Atlanta University, a solid 4 out of 5 stars.
