What Students Are Saying

3.53 Average Rating
there is a lot to do on campus and in atlanta in general. being involved and taking advantage of the resources available are the best things you can do.
Tia from Atlanta, GA
CAU is definitely one of the best...but, because we are located in the heart of a big and exciting city, my advice to prospective students would be to stay focused; remember that you are here for growth and educational purposes. Practice time management; it's normal to have a social life but make sure that you balance that time. Be true to yourself; being realistic and setting achievable goals before coming to school outlines your academic year and has already put into practice a form of time management.
Ayinde from Philadelphia, PA
Always put school first make it your number one priority. It is so easy to get caught up in the party life make sure you limit yourself because if you don't you will find yourself falling behind. Get involved you will learn so much and meet so many great people. Most importantly spend your money wisely!
Nekesha from CA
If you are thinking about Clark Atlanta University I think you should of course see if the distance is something you can handle. A lot of student come from out of state and can't get back and forth home. You should also think about how big of a city Atlanta is and if you can handle being away.
Brittany from Nashville, TN
If students are considering an out-of-state college be cautious in the decision because being far away from home and far from family can take a toll on some students. It is natural to be home sick and if that happens there is a counseling service on campus so students can have a safe and confidential place that they are able to go to. Also, go to a school that offers great classes for your specific major.

In preparation to attend Clark make sure you build up your savings account. You need to have cash for unexpected expenses.

JOHN from TAMPA, FL
Being able to set priorities for yourself is the biggest thing someone needs to know before attending this insititution. Also come up with a finicial plan and start saving as much as you can, because this school is pricey. Network and become involved once you arrive. Remember that purpose of going to college is to have a career.
Jillian from Allen, TX
-make sure that you choose the appropriate class times for you. meaning please don't pick a 9 am class when you know that you don't get up until 11am.
-make enough friends so that you have a variety of things that you can do and get involved in for community service and free time.
-make a semi schedule for your harder classes so that you will pass them. meaning make a study schedule so you will be on track.
-make sure that you take the right amount of classes each semester so that you won't be on overload and fail classes that you will have to repeat.
-get to know your professors they are always willing to help you.
