    Clark Atlanta University is one of the best things that has happened to me. What people don't know unless they come here is Clark Atlanta University is apart of the the Atlanta University Center, which is known as the AUC where all the colleges and universities get together and work together. Our close partners in a lot of the organizations and activities we do are partnerships with Morehouse College, Spelman College, Morris Brown College, Morehouse School of Medicine, and Interdenominational Theological Center (ITC). This makes college so much more fun because not only do you meet people from your school, but others as well which enables students to network even more which is an excellent opportunity here in the AUC.

    Besides the countless encounters and memories I've come across during academic hours, the social life here is amazing. Considering CAU is close to downtown Atlanta, there are various activities you can get involved with. Lots of sight-seeing, attractions, and dining. On campus, there is just about an organization for anything you can think of. My advice to perspective students is to get involved!

    I love being at CAU. There is always something to do to keep you occupied in your free time and being 10 minutes away from downtown makes it even that much better. The overall atmosphere on campus is phenomenal. Everyone treats each other like family and anyone who attends is bound to be treated with respect by both students and faculty.
