  • They try to impress you freshman year with okay dorms, which have newer furniture but no elevators for your heavy stuff. Common bathrooms have always been unappealing to me but…

    The food and dining on campus is great but what is even better is being in the same vicinity as two other colleges which provides various dining places as well. The options are plentiful on-campus and off-campus.

    Eventually you will become tired of the food that is in there. Go shopping and stock up on food at Walmart because you will need it especially because the cafeteria is not always open and they run out of food sometimes.

    At CAU students are able to enjoy meals through the dining services in the cafeteria, Jazzmans Café, or WOW Café.

    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.

    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.
