What's the HBCU scene like in Atlanta, GA?

I'm from the Midwest and considering moving to the South for college. Atlanta seems like a hotspot, but I want to know what the HBCU presence is like there. What are the campuses like, and how's the student life? Any info helps! :)

Hey there! My kid just started their sophomore year in Atlanta at an HBCU, and they couldn't be more thrilled with the decision. Atlanta is indeed a hotspot for HBCUs, with notable institutions like Spelman, Morehouse, and Clark Atlanta University forming part of the Atlanta University Center Consortium. These campuses are vibrant and full of history and pride, each with unique traditions and strong community ties.

Student life is particularly rich with cultural events, Greek life, and numerous organizations geared towards academic success, community service, and cultural enrichment. Plus, the networking opportunities in Atlanta for young professionals and college students are fantastic, owing to the city's robust corporate presence. From my kid's experience and the stories they share, it seems like a supportive and exciting environment to be in!
