Overall Rating

I like the fact that it is very diverse and you can meet new people. I met all my current friends here at this school in my freshman year and we are closer than ever and they are my support system. I also love going to panther prowl with my friends and meeting new friends. I also like the convenience of the location of the school because it is right on the Marta line as far as the bus and train. I like it because it is close to where I spent most of my childhood on Auburn ave.
