Clayton State University is “proof that ethnic diversity and scholastic achievement can make for a happy marriage in the modern South.”
And, Clayton State is a good deal as well.
So says Georgia’s only monthly news magazine, James, in its July 2010 Best Colleges & Universities in Georgia issue. Coming on the heels of U.S. News & World Report ranking Clayton State in the first tier among Regional Colleges in the South, James’ comments serve to underline what Clayton State students, faculty and staff already know… the University has a lot to offer prospective college students, from ages 14 (the University’s youngest Dual Enrollment student) to 74 (the University’s oldest MBA graduate).
James lists Clayton State as both one of the “Underrated” colleges and universities in Georgia (that’s where the “happy marriage” quote comes from) and as one of the “Best Buys” among Georgia institutions of higher education, noting Clayton State’s proximity to Atlanta and the diversity of its student body, which has been ranked the most diverse in the south six times since 2001 by U.S. News. (Clayton State is seventh in the most current U.S. News rankings.)
James says it this way, “School with someone just like you. School with someone not at all like you. Do them both right down the street.”
That’s Clayton State; right down the street for much of metro Atlanta, as diverse a student body you’ll find, and a center for scholastic achievement, all wrapped up in a best buy.
