Clark Atlanta University's administration is slowly becoming more strict in how it deals with students and how it runs the campus. The open campus allows practically anyone to walk on and off campus at their leisure, and while campus security is stationed at almost every entrance and exit on campus, people who are not enrolled at CAU can still easily walk onto campus and pose as students if they look decent. The administration has started to remedy this occurrence by having more than one campus officer at the entrance and exit gates. Officers also patrol the classroom buildings, as well as the dormitories. Clark Atlanta takes having proper identification very seriously. Be sure to carry your school ID at all times. You will not be able to enter the library or ride the AUC shuttle without it.
The only major illegal activity that is committed on campus is illegal parking. Day to day, the campus parking service officials and campus security officers are ticketing or booting cars that have been illegally parked by students. The campus has started to become stricter on how students dress when they're outside their dorm rooms. The Clark Atlanta School of Business enforces a professional dress code Monday through Friday, and if students don't adhere to it, they can be refused service and even thrown out of class. Sometimes these flashlight cops take their jobs extra seriously, and many times they overreact when nothing is really going on but a little routine school spirit.
