About Atlanta, Georgia

Atlanta, Georgia, combines the entertainment, educational, and economic opportunities of an international city with the flavor and personality of close-knit, eclectic neighborhoods.

Our Midtown neighborhood is a thriving place to create, learn, live, work, and play. The city's network of diverse neighborhoods offers a taste of home for everyone — from apartments, lofts, and high-rises to small bungalows or impressive mansions. As the state's economic and cultural hub, Atlanta is packed with attractions, small businesses, high-tech startups, and multinational corporations, along with restaurants, theaters, museums, and concert venues.

Within an easy walk to campus are green spaces and parks, including Centennial Olympic Park, Piedmont Park, and the Atlanta BeltLine — a network of public parks, multi-use trails, and multiple public transit options.
