People of Atlanta are proud their significant history, being one of the most influential city, Atlanta makes an active contribution in higher education, art and sports. This city has a fascinating and distinctive background. University of Atlanta truly believes in learning and revealing historical facts among students which were unknown to the world until today. With University of Atlanta Explore, Educate and Evolve campaign we aim to share small bits and pieces of information which will add up to your awareness about the city.
We are well aware of the fact that every city has its own norms and rules. Today we will share something interesting about the citizens of Atlanta. We will share a few things which you just don’t say to people from Atlanta.
- “You live in Atlanta? But you don’t have an accent.”
Too many people venture to the South expecting to hear that stereotypical thick, exaggerated drawl — the kind that charms up images of a 90’s movie with mint juleps, and white suits. Truth is, that drawl is a creation of Hollywood’s imagination. But in reality it’s not true, it’s just a perception!
- Yes, every street is named Peach tree!
People from Atlanta are constantly teased about street named “Peachtree”. Yes there are number of streets called peach tree street, lane or avenue. It’s a fact, there are about 90 Atlanta streets that incorporate some variation of “Peach” and “Tree” into their labels.
- Atlanta is not bad in sports!
Recently, a magazine column labelled Atlanta as the “The Worst Sports Town in America”, a label people didn’t like and, more importantly, don’t deserve to be labelled. People of Atlanta are huge fan of sports, it is home to four professional sport teams and they love to out for games. Last year, the Atlanta Falcons ranked 13th out of 32 NFL teams. The Atlanta Braves also ranked 13th out of the 30 Major League Baseball teams.
- Don’t compare Atlanta with New York
Atlanta takes pride in its own morals, uniqueness, and panache. Although, there are a few things which cannot simply match New York. But Atlanta is more than happy with its own cultural values.
- Mind your manners.
People of Atlanta are known for being particular about their manners. If you go a restaurant and yell, Waiter!!! No sire they do not stand this behavior. Saying “please,” “thank you,” and “how are you?” may slow things down, but social details are something Atlantans happily make time for.
We are experiencing a great deal of response and appreciation from students and everyone involved, University of Atlanta is keeping up with the tradition of giving to the world. The results keep on getting better with more and more individuals becoming connected with the cause.
