Here are some of the lat long I got.

LatLong
30.47162209-84.95123589
30.47124591-84.95090615
30.47098188-84.95132902
30.4713392-84.95163068

I imported the CSV file to ArcGis, using the function "display X,Y Data" and also edited the Projected Coordinate System as UTM Zone 17N, which the same as my data frame properties.

But no matter how many times I try to make all kind of changes, it just won't show where they suppose to be.

Thanks for helping!

You bring in the file as Longitude as X and Latitude as Y and define it using an appropriate Geographic coordinate system (ie perhaps a WGS84 GCS if from gps for example).  Then you use the Project tool in ArcToolbox to project it to a new file in the desired coordinate system.  Do not edit the existing coordinate system if you have one, nor use the Define projection tool
