Majors: Clark Biology offers you the opportunity to get to know all your professors (who are all amazing) and you have to opportunity to gain substantial laboratory experience. Classes are all taught by professors and biology is one of the offered 5th year master's programs.

4 Recent Alumnus

Majors: There are no admission requirements, the only tough bit is management of all the coursework (16 required classes for the major) as well as the 8 perspective classes. It is totally do-able, but if you want to study abroad for a semester then you should plan ahead.

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing isn't necessarily pretty, and sometimes your landlord might get arrested for assault and battery on a police officer, but close to campus housing is plentiful, the houses are mostly the kitschy-cute Worcester triple-deckers, and rent only costs $350 a month. As a college student, what more could you ask for?

4 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: Clarkies are an eclectic mix. There are the hippie-dippie drum circle types, some Division III jocks, sci-fi nerds and international students from all over the world. Everyone is pretty friendly and welcoming and you can learn a lot from their diverse experiences.

2 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: It's on a sketchier side of Worcester. However a 15 minute car trip will take you to somewhere nice.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Crime around the area off campus. Health services could be better.

Majors: Philosophy and Geography are the best.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Clark is pretty lenient about most things, but mostly because people are smart about not doing things in front of police that are illegal and the police don't seek out problems where it isn't evident.

Academics: Professors are extremely helpful and accessible to students. Workload is average for this level school, and other students are very willing to help classmates who are struggling if asked.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't lived off-campus, but it can be cheaper. Off-campus isn't the safest neighborhood though.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There're a lot of places to eat in Worcester, but few places are within walking distance.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Clarkies are pretty laid back. There's a lot of drug and alcohol use but a lot of people hang out with others who are using and no one cares if they choose not to partake.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: Clark doesn't have Greek life, but close relationships are made in clubs and classes instead.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Clark's buildings vary greatly in age, but they are very good at not letting any of them get too bad.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: No one pays attention to athletics at Clark. The gym is new, however, and always clean and accessible.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There're a lot of colleges in Worcester, but other than food, bars, and a few museums, it isn't a city with a lot to offer socially.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: Wireless can be slow across campus and getting onto the network from your laptop at the beginning of the year can be a major hassle. Tech support is excellent however, and will do whatever it takes to meet your needs.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: It's a small school, so within each major your options are limited.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: There are no separate applications at Clark for regular undergraduate programs, so once you're into the school you can choose any major.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Clark provides free shuttle services within a half mile of campus from 4pm until early in the morning.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Clark gives good academic scholarships, even for transfer students.

Weather: The winters are pretty harsh, but snow days are great. The campus has a lot of areas to relax outdoors when it gets nice outside.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

The students say it best: Clark is a great place to spend four important—perhaps the most important—years of your life. Those who go to Clark report being glad they went. They say that they learned what they wanted to learn in their major, had a lot of fun, and grew up in the process. No campus is perfect, but despite Clark’s flaws, students still manage to fall in love with it and pursue their degrees until the end. Clark’s strengths lie in its academics, its community, and the city in which it resides. Even though that same city gives rise to some of Clark’s largest problems, it also exemplifies the diversity that Clark strives to provide for its students on campus. The city’s restaurants also provide a welcome escape from Clark’s dreadful meal plan!

Although Clark suffers from a poor social scene, low enthusiasm for organized sports, New England weather, and the double-edged sword of apathy and tolerance, Clarkies leave the school realizing that they have just lived through an incredible academic and social experience. It is an experience that stays with them throughout their lives via Clark’s professional reputation, as well as the bonds formed with professors and fellow Clarkies. Students agree: By the time graduation day rolls around, you will be equipped to face the world as an educated adult, but you will wish you had just a little more time at Clark.
