College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus isn't in the safest location, and there have been a number of muggings on and around campus at night.

College Freshman

Parking: I know most people don't bring their cars because apparently parking in the college garage is expensive.

College Freshman

Diversity: The University is known for its generous financial aid toward students. Most of the students here came because of the sizable aid they got, so I would say 80 percent of the student body is from more humble backgrounds. Ethnically, it is very diverse but not so much politically. I think almost everyone rooted for Barack Obama. There are a few openly homosexual people on campus, but our campus has a very open environment, so I'm sure we must be diverse sexually.

College Freshman

Drug Safety: In my circle, drug use isn't an issue at all, but among other friends and acquaintances, I know people who use marijuana on an almost weekly basis.

College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Police seem to be fairly lenient from the stories I've heard. Still, don't do anything stupid, and definitely don't drink in freshman dorms.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are nice. They are a little old-1950s to 1970s-except for the newer buildings for older students, which opened in the past couple of years. Wright Hall and Bullock Hall are known for being a bit more party-oriented than others on campus. Dodd Hall, the all-girls hall, is clean and very well kept.

College Freshman

Parking: You can bring a car as a freshman. You get a lot in the parking complex but must pay for it. If you get one of those spots, then it is very easy to park.

College Freshman

Diversity: Clark is very welcoming to all types of people. Almost everyone on campus is good friends with an international student. However, politically speaking, it is a mostly liberal campus.

College Freshman

Drug Safety: Eh, it depends on what group you are in. If you don't hang out with the drug crowd, you never see it. Hookah smoking and drinking are a bit more obvious.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a ton of restaurants in Worcester and all different types. On Shrewsbury Street, there is a collection of Indian and Chinese restaurants. Within walking distance, there is Da Lat, a cheap and wonderful Vietnamese place; Webster House, a local-run Greek-style place and a favorite of the locals; and a number of nearby Chinese places. The best Chinese food place that delivers-which is very important-is the Ming House.

College Freshman

Weather: It's typical New England weather-sunny one day, snowing the next. Bring a mix of clothing-T-shirts for the fall and spring, but warm coats and hats for the winter.

College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Worcester reflects the school in many cultural ways-it truly is a melange of different people. We are surrounded by other schools, including Holy Cross and Worcester State College. The Worcester Art Museum is wonderful-it's small but has a lot to offer.

College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The typical Clarkie is intelligent, cultivated, open minded, and friendly. The types of boys and girls vary widely, but most all of the students I have met here fit the previous criteria.

College Freshman

Academics: I came to Clark University because they are known to have a good international relations program, as well as having an outstanding psychology department. The teachers are very intelligent and encourage every student to work to their full potential, as well as encouraging them to ask for help. The workload is slightly stressful in its amount.

College Freshman

Greek Life: There is no Greek life here, unfortunately.

College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'm relatively happy here. It's really expensive, and I'm not sure it's worth the cost to me, but the teacher-student interaction is good. My professors are always available.

College Freshman

Campus Dining: The food is good, but it gets repetitive. You can use your cash card at Fantastic Pizza if you want a change of pace.

College Freshman

Computers: There are computer labs and printers available, but I like having my laptop in my room for last-minute stuff and e-mail access.

College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are a lot of robberies, but more or less, I feel safe.

College Freshman

Athletics: Sports aren't big here-I wish they were. People on the teams seem to care though, but they don't get much support.

College Freshman

Drug Safety: The drug scene is noticeable, but easily avoidable. It is mostly "light" drugs.

College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The boys are few and far between, but the ones that are here come in all forms, shapes, sizes, and types. It's the same with the girls-there's a little of everything.

College Freshman

Overall Experience: I would come here again. It's a very welcoming campus.

College Freshman

Weather: Weather is very cold and can be variable. Bring everything-rain gear, snow gear, fall stuff-for all school year-long.

College Freshman

Nightlife: Parties are there if you want them, and there are some clubs off campus.

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.
