Athletics: Clark is not really a sports school. Most sports-other than football-are available, but it is not a sports school like Duke or UNC.

Niche User

Athletics: The sports teams at this school are terrible. It actually makes our school better because there are no big-headed jocks who think they run the world.

Niche User

Athletics: Clark is not a big sports school, but all those involved treat it like it is. The intramural sports are fun, less stressful and demanding, and you get to play on teams with all your friends.

Niche User

Athletics: The sports teams aren't discussed to a great extent, but they do establish certain social groups for people to be involved in.

Niche User

Athletics: Varsity sports are present, but not huge, on campus. Going to sporting events is fun, though. Intramurals are pretty popular and a great way to play without committing time to practice.

Niche User

Athletics: Basketball is good, volleyball is really good! Who can disregard girls in booty shorts running, jumping, and diving everywhere on the ground for a ball?

Niche User

Athletics: Basketball is the big thing, because there is no football at Clark. Since the school is so small, sports are fun to watch, and you know the people playing. Intramural sports are really big with pretty much everyone who gets involved.

Niche User

Athletics: Varsity sports are fun, but don't expect to win very much. Intramurals are tons of fun.

Niche User

Athletics: IMs are really popular, but they tend to be made up of people who are already friends.

Niche User

Athletics: The popularity of sports is definitely growing at Clark. I was never really that involved or into them, so I'm not sure.

Niche User

Athletics: Sports aren't too big, but there are lots of opportunities to join.

Niche User

Athletics: The basketball players can pretty much get away with anything they want, but the rest of the sports teams are kept on a tight leash. The IM sports can be really fun and better than the real thing.

Niche User

Athletics: Sports? Clark has sports? We don't have much school pride when it comes to sports that I have seen, but games are fun to watch!

Niche User

Athletics: Varsity is not a big thing. IM is well loved, and the IM people are really into it. Sports aren't a huge deal at Clark, mostly because we're not that good.

Off-Campus Housing: Clark has a rule that you can't move off campus until your junior year. When you do move off campus, there are a ton of apartments two minutes from campus, and they're not that expensive.

Niche User

Off-Campus Housing: A lot of people move into houses around campus junior and senior year, but a lot of those houses are Clark-owned. It can be a pain to deal with landlords and have to worry about finding a place to live off campus. Most people, unless they commute, live on campus or within a few blocks of it.

Niche User

Off-Campus Housing: Housing off campus is pretty comparable in price to the dorms, but I don't think it is worth it. It is nice to have people clean your bathrooms, take your garbage, and be on call if anything goes wrong.

Niche User

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is generally great. It's a better deal than on-campus living, and plenty of it is available right next to campus.

Niche User

Off-Campus Housing: You can't move off campus until junior year, and it's only worth it if you aren't on the meal plan-cooking in the dorms is a hassle and a half. It is cheaper, especially if you want your own room, but there are extra responsibilities that are a pain.

Niche User

Off-Campus Housing: It depends where you are looking. Some apartments are not so nice, and some are okay. If you prefer apartment living, it may be better to go with the buildings owned by Clark.

Niche User

Off-Campus Housing: The apartments in the area are usually overpriced and not well-maintained. However, many find them to be decent alternatives to living in the dorms.

Niche User

Off-Campus Housing: Housing off campus is an option as a junior and senior-it's definitely worth it and easy. The Office of Residential Life and Housing has lists of all available apartments, which makes it easy to find what you're looking for.

Niche User

Off-Campus Housing: Stay on campus as long as you can! It's cheaper, the price includes Internet, all utilities, and the custodial service, and you make more friends that way, that is as long as you don't hide in your room all day.

Niche User

Off-Campus Housing: It's convenient to live in off-campus apartments because you actually feel like an adult! Plus, you get your own kitchen and get to eat real food!

Niche User

Off-Campus Housing: There is a lot of off-campus housing. I never lived off campus, and I probably wouldn't encourage it. It's cheaper to live in the dorms, most of the time. With apartments, you often need to sign a lease. With a dorm, I think there's more of a sense of security and closeness.

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.
