Off-Campus Housing: If you want to live off campus, I'd say to do it after sophomore year. Early on, it is good to be part of the Clark community.

Niche User

Off-Campus Housing: Some people like living in the dorms, others prefer living off campus. If you smoke at all, you are better off living off campus.

Niche User

Off-Campus Housing: Is it worth it? Heck yeah, it's worth it! Off-campus parties-that is all I have to say.

Niche User

Off-Campus Housing: Personally, I lived in a dorm all four years, but some friends of mine had an easy time getting an apartment and really enjoyed it.

Niche User

Parking: It's not bad parking, that is until it starts to snow. When it snows, they shut down half of all parking, so it's a big hassle. The Clark outdoor parking lot is the most economical choice.

Niche User

Parking: Parking on the street in a city is always a pain, but Clark has a bunch of student lots, a garage, and a commuter lot, so if you bring a car, there'll be a place to put it. The garage is nice because you don't have to scrape your car in the winter. Don't forget to send in the parking form if you're going to have a car on campus, because with all years allowed to have cars, the spots can fill up pretty fast.

Niche User

Parking: They just improved on our parking garage recently, and it's fairly pricey to park there. Parking off campus is a hassle, especially when it snows.

Niche User

Parking: There is plenty of free parking.

Niche User

Parking: There's not a lot of parking available, but I am almost always able to find at least one spot relatively close to my housing.

Niche User

Parking: There are lots of different options. You can get permits to park in an outdoor lot or in the garage, or you can chose to park on the street. On-street parking is not too bad in good weather, but the winter weather parking bans cause problems from around December until March.

Niche User

Parking: When I first got to Clark, I paid 25 dollars for a semester to park in the cheap-o lot. Now the cheap-o lot is the only one left besides the garage, and the price has gone up to over 100 dollars for the year! If you want to avoid the cost, you can find sneaky little spots to park other than the lots on campus, but it's usually a trial-and-error process that has to be repeated each semester. That means you can wind up paying the cost of a cheap-o parking decal in tickets until you find a consistently free spot. Plus, the snow in the winter makes it 10 times harder, and you will want a safe, reliable place to put your car.

Niche User

Parking: It's okay. Crowded, because everyone parks around the campus, but it can be done if you don't mind walking a little bit. It's difficult in the snow, because when they plow, they close off half the street to parking, and it snows a lot here. Lots of people get stickers for the parking lots, too.

Niche User

Parking: It is easy to park if you pay the fee for a spot in the garage.

Niche User

Parking: Parking is definitely an issue, particularly in the winter during the parking bans. But, everything is close on campus, so you never have to walk too far, even if you can't get a good parking spot.

Niche User

Parking: There is usually enough parking for those with permits, but commuters may have difficulty finding spaces in the lots.

Niche User

Parking: I never really had a problem parking my car. Be careful in the winter with the parking ban-your car could be towed.

Niche User

Parking: Make sure you read the signs, because you will get ticketed. The garage is expensive to park in, so think long and hard before bringing your car up.

Niche User

Weather: We've got four seasons, so bring it all! It gets really cold in the winter, so make sure you have a quality winter jacket. Don't try to look cute; it gets way too cold for that.

Niche User

Weather: The weather is uncomfortable and unpredictable. You will need clothes for the hottest day in summer and the coldest day in winter.

Niche User

Weather: It's especially hot in the dorms in the early fall and late spring, and it's cold enough to make someone's balls shrink in the winter.

Niche User

Weather: New England weather is unpredictable, so bring everything you think you might need. It gets really cold in the winter and really hot in the summer; there will be lots of rain, but also a lot of clear days. Just be prepared for anything, although sometimes it's fun not to be.

Niche User

Weather: It ranges from warm to frozen during the academic year. Most of the year, the dorm rooms themselves are pretty hot. I would suggest bringing some shorts and a bunch of T-shirts, as well as a lot of sweaters, sweatshirts, and warm pants for the winter months. Don't forget a warm winter coat, sturdy boots, a hat, and gloves for the trek to the caf during a snowstorm.

Niche User

Weather: The weather is typical for New England. People would be well recommended to bring clothing for just about all weather conditions short of a sandstorm.

Niche User

Weather: Think of what Eskimo's wear, and you'll be good.

Niche User

Weather: It's cold in the winter, so definitely bring a parka, gloves, scarves, hats, and whatever else you can think of, especially if you're from somewhere warm and aren't used to two feet of snow and minus-30 wind chills. It gets really icy in the winter, too, so boots are a good call. In the summer and spring, though, it's gorgeous, and people hang out on the Green with friends or study outside, so shorts and T-shirts are important, too. Temps range from 10 below to over 90, so bring clothes for everything.

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.
