Majors: The international relations program here at Clark University is okay. I think my personal experience could have been better had I more knowledge of what I wanted to do when I was younger.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: It is easy to declare your major and take the classes that you want. The best thing to do is to check the course offerings early as well as the general education requirements (know as P.L.Ss).

Also, from conversations with other students, I know that the university does a good job at offering students who are either undocumented or have D.A.C.A a decent/good scholarship. The best thing to do is to be in communication with the admission/financial aid office who (through your effort) can better understand your financial/citizen status. To get a great package you should have an awesome application.

Nightlife: There are some small parties here and there. If you are under 21 is it not as fun but there are some dive bars around campus to keep you somewhat entertained.

Local Atmosphere: Worcester is an older city that is working hard to improve itself. It used to be a booming industrial city but now it is trying to make the transition to both an equitable college town with some more specialized sector jobs in medicine. The main struggle is the poverty and battle against gentrification as the city goes about changing.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: I think the focus on "social change" is definitely uniquely Clark. Sometimes it maybe held as more of a thought than an actual pursuit. Usually students are hipsterish and quirky but that helps foster a more inclusive enviroment where you can more easily find your niche. Also as a small school you have many opportunities to get involved in many things.

Drug Safety: Like in any other college campus people use marijuana and drink alcohol. The university police will stop you if they see you so many people try not to be very blatant about it. If you do not want to drink or use drugs many people will understand and respect that decision.

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.
