2 College Junior

Nightlife: Bars near campus are absolute dives, and not in a good way.

3 College Junior

Weather: Worcester is a four season city. If you're not prepared for the cold/slush/rain/heat, don't bother.

3 College Junior

Computers: Printing costs are astronomical, as many professors rely on .pdf articles instead of textbooks. Printers are often unreliable or out of toner. There is often a "rush" on printers that makes it difficult to get things printed in a timely fashion

Parking: I don't know too much about this.

Overall Experience: My time at Clark was the best time of my life. The people, classes, environment, and opportunities were unbelievable and I know I would not have gotten any of those anywhere else.

2 Recent Alumnus

Weather: The weather kinda sucks. It is so cold and snowy during the winter but the good part is that you aren't really every going very far.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Strictness: Administration is involved in student life but not negatively.

5 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: I have never experienced a more accepting, warm, and welcoming environment. Clark is extremely diverse and a wonderful atmosphere of collaboration.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: The professors are amazing! They really care about their students and the success of their students.

4 Recent Alumnus

Majors: I wish there was more focus on how to find jobs post graduation.

3 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: I do not drink or use any drugs but I still had a fantastic time in college. That's the best part of Clark, there is not judgement or pressure to take part if you don't want to.

3 Recent Alumnus

Nightlife: There is a ton of stuff to do no matter what your interests.

5 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: Whether you are on or off campus, it's great! Housing is affordable, clean, and very roomy.

5 Recent Alumnus

Local Atmosphere: The community loves Clarkies! and we love them too!

3 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: I did not qualify for financial aid.

4 Recent Alumnus

Computers: It's easier to have your own computer on campus but tech support and the network is excellent.

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: It is right on the edge of campus and it is really reasonably priced. A majority of upper class students live off campus.

Recent Alumnus

Transportation: I am not the most knowledgeable about this subject because I rarely left campus on long travels and when I did, I had my own car.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: The facilities, especially all the renovations, are really impressive and available to all students. There isn't much focus on varsity sports for non-athletes but it is still a fun competitive environment for those who are.

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: The Main South area has endless options of restaurants and almost all of them are small local spots that are very friendly and welcoming to the Clark community. Most of the students even develop friendships with the business owners and many Clarkies even work in many of the restaurants. There is a great variety no matter what hour of the day or night.

2 College Freshman

Academics: Not many students interested in academics.

Campus Dining: Its alright. Wish the dining hall was larger and held more seating areas so its not a competition to find seating, but the food is okay. Needs a little more variety though.

2 College Freshman

Computers: More specifically in the dorm ROOMS, the wifi can be absolutely SUCKY. Most of the students have been complaining about this for months and it would be nice if they get some routers in the dorms...

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Health and Safety on campus is okay. Clark is in Worcester, which is not the safest cities. One just has to be smart when going out (either alone or in a group).

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.
