Facilities: Much of the Clark campus is made of old buildings much in need of repair, but the newer facilities, such as the University Center and Maywood suites, are very nice and in great condition.

Niche User

Facilities: Clark seems to be working on improving their athletic facilities, and so far, so good.

Niche User

Facilities: The Dolan Field House is new, so it's a really nice place to watch or play a game. The computer labs could be nicer. The main one in the library is usually pretty crowded, but once you get a computer, they are nice. The UC has the mailboxes, residential dining hall (referred to as caf), and Bistro, so most people filter through there at some point or another during the day. The building, itself, is pretty nice, and it has a hall for visiting lecturers, dances, or whatever.

Niche User

Facilities: The facilities on campus vary. Like any college, whatever has the most funding behind it has the nicest facilities. The sciences just got a fancy building, and they're building an extension for the major International Development and Social Change because it has tripled in the number of applicants in the last three years. But, the dining hall is in an old gym and the student rec center is ancient. There are two athletic facilities: one very modern, one `60s era. Some of the dorms are very nice, some adequate, and some are awful. It's a mixed bag.

Niche User

Facilities: Yes, everything is nice. Most places are being done over or being updated!

Niche User

Campus Dining: The food comes in two types: almost edible and nearly edible. Expect to go shopping a lot.

Niche User

Campus Dining: Campus food is never great unless it's parent's weekend, and Clark isn't any different. The Bistro has some good food, though, and it is definitely preferable to the caf. It's more like a restaurant than a cafeteria, which is nice.

Niche User

Campus Dining: The food in the cafeteria is interesting. It's edible, though.

Niche User

Campus Dining: The food included with the meal plan isn't anything to brag about, but Worcester has some of the best restaurants I've ever been to. Shrewsbury Street is filled with amazing places to eat.

Niche User

Campus Dining: Food on campus is okay. They try to have options for every type of eater, but if you're a vegetarian, it can be hard unless you really love salad.

Niche User

Campus Dining: The food on campus is fair. It is typical cafeteria food, but there are always a lot of options, so there is never a day when you can't find anything to eat.

Niche User

Campus Dining: The food is great in terms of convenience and quantity, but its quality leaves much to be desired.

Niche User

Campus Dining: The food is not impressive but suffices, and it can occasionally be pretty good.

Niche User

Campus Dining: It's good for the first few weeks, until you begin to notice that you had the same food a few days ago. Your best bet would be the stir-fry. Don't shy away from the waffle maker or the cereal section, either. Desperate times call for desperate measures when you're hungry.

Niche User

Campus Dining: The food on campus is decent-the caf offers a lot of options, including a daily sandwich bar and other healthy options.

Niche User

Campus Dining: You have three choices on campus: the Caf, the Bistro, and Jazzman's. The Caf is buffet-style and one meal price for all-you-can-eat, and there are different options for all your dietary needs, like vegan and kosher. The Bistro, affectionately called `the Beast,' is more for fast food and has a nicer atmosphere for study groups. Jazzman's Café is the nicest and has really yummy pastries, muffins, and desserts. It also offers yogurt parfaits, sandwiches, and salads.

Niche User

Campus Dining: Blah! Clark food sucks. Order out whenever possible, or cook for yourself.

Niche User

Campus Dining: The food on campus is terrible.

Niche User

Campus Dining: I hate the food. It's bland and pricey. As soon as I could, I dropped the meal plan like a stack of hot bricks and moved off campus to an apartment with a kitchen. Invest in a microwave and mini-fridge, because you are going to want to eat in.

Niche User

Campus Dining: I'm not a huge fan of the food; you just have to pick and choose what you like in the Café and Bistro.

Niche User

Campus Dining: The Bistro is decent, Café is horrible.

Niche User

Campus Dining: It is very easy to be vegan or vegetarian at Clark. The salad bar and vegan area are open at every meal, and the Café is also stocked with soy milk.

Niche User

Campus Housing: The dorms are good. I would suggest freshmen live in freshman dorms-they're great for meeting people. Maywood and Blackstone are really nice buildings, but all of them have good-sized rooms and closet space.

Niche User

Campus Housing: As a freshman, you want the freshman experience of community. So, make sure you are placed in either Bullock or Wright-both are freshman dorms. Maywood Street Hall is the best upperclassman dorm. Just make sure you do the apartment thing before you graduate. It's worth it.

Niche User

Campus Housing: The dorms are better than most schools I've seen. Dodd has the biggest doubles next to Maywood, and Johnson has the biggest singles aside from the year-round houses. Some of the houses could use fixing. Maywood is the best all around.

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.
