Diversity: Clark is relatively diverse, but too cliquish to be of any relevance.

Niche User

Diversity: About 10 percent of the students on campus are international students, and there's a good amount of variance between the American students, as well. Unfortunately, people find their clumps, so I'd recommend branching out and meeting new people; hang out in new groups you normally wouldn't.

Diversity: The campus is very diverse, and international students make up a large portion of the student population.

Niche User

Diversity: There is a bit of diversity. There are lots of international students from all over the globe. I have become friends with many different types of people from many different places.

Niche User

Diversity: You have everyone coming from a different part of the world-Japan, China, Thailand, India, Ukraine, and Spain, just to name a few.

Niche User

Diversity: It's more diverse than an average campus, but there's still a lot to be desired.

Niche User

Diversity: Diversity on campus is huge. We are not just racially diverse, but also ethnically, nationally, and socioeconomically. Each and every Clarkie is different, and the saying, `Categorizing people isn't something you can do here' is really true.

Niche User

Diversity: Diversity is one of the best things about the Clark campus. I visit friends at schools without diversity like Clark, and I feel like I am stuck in an Abercrombie & Fitch catalog. We have diversity of ethnicity and race, but more importantly, we have a diversity of ideas and background and class. This diversity is key in opening the minds of students.

Niche User

Diversity: The campus has a great deal of international students and a lot of international clubs.

Niche User

Diversity: Clark has one of the highest percentages of international students, which gives it a different feel than a lot of other schools in the area. I don't know about specific groups of people, but there is definitely a variety of people here. While there is the occasional splitting up of the groups, people interact with everyone else on a regular basis; it's hard not to in such a small school, which is nice because you feel like you can be friends with anyone.

Niche User

Diversity: Not a large population of African Americans, although the administration has been trying to change that. There is a lot of religious and ethnic diversity.

Niche User

Diversity: I come from a city where we have real diversity. When Clark says diverse, they mean international students, but most of the international students share the wealthy thing with a lot of the suburbanites. I thought diversity meant lots of ethnic groups and lots of income levels. But, the students are mostly middle class and up. I honestly don't have any close school friends who aren't white at Clark, which is kind of a first for me.

Niche User

Overall Experience: At times, it feels as though the school doesn't care very much about the individual students, but more about the institution as a whole. The school is very strict about transferring credits from other schools. I personally am interested in learning some things that Clark doesn't offer, and I have been told that I can't get credit for any of the classes I want to take.

Overall Experience: I loved Clark. I am glad I went, and I don't think I could've been happier anywhere else. The kids are very friendly and open-minded; it's also easy to meet many different kinds of people.

Niche User

Overall Experience: Clark is okay. I don't believe in the `true love' philosophy of schools, which says there is only one perfect school you can be happy at. I think most types of people can be happy here at Clark because it's a liberal arts school and there is plenty of choice intellectual work, as well as a lot of different campus groups. I don't think Clark is the best school I've ever seen, because as far as I can see, the people at Swarthmore have got to be the happiest, smartest people I've ever met, plus they can drink whenever without punishment, but Clark will get you through four years with friends and a degree worth having.

Niche User

Overall Experience: I sometimes think about what it would have been like if I went somewhere else-it could have been great, it could have been horrible, and I may never have met some of my friends. You can never regret or look back in life, except in order to remind yourself were you want to go.

Niche User

Overall Experience: I was happy in my four years at Clark. I was also happy to leave when it was time to graduate!

Niche User

Overall Experience: I never wish I was somewhere else. I love Clark.

Overall Experience: I am fully confident that my years spent at Clark were, and will be, the best times of my life. In high school, they lie to you when they tell you that they are preparing you for the real world and that they are preparing you to be an adult. Well, at Clark they never say that, but it happens anyway. Clark has made such a huge difference in my life that I honestly believe I would not be the person that I am today had I not come to Clark, met the people here, and been part of the community.

Niche User

Overall Experience: Clark offers amazing and unique experiences if you go after them. Studying abroad, the Fifth-Year-Free program, and special academic focuses like Holocaust and Genocide Studies can make your experience really meaningful, if you're interested. If you want to mindlessly drink your way through college, don't do it at Clark. If you want to interact and grow as a person, you can and will do that here. I wouldn't trade my four years at Clark for the world.

Niche User

Overall Experience: I loved Clark because of the people, and I have great memories. Even the bad ones had a purpose.

Niche User

Guys & Girls: I think the individuals at Clark are amazing; however, I wouldn't classify Clark as an `attractive' school.

Guys & Girls: There are hot guys and girls on campus, like anywhere, but some of them know they're good-looking, and those are the ones you avoid. Most people are fairly normal. There are more girls than guys, somewhere around 60 to 40, which makes it a bit easier for the guys to find someone. But, WPI is the reverse, so girls don't have to go far.

Niche User

Guys & Girls: There's a mix at Clark. I didn't find too many that appealed to me until my junior year, but that was probably just me.

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.
