Computers: I think it's very helpful to have your own computer. While Clark's computer labs are not often full, when it's time for midterms and finals, they can get pretty crowded. Also, there is a network connection in every room.

Niche User

Computers: I've seen the computer lab be completely crowded during crunch times, but in the middle of the semester when not a lot of exams are taking place, the labs are empty. I recommend bringing your own PC.

Niche User

Computers: If you have the means, you would be absolutely foolish to go to any college without a computer. You don't need the fastest machine in the world, but you will be doing so much work and socializing on it. I couldn't imagine having to be at the mercy of a computer lab. Oh, and don't forget to buy a printer, too. You might be tempted to say, `Well, I'll just use the free paper in the lab,' but remember that everyone else has that same idea, too.

Niche User

Computers: The computer labs are crowded at certain times, but it really can't be predicted. But, they're great in terms of convenience.

Niche User

Computers: Bring your own computer. If you can afford it, invest in a laptop. Portability is key (i.e. for taking notes during study sessions or if your roommate wants to sleep while you work), and laptops are easily carried around from library to study lounge to cafeteria to Green (all of which locations have wireless).

Niche User

Facilities: All the facilities are pretty good. They are always expanding, so in about 50 years, Clark may be almost twice its current size.

Niche User

Facilities: All the facilities are decent, and they are making improvements to each slowly. The campus is set up pretty well so that everything is not too far of a walk, and you don't need to leave campus to find stuff to do.

Niche User

Facilities: Facilities are adequate and are kept clean and operational.

Niche User

Facilities: The gym is nice-it has a good amount of machines, and there normally isn't a wait. The computer labs are also very nice. The student center is great because it's the one central place, and you're always guaranteed to run into many familiar faces.

Niche User

Facilities: The gym is fairly decent for getting a good workout or lifting weights. The basketball courts are nice, but they are usually crowded. The library is huge but creepy when you get to those sections way off in the corners. Computer rooms get pretty crowded sometimes, other times they are dead, but they are also a bit diverse, using both Macs and PCs. The student center has pool tables with broken cues, and DJs that can really suck in music choice.

Niche User

Facilities: All the facilities are nice. Everything looks new and clean.

Niche User

Facilities: Clark has comfortable facilities. Many of the buildings are old and loved. The histories of the buildings give the campus its character. They give the University a sense of continuity.

Niche User

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.

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.
