3 College Freshman

Majors: I'm currently a prospective geography major. Considering we have the best geography department in the country, there's really nothing to complain about in that sense. Unfortunately, if I decide I don't want to do geography, I don't see myself having very many options here, which can be frustrating.

College Freshman

Majors: I would like to have an internship. It's amazing experience and can be good in determining what you really want to do when it comes to starting a career.

Off-Campus Housing: The apartments around campus are amazing, and close by. It's nice that we have the option to get off campus a little bit, even though most of the time, they are basically part of campus anyway. I just like the newly refurbished old tri-levels.

Campus Housing: Nothing much to say. I need a place to live. Clark provides a place to live. I've definitely seen worse, but I've also definitely seen better.

Nightlife: There's not usually a ton of big things going on. But hanging with a bunch of friends on the weekend is more my cup of tea anyway. I would like to have the option of going to bigger parties though once and a while.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are some good places if you know where to look, but going around main south isn't something that people like to do often.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I feel as though I'm getting a great education. However, I'm used to an extremely rigorous high school curriculum, and was pleasantly surprised to find academics don't take up quite as much time as they used to. In other words, I'm being challenged (most of the time) but never feel like academics take over my life.

Drug Safety: Drug culture on campus is very prevalent, but I've never encountered a situation where anything is abused. Also, there is never really any pressure to do anything you're not comfortable with. There are plenty other things on campus to do to occupy your time.

Health & Safety: I feel relatively safe on campus. I think the school is doing everything they can to keep us the safest possible. The only reason i don't give it five is because things do happen. We are an open campus in the middle of the worst pat of a big city. Things are bound to go wrong sometimes.

Nightlife: House parties get closed by the police very often since there are lots of families in the surrounding neighborhoods. But there are so good clubs around and they often have college nights and parties. Most students use the school escort to a point then take a cab the rest of the way. Also some parties provide shuttles from campus to the clubs and you only pay a small amount like $1.

3 College Freshman

Computers: There are computers available in the library and Academic Commons, but during crunch weeks its hard to get a free computer. Most of the residence halls also have multimedia rooms with computers which are very convenient.

Off-Campus Dining: There is a large variety of Asian, African, South American and Hispanic restaurants in the area. Most of them are within walking distance of campus and have discounts for students with an ID card.

Drug Safety: I do not actually really see people drinking. Very few people smoke but they hide to do it.

Campus Strictness: If you are caught with illegal stuff you would get in trouble. Also there are police around to enforce the law and make sure everyone is safe.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I think its easier and safer to live on campus. The dorms are close to each other and so are the classroom. You do not need to walk long distances to get to class. The gym and library are like right in the middle of campus which is a good idea. The housing lottery is okay, you just need to make sure you fill the form early.

Academics: The different departments usually find companies and organizations with internship/job opportunities for students and help with the application process and all. Depending on the major sometimes the work load is insane but usually manageable. Being a specific major is definitely easier since you have more guidance on which classes to take and all that.

Local Atmosphere: Its a very old city, but very diverse. There are many different nationalities present in the area. Also there are about 8 other colleges all about 2 miles apart. There are definitely cultural events and other kinds of concerts and productions that take place all year round. For outdoor people there are things like skating rings and skiing in the city. In terms of safety its like every populated city, you need to be street wise and avoid walking alone at night and in quite, isolated areas.

4 College Freshman

Majors: My major is very popular on campus. Well most majors are very popular and most people double. You get hands on experience for the major and we get to assist professors and grad students undertaking research. Even though I am a science major I am taking art class so the program is quite flexible. I am not too concerned about finding jobs because with science you can also enter different research organizations or do personal research.

Majors: I just had to fill a form to enter the major. From there I am taking classes that would help me meet the requirements for graduation.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: Clark has shuttles to other colleges nearby and two malls in the area. On week nights there is a share van system that students can use to get around; so like going to CVS or Walgreens you can use that and its free. Also the city bus system is sort of reliable and easy to use. It is also very affordable. Sometimes the buses are late and when it snows they do not run. There are also zip cars available but there are only two so you have to book them early to get them.

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.
