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).

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: If you look around down Main Street or Park Ave, you can see SO many different ethnic varieties of food (Hispanic, Asian, African/Caribbean, Indian etc). It's a great area to try something totally new. These restaurants seem to be very aware of the college students in the area and do often accommodate with student discounts and monthly deals.

Guys & Girls: I'm a female myself and I think the majority of females on this campus are attractive and really chill. I've had a few encounters with nasty females, but overall, it's easy to make friends with the females on campus. They are very hipster, and are known for their hipster appearances, which makes Clark really awesome.

Campus Strictness: The students seem to respect the strict policies that are enforced and are allowed to voice their opinions when they disagree with a policy. The administration really does pay attention to what the students say.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: I haven't had much of an issue. It takes a while to get used to Worcester's bus transportation system. I come from Philadelphia where the buses run very late into the night. Worcester's buses stop running pretty early.

College Freshman

Majors: I am getting a lot of help for deciding upon a major, but as of right now, I cannot say successful is the major program application process. I've heard a lot of students who are happy with the process though.

College Freshman

Majors: I'm not sure yet. I want to do History with an International Studies Stream concentration. The program is great because it allows me all these opportunities to do internships and study abroad as the years go by.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have had the time of my life at Clark. The campus is so chill and the teachers are really great, they obviously enjoy teaching students. I've made some of the best friends at this school and I wouldn't exchange my experience for anything.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have only visited the off campus housing and from what I've seen, I'm thoroughly impressed with how they look.

College Freshman

Greek Life: I love that we have no Greek life on campus! It's such a chill atmosphere with many clubs and activities that I think a Greek life would dominate the campus and kill the vibe.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: No one pressures anyone to drink or try anything. I always feel comfortable going to parties with friends because I know I won't be pressured to do anything I'm not comfortable doing.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Financial aid at Clark is amazing

4 College Freshman

Diversity: In terms of the international students, the diversity is astounding! For domestic diversity, the White population still dominates the campus. The campus is very open about sexual orientation and political beliefs. Economic backgrounds could be talked about a little more on campus. There is a clear distinction between the wealthy and non-wealthy students.

Parking: I have no use for a car on campus, so I'm not sure.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: Clark is not exactly known for its nightlife. Though there are parties pretty much every weekend, not everyone on campus goes to them.

Local Atmosphere: There's lots to do in Worcester but I often find myself wanting to stay on campus for the activities there!

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: A program we have is called Clark Escort Service where you can call their number and they'll drive you anywhere within a half mile of campus. Every student uses it as a way to safely navigate Worcester.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I love all the classes I have taken in the political science department as of right now. The professors are wonderful and are engaged in the field outside of class.

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.
