4 College Freshman

Academics: At Clark, you are definitely challenged in your classes. Every student works hard and is smart enough to handle the work load.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: Clark is unique in that it is an extremely small school, but there is still so much diversity present. In fact, there is about a ten% international student rate on campus.

Drug Safety: If you are seen with anything you shouldn't have, action is taken and you will be punished.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Clark takes enforcing its administration policies very seriously.

College Freshman

Weather: Our campus is small enough that it is easy to get around on foot no matter what the weather is.

College Freshman

Parking: I do not have a car on campus, but I have friends that do and they have said that finding parking is generally not an issue.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Though I received an academic scholarship, college is still an investment. Clark is very generous with scholarship money, however I am still struggling to pay for it.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are so many awesome places to eat off-campus and there are not too far away from Clark. Plus, there are tons of places that deliver on campus too (and during late-night hours!). Having great, not expensive pizza delivered late at night has become a ritual with my friends and I!

Guys & Girls: Everyone at Clark has a variety of interests which definitely makes it easy to meet people different from yourself. I've found that the types of people I was friends with in high school are there, however, I've also become friendly with people who I never thought would be my friend. Needless to say, the people at Clark are definitely one of a kind.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I am majoring in political science and hoping to double minor in history and geography as well. Every single one of our departments at Clark is amazing and definitely challenging because all undergraduates are required to complete what is known as a Capstone Seminar their senior year. It is basically the equivalent of a senior project.

College Freshman

Majors: I have not yet had an internship at Clark.

Facilities: We have an amazing academic opportunity to receive our master's degrees. If we are able to maintain a 3.4 GPA between sophomore and senior year we are eligible to apply for the Accelerated Master's Program where students come back for a tuition-free fifth year and receive their master's. It is truly a program unique to Clark.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: All of our facilities are amazing since Clark has put so much money into renovating what was already there. This past September, the new fitness center was opened and was made to be double the size of what it was before. In addition, there used to be a street that ran through campus, making it hard to feel like you were really at a university. Now, there is no longer a street running through and there is definitely a bigger feeling of community present on campus.

Campus Dining: Clark's on-campus dining options are literally the best. 99% of the food is delicious all of the time. There is so much variety and choice. The cafeteria also is environmentally friendly. Everything about eating here is amazing.

Nightlife: I am distanced from the party scene so I do not know much about it other than it exists and people have fun with it.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: The new LEEP program is a great addition to Clark University. Also, the design your own major option is more flexible than one would find elsewhere. Additionally, the fifth-year tuition free masters opportunity sets Clark apart from so many other universities.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Green spaces are well maintained and used. The library is one of the best features. The classrooms are good in terms of size, but seem a bit outdated.

Off-Campus Dining: There are tons of restaurants in the area--Vietnamese, fast-food style, diner-style, breakfast places, doughnut places, etc.

5 College Freshman

Weather: I love New England weather. It rains sometimes, yes, it is cold sometimes, yes, but that's better than being burning hot and sweaty all the time.

Overall Experience: People here are accepting, for the most part. The professors are AMAZING and if anything, I would choose to come back because of them.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing isn't really off campus because the campus is open, so the limits of it are unclear. Prices go up in the residence hall that is further away from everything, but it is new and fancy.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus Police do a good job keeping students safe. Drugs and alcohol are somewhat regulated but not really. There is a lot of effort put towards educating the students about drug, alcohol, and sexual safety, and there are many resources for us to turn to for help.

Athletics: I do not know too much about the sports scene, but word on the street is that it is good. People like the facilities.

3 College Freshman

Computers: Computer labs are good and accessible. Printing is annoying, but the price is okay. Laptops are important for homework and the like. The network is unreliable in the dorm rooms, and frequently drops out. It is easy to reconnect, just annoying. However, literally everywhere else on campus, the connection is strong and reliable.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Scholarship applications were easy, however I did not receive financial aid because of the scholarship, though it would have been handy.

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.
