I have only been attending Clarion University for one semester and so far it is amazing. The campus is awesome, and everyone you meet here is friendly. The only thing that I do not like about the campus is the massive hill I have had to walk up and down to class. If you are not in shape before you come here, you will be afterwards! The professors here are outstanding and are insanely nice and understanding. There are many good things about Clarion, and listing them all would take forever!

As an online student, my experiences so far have been great. From speaking with admissions to the registrars office and with the advising team and course professors and other online students, It's as if I am on campus. Everyone has been so friendly and concerning and wanting the best outcome to happen. I have felt welcomed and as a part of the university from the first conversation. I am glad I chose Clarion University as the school to fulfill my degree needs!

As an online student, I have been linked to graduates who are in my area locally. My advising counselor was able to let me know where I can take courses and who I can contact locally if I needed assistance. I was set up with a network event in my area that several Clarion alum would be attending and I was able to meet them. It has been an awesome experience so far!
