My favorite experiences are leadership for marching band, my dual majors, for physics and mathematics professors are excellent and enjoyable to work with and collaborate with, and I love having my own suite on campus.

Clarion is an average size school. People are very friendly for the most part and there are plenty of clubs. If you're looking for a college with lots of racial and culture diversity this isn't really the school for you as most of the students are white. Bring a heavy jacket for the winter!

I love how my school gives so many opportunities to get involved. All of the clubs are so welcoming, which isn't at all what I expected going in. It's unique in how you can get to know your professors so well that they become like friends. I have actually been to some of their houses. It's great and I wouldn't want it any other way.
