4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Many upperclassmen students stay in off-campus housing within very close proximity to school.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are lots of delicious local places but they are either run-down and cheap or very up-scale and pricey--there's no in-between.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Clark's absence of greek life means that drinking-heavy parties and culture is not heavily emphasized, there's more of a smoking culture.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The school's administration is not perfect, but they make noticeable efforts to stay in touch with students and help them create the type of campus atmosphere they want to see.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: More help with the terribly high cost of college would always be nice, but Clark is generally very generous with aid.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Because of high demand, there are always multiple vegetarian/vegan options. The cafe is very dependable in this respect, but options in the bistro are less enjoyable and plentiful. Dining services is responsive to student requests and comments.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is an integral part of the first year experience--it's where all social relationships form and develop. Rooms are spacious and comfy and most are very centrally located on campus, meaning walks to class, the library, or the dining hall are never too long.

4 College Student

Campus Food: It's great; the cooks put a lot of effort into making the food. At the main dining hall, there is a board where students can place sticky notes with suggestions, criticisms or praise. All comments are read, put into consideration, and responded to.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Health services is a hike but they're great and so's UP.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I do wish we had a football team.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I'm independent but still super close to classes.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Love going off campus for dinner. Great prices at a lot of places too. $5 large pizza all day every day.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: You gotta know people who throw down off campus but if you're involved in clubs you shouldn't have trouble making a friend who'll invite you to parties.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Freshman housing rocks. Nice buildings, great social scene, clean, pretty, nice. Some of the upper classmen halls are nice but if you get a bad lottery number or can't afford to live in the nicer upperclassman halls you get the privilege of living in an out-dated building that rarely gets cleaned and has few amenities.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I like living on campus. Residents are very friendly and everyone is extremely nice to their peers. Social atmosphere is definitely lacking. Worcester is an area that needs more development and areas to go. Without a car, its very difficult for college students to get around.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot of housing options but most of the houses are old and have a lot of problems- with heating...

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are so many restaurants you just have to be willing to take a walk

4 College Freshman

Administration: It is strict were it needs to be in order to keep everyone safe

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: Without the scholarships I would not be able to afford to go here! Financial aid made it easy, they answered any and all questions, and worked well with my family.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I'm not really interested in partying, but I know there are quite a few over the weekend. However, I have heard from my friends that do party that the party scene is lacking.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food in the caf is always decent, the best part about going there is the staff, they are all warm friendly people

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is a great way to get to know everyone. We filled out a survey over the summer that allowed me to be properly paired with my current roommate-we share some of the same interests and we clicked. The residence halls are very clean, and the staff is very friendly!

4 College Freshman

Administration: The amount of strictness the campus has is a great amount

3 College Freshman

Athletics: we are not a very spirited campus when it comes to sports

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
