Overall, I think so many people find a home at Clark that complaining about trivial things feels whiny! It's a welcoming and open community where 99% of people are very caring about your well-being and happiness. I love this school

I did not expect to come to the school and did not enjoy it my first semester. However, after my 2nd semester it as become a home to me. Worcester sucks, but that helps you to stay on campus and focus on your study. People are very nice here and professors are awesome! If your thinking of majoring in a science field though this may not be the most competitive school for that.

Eclectic student body. You can find a friend group no matter what you're interested in. High student interest in activism. Better than average dorms/housing. Worcester is diverse and has many cheap and good eats, but the Main South neighborhood surrounding Clark's campus can sometimes be sketchy.
