4 College Student

Overall Experience: Overall its actually pretty good...I'm here for my education and I can get it at a good school with good people so Im happy.

2 College Student

Overall Experience: Career and internship opportunities are plenty for liberal arts majors but very little for science majors. Very enclosed within Worcester as well.

5 College Student

Campus Housing: Housing here is nice, especially freshman housing and junior/senior housing. A lot of options too

2 College Student

Athletics: Atheletics is not a big thing here. Do not come here for sports or big parties. The gym is very nice though!

4 College Student

Overall Experience: 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.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Great gym. D3 so not a large focus on sports

3 College Freshman

Athletics: If you're looking for a sports game to attend, you will have plenty of opportunities, but you won't likely find many other Clarkies cheering next to you. Aside from particular basketball, soccer, and lacrosse games, sports games aren't highly advertised or attended. As a student athlete, I do find the team bonding to be a pivotal part to my social life.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Professors here genuinely want to see you succeed, whether or not you are the brightest student in the room. The social life here can tend to get a little cliquey, but you can always try to meet new people through clubs. I find that I'm able to take part in many activities here, such as being a varsity athlete, and still am able to maintain a social life. Like many other schools, Clark is what you make of it. You need to take advantage of the opportunities you're given if you want to succeed. We may not be the most diverse group of students, but we are definitely a community. As for Worcester, just don't be stupid at night and you'll come to appreciate it.

1 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The RLH is unorganized, and uninterested in students. There are some good RAs and HDs. But I am mostly referring to the Dean of RLH and the overall sloppiness.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The gym is one of my favorite places on campus! Athletics aren't very big here, but they still exist.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors are pretty great. You can tell they love what they do. However it's really easy to just slide by here because it's so easy (and a little boring). RLH is absolutely horrendous. They do not care about the students and do not have any standards. There is also a housing problem because they didn't think ahead when assigning room, now there aren't enough.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus feels very safe and there is access to security personnel. If you are off campus help is only a phone call away.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So many graduates have gone on to do great things. Clarkies are such a tight knit group that alums look out for other alums. It is a good feeling to be able to say I am a Clarkie and hear about other people's experiences when they or their friends went to Clark.

Campus Housing: JSC dorms are great and have a strong sense of community, Wright felt small and not as warm.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I am on the cross country team and my teammates are my friends too. We go to the sports events and support our friends that are playing. But sports don't overshadow other events on campus, I think it is a good mix.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Had a difficult relationship with a roommate and the school helped resolve it for the best outcome for both of us. Teachers have been very easy to speak with and classmates take their education seriously.

Health & Safety: The university police are more agressive towards people of color. I am from the neighboorhood, so I feel safe walking around, but I feel I always have to keep my head down around the univerisity police. Thus, I do not feel safe around the university police.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Professors are an average really approachable and unerstanding. They go out of their way sometimes to make sure we understand topics.

2 College Junior

Overall Experience: Their is no alumni networking. And their is a huge lack of diversity in terms of employees being hired. Career services tries their best to help, but it also lacks the ability to cater to every student.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: It's not for everyone. Rooms are small, especially when sharing with another person. There is no sense of a "dorm community", everyone cares for themselves. RA's are nice people, but do very little to have events or community engagements, in which residents can partake and get to know each other. The cost is very expensive, living off campus is far much cheaper and better.

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.
