3 College Junior

Party Scene: Depends on What You're Into – Because we are located in the ghetto of worcester going to the clubs sometimes ends up with bad experiences. Many creepers, etc. Most Clarkies usually party at off campus housing. Howerver, because we are such a small student body, there will be weekends where there are no parties to go to (unless you have the right contacts)

3 College Junior

Diversity: therefore, we have diversity! Clarkies are also very open to different religions, ethnicities and sexual orientations. However, most of the student body has a liberal mindset.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: New Improvements – The dorms are okay, but have recently been revamped and made even better. A year ago a new state of the art dorm for upperclassmen was built and is a really nice apartment style building made up of suites. This year some of the freshman dorms are also being remodeled to improve dorm life.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Our campus has many available options to ensure safety and security while walking around campus during late hours, however, I would not necessarily feel safe walking alone at night. Crime rate is moderate, but we have many resources such as walking and driving escorts and our own police department responds very quickly.

3 College Junior

Parking: To park in the parking lot, it costs 330 for the year. It is not that bad, but for those who are of low income it is often not attainable. It is difficult to find parking outside and you often get tickets. Also the winter weather/ snow is terrible for those who park outside.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Hookah and Occasional Drinking Are Most Popular – Clark University does not tolerate drinking or drug use. The institution will write you up 3 times and expel you after that. A lot of people resort to smoking hookah, which is not really a drug. Others drink occassionaly. For the most part, it is the ones 21 or older that drink and throw parties.

3 College Junior

Technology: There Hours to Access a Computer Are Phenemonal, the Printing Quota Is Not. The computer labs at Clark University are always accessible. The only time it gets overbearing is during finals and midterms, but the hours to use one of the computers are great. To accomadate for the crowding that occurs around those times, the Academic Commons prolongs their hours of operation to the maximum of 6 am in the morning. The printing quota is very inconvenient. This year we have around 14 dollars to print.

3 College Senior

Campus Quality: Accelerated Master's Program – My school offers a free, accelerated fifth year's Master's program to students who retain a GPA of 3.25 or above. I think this is a marvelous opportunity.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Decent Enough – The off-campus housing selection is something I'm not too familiar with, however people seem to enjoy their experiences in them. The area is considerably unsafe, however, and this can be a downside.

3 College Senior

Campus Food: Not as Great as It Could Be – The dining hall is big and nice for socializing, however, there is only one and as the food options can often be very limited, it gets old really quickly.

3 College Senior

Academics: Nice Facilities; Study Spaces and Course Choices Could Be Expanded – The classes offered are interesting and challenging, however they can be too small or not enough of the same class is offered and this is sometimes frustrating as it's not always possible to enroll in a course of greater interest to you. The study options are quite nice, however it would be nicer if there were more cafes or cafe study places on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Campus Police – Parties usually always get busted, but since these parties are usually the big ones, the police just end the party.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Although there are tons of international students here, they tend to merge as one separate group of their own. Other than this group, the population is not as diverse as the city.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Expensive, but great proximity to classes and main buildings. Bullock and Maywood were the worst buildings but are being renovated this year and so far look so much more updated and worth the money.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I think Clark is quite possibly the very best school of all time. If it is the right place for you, there is no way you won't have the time of your life. I love the liberal, accepting, and academically challenging environment. I also love spending my days doing school work on our beautiful green with my very best friends. It is hard to imagine my life without this school.

3 College Junior

Transportation: Parking Cost – The cost of parking is a little outrageous in my opinion. It cost more than $350 to park in the student garage. You also have to pay to have a spot in one of the outdoor lots, (and who wants to park outside in the middle or Worcester?)

4 College Junior

Diversity: Super Diverse – Clark has all sorts of diversity. We have people from many countries, with many different beliefs. Everyone is extremely accepting of this. We even have an International Gala every year to show case the many cultures our students encompass.

1 College Sophomore

Weather: Its usually cold all year around. Out of the whole school year you might not need your jacket for 2 months, maybe.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Be Careful – Safety at Clark is number 1 but we are not in the greatest neighborhood so remember that.

4 Niche User

Campus Food: Food is great – The review is completely off from what I see in the Caf. There's lots for us vegans, including our own vegan section with beans and whole grains. The food is made from scratch and is usually good. Also, the hours for the caf aren't even right on College Prowler. You're better off going to the caf's own website for information. clarkdining.com

3 College Student

Party Scene: Hang Out on Campus – there's enough to do hanging out with friends on campus.

College Freshman

Party Scene: House parties get busted before they start. The best parties are those organized by student clubs and those held in the local nightclub, Mint.

College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus isn't in the safest location, and there have been a number of muggings on and around campus at night.

College Freshman

Parking: I know most people don't bring their cars because apparently parking in the college garage is expensive.

College Freshman

Diversity: The University is known for its generous financial aid toward students. Most of the students here came because of the sizable aid they got, so I would say 80 percent of the student body is from more humble backgrounds. Ethnically, it is very diverse but not so much politically. I think almost everyone rooted for Barack Obama. There are a few openly homosexual people on campus, but our campus has a very open environment, so I'm sure we must be diverse sexually.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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.
