3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It was not my dream school or even e=similar to where i thought i would end up. This being said it is significantly better than i first thought it would be and i attribute that to the students and staff at the university

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love Clark so far! It was definitely the right school for me. I love the diversity and the passion of Clarkies! The Clark community is amazing, and I am very happy I chose it!

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The cons definitely outweigh any pros. The location is bad, the buildings aren't very nice, the food isn't very good, the place is a general disappointment.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The food's bad, the administration is very disorganized (I've seen multiple typos in official documents as well as dead links on their website.) A lot of people are stoners here, and everyone else just isn't fun to hang out with. The roommate survey they send you is completely worthless, because I, along with many others, was paired with a completely incompatible roommate. (We put completely different answers on our surveys.)

Overall Experience: My experience at school so far has been amazing. I enjoy how passionate everyone is about what they're doing on campus and the intellectual conversations had.

Overall Experience: Clark has changed me for the better. I am more conscious of the world around me and want to make a difference. The community of "Clarkies" is unlike any other. Clark changes to fit you and not the other way around. I have never seen a more accepting place.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: My experience at Clark University was definitely one that was needed when I was fresh out of high school; I explored a new area of the country, became close with people I never would have had the opportunity to meet had I not left Oregon, and was given amazing career opportunities. However, I wish I had visited the school prior to my attendance, and had applied to more schools around the country instead of settling for the first school that looked good on paper.

Overall Experience: Every single person I met so far is incredibly kind and welcoming to the school, including all of my professors. I already love being here, and would chose Clark again in a heartbeat.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: everyone is nice and approachable. Professors are there to help and guide you with the things you need. I have two critiques which are there needs to be better food in the dining hall, and that friend groups in the university is very cliquey.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I don't know much about off campus housing. But, they are pretty decent and close to campus.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: The night life is a hit or miss as well. Sometimes the clubs are popping and other times they are whack. I actually prefer house parties. They are a little more laid back and you can do a variety of things.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Despite my above ratings, I am satisfied with off-campus food. While there is a number of fast food restaurants (Dominos, Wendy's, McDonalds, Burger King, Uncle Sam's Pizza, KFC, Taco Bell, Subway, Chinese food, etc) there are a good number of mainstream restaurants (AppleBees for example) and there are a number of ethnic restaurants (Jamaican, Dominican, African, etc.)

Administration: Administration is very strict when it comes to drinking and drugs. You are likely to be written up by RAs,

3 College Junior

Campus Food: It's either a hit or a miss to be quite honest. They make an effort to provide a variety of foods but sometimes you have to bail and see what the beautiful city of Worcester has to offer.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: While my financial aid package itself was decent, it is such a hassle! They say they are willing to work with you but it's like pulling teeth to get them to give you a break! My advice would be to stay in constant communication with them. You have to stay on them because they'll screw you over if you let them.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Clark is a very quirky school. That's one of the things I love most about it. You won't find the same two people here. At Clark, I've met and bonded with people I never thought I would be close to. It's such a refreshing place to be.

5 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: There are so many great places to eat in Worcester!

5 College Student

Administration: Students are very serious about school, but they also know how to have fun and be safe when the time comes for that.

4 College Student

Campus Food: They do the best considering how busy it can get at times.

3 College Student

Scholarships: I wish there was more of an explanation as to why one did or did not receive a merit-based scholarship.

5 College Student

Campus Housing: The rooms are spacious and for the most part don't have that "prison cell feel".

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.

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.
