3 College Freshman

Athletics: Not many teams, miss having a football team but there are good soccer games!

3 College Senior

Local Area: Worcester is better than it used to be. It is not like Boston/NY. Nice thing is you can take a train/bus to either city. There is always something to do, decent bars, good cafes, not a lot as far as clubs go. Lots of places to go to dinner, there is a very nice art museum.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: It is decent. From my understanding, it is cheaper than living on campus.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: I have lived in the Worcester area most of my life. There is a wide variety of restaurants throughout the city. The price range is average to expensive. If you are vegetarian/vegan, I recommend Belmont Vegetarian and Loving Hut. Both are small and affordable. There is also a decent amount of Gluten free options. I recommend The Boynton on Highland St (excellent GF pizza).

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: There are a couple of really good teams, and the student body supports them, but its not a big part of campus life unless you are on a team.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: There is a lot of opportunities and things out there, you just have to be proactive in finding it.

Health & Safety: We don't have many issues on campus or involving the students but every now and then there is a case that maybe could have been handled better.

Administration: Administration is understanding, but will still enforce rules that matter and affect others, especially if safety is involved.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: If the added independence is what you are looking for then there will definetely be housing that suits you.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are some good off-campus restaurants near Clark.

Academics: The academics are what you make of them. The professors across all departments are pretty great and the curriculum is thought provoking. Nothing is too easy- and most classes (excepting math and sciences) are designed so that you have the opportunity to push yourself hard as you want. In lower level perspective classes you can usually coast through if you are lazy and reasonably intelligent, but if you are in the upper-level seminars with only twelve students you will have nowhere to hide if you were a lazy idiot who didn't do the assigned reading.

Academics: Biologists have more work than a lot of the non-science majors, but there are also rewards that come with the major, like the opportunity to gain legitimate future-job-related experience in a laboratory and our classes are held in one of the most beautiful buildings on campus.

Overall Experience: Clark is amazing, you encounter lots of people with diverse experiences, friendly and creative students, thought-provoking professors, and it's all set in the backdrop of urban-decay-beautiful and strange Main South Worcester. I regret nothing.

Greek Life: We don't have Greek life on campus. The closest thing we have are upperclassmen of the Division III sports teams typically live in houses together as a team and those houses occasionally have house parties with kegs. But there are plenty of off-campus parties thrown by people not involved in sports teams as well.

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.
