5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I would choose this school again because all of the people are great and the community is very strong. The people are supportive and admissions is flexible with circumstances.

Campus Food: Not terrible. Wish there was more choice

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: It is expensive for rent, but the campus is great

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Most of the restaurants off-campus are locally owned and there are only a few chain restaurants in Potsdam. A reasonable number of restaurants accept Knight card, which is a Clarkson form of money put on student id cards.

4 College Junior

Administration: If you have one failing semester (fail 3 courses?), they put you on academic probation (I think). If you fail the next semester, then you get kicked out from what I've heard. It might be different across majors. For the most part, they are fairly lenient in terms of drinking violations. You have to be doing something pretty bad or get caught multiple times to give them a reason to kick you out.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: I mean financial aid is generally need-based from what I have experienced and heard from friends. In some cases (like mine), if you are doing well academically, Clarkson will offer you scholarships that are usually funded by alumni throughout your undergraduate there.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Frat houses are really only good for the first semester and maybe second semester Freshman year. After that, if you don't join one, its pretty hard to get in and they get old fast anyways. If you have an apartment in Woodstock or Townhouses (during Junior and Senior years) its fairly easy to throw a party because no one gives a crap.

2 College Junior

Campus Food: The quality of the food from The Servery and Ro-Bro is just terrible. Nearly every time I got a meal from there during my freshman and sophomore years (before I started living in Woodstock), I was unsatisfied with it. The cooks are generally terrible because they are mostly students and Aramark (the food service) is disgusting. Most of the time I ate at Subway because I knew what I was getting, but Smokehouse and Mainstream Grill also offer good variety.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: In the last five years or so, Clarkson has put a considerable amount of money into improving on-campus housing. Not only have they upgraded several apartment and dorm buildings with new furniture or renovations, they have also built entirely new dorm houses and apartments. The best option by far is the Woodstock apartment complex.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: There are so many fraternities I can't even name them all and there are 4 sororities that are all good people. If you want to join a house, there is probably a house for you.

Athletics: The gym is great and convenient and had many options when it comes to working out and the hockey rink had free skate most days of the week, its just at weird hours.

Off-Campus Dining: The food is great and authentic. There is only one chain restaurant and that's McDonald's. Everything is locally owned and most places will even deliver to your dorm building.

Administration: The administration is great and they aren't going to kick you out unless you do something extremely stupid or if fail. You can make your own deciosons and mistakes here but they do make you face the consequences of your actions.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The great thing about is private school is that the scholarships are generous to say the least. They will match pretty much any price that you get from a state school and are great when it comes to helping you find alternate sources of aid when your scholarships aren't enough.

Party Scene: The parties are okay and some can be really fun. The beer is cheap, as can be expected, but the people are great and you can have a good time if you want to. It's really you who dictates the experience

Campus Food: The food is good but much of it is fried. While it does taste good there aren't a ton of options so you find yourself eating to same food over and over again.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The room sizes really depend on where you live but everything is really close to the academic buildings and once you are in an academic building you never have to go outside, which is a plus in the cold weather here. The best thing about Clarkson is that once you pay your tuition and room + board, you never really have to pay for anything other than books once your here. All of the services provided on campus are provided for free.
