5 College Junior

Academics: Academically, one of the best ranked colleges in the nation. It's what you make of it though. If you utilize all the resources Clarkson provides, you'll succeed with flying colors. They have walk in tutoring a majority of the week for 4 hours, as well as small group tutoring, and individual tutoring. They also always have office hours for every professor and TA office hours when they can help you. The workload is a lot if you're an engineer, but you learn to handle your time the longer you're there and still can make time for a social life.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Rigorous program combined with caring and engaging professors, and lots of exciting opportunities.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Academics at Clarkson are top notch. As a business major, sometimes the engineers will say that your program isn't hard enough, but it is. The business programs are very aggressive and the professors take their jobs seriously. Most of them have experience in their field and have come back to teach. The workload isn't too bad, and Clarkson stresses the importance of group work, so there will be projects that can be completed as a group.
