    Clarion University offers a good education at a economical value. For example, the Business Administration School is AACSB accredited. This accreditation is rigorous, and many top notch schools do not have this accreditation.

    Autumn Leaf Festival is a big thing at clarion. its full of vendors and craft things, and it is when most of the fun happens. there are more things at clarion that students have to find out on their own or stumble upon themselves.
