This college is very demanding when it comes to some subjects and very laid back when it comes to others. The big 3 courses, physics, chemistry, and calculus, serve as a filter for the students. If you can't keep up and learn the material, you might want to consider a different school. The classes can also be somewhat labor intensive at times.

Clarkson University is not a bad place to be; sure it is not the best, but also is it not the worst. The quality of the education presented there I must say, is satisfactory and could pass for reasonable, but me being honest, the school doesn't have a great social life attached to it. If you have your mind set on a good school in engineering or other possible majors offered there, and not a flexible list of social activities one can participate in, then Clarkson university is the best place for you, but if you are the kind of person that wants the whole package, that is, having fun, going to places, and exploring life while handling school work, then you better be looking into more places urgently; I'm not saying that Clarkson university is a horrible place to be, but all I'm saying is that you should get ready to be bored from time to time.» Read More
Clarkson University has an amazingly welcoming environment; Although it is in a small town the green nature and short walks to and from classes creates a very friendly aura around most of the students and staff. Being able to get from the furthest of classrooms to the others in 5-6 minutes at most lets you not have to be as worried about running to class and gives you opportunities to be more relaxed and socialize. Also a big pro to this University is the vast amount of clubs and activities to be involved in whether its sports or videos games or even dancing there is something for you.» Read More
The engineering program is rigorous and the professors expect a lot out of their students outside of the lecture hall. The campus itself is small, but large enough to accommodate adequate amenities, such as a library, student center, gym, hockey rink, housing, and parking. Most of the students that attend Clarkson are male, but in recent years, more and more females have been attracted to this college - myself included.» Read More
