Most Helpful Review for Clarkson University
  • Category: Am learning a lot
  • Review by: Dylan from Fort Edward, NY
  • 11 out of 14 people found this review helpful

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 has great academics and professors who are willing to go out of their way to help you understand and excel. They have countless free programs like tutoring, academic assistance, entertainment shows each weekend, etc. The weather and the buildings aren't the nicest but the academic programs and research opportunities make the college well worth it.

    Clarkson University is a very challenging college where you will have to think outside the box. Although the education is tough it is comparable to common big engineering schools. The hard work will pay off because many popular employers look to hire students for internships, co-ops, and full time employment.

    Clarkson is an extremely challenging university that will test you persistence, ability to think, and your willingness to work with others. The university often is difficult for small town kids but will shape you into a better student and person. The university overall is based solely on achieving a degree with little emphasis on the actual college experience you might be looking for elsewhere.

    Clarkson is a great place for students who wish to study in a small school / small town setting. The education you get here is what you want it to be, Clarkson has all of the tools you need to succeed. The faculty and staff want to help all of the students succeed.

    Excellent connections to future places of employment. Helps develop strong work ethics because of expected work load. As sustainable as a college in the north country can be without freezing to death.

    It has an awesome atmosphere and I would encourage anyone who is looking to get a science degree to go here. I love the small campus and family feel to this University. Was my top pick out of eleven schools for sure!

    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.
