    This school is NOT worth $22,000 a year. I was more impressed with my local community college and learned a great deal more and I only paid $2,000.

    The school is expensive but the technology used for schooling is very advanced and the teachers are wonderful at helping students understand material. The overall appearance needs updating but I am there for education and that is worth my money.

    If you don't have a car, and even if you do, the Jule is a great option. It is a free transportation system for Clarke students that will take you to many different places around Dubuque.
