What Students Are Saying

3.95 Average Rating
This University is very concerned about the well-being of their students. My experience there as a freshman was wonderful. The campus is very welcoming as well.
Cassie from Russell, NY
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.
