What Students Are Saying

3.74 Average Rating
Expect a good bit of rain and snow.

Don't be afraid to get out and look for different activities. Many exist, but they won't always just appear out of thin air for you; you need to look for them.
Alex from Sandy Lake, PA
-Having a car on campus is a lot easier than taking the bus!
-Get flex points with your meal plans. They really come in handy and the food at the Gemmell Student Complex [where you can use flex points to pay] is a lot better than it is as Eagle Commons.
-Get snow boots early, because it can snow as early as October.
-Rent your books instead of buying them from the bookstore. Most of your textbooks you won't want to keep and you don't even get half of their original price when you try and sell them back.
Kaitlyn from Pleasanton, CA
Keep yourself in a good mood and surround yourself with things that you enjoy. There are so many options of things to participate in, so many people to become friends with, and so much down time to study and keep your grades up. Also, check the weather before you go home for the weekend, you never know what you'll come back to; there was a snow storm in October and it is currently over 70 degrees in mid-March.
Blayze from Saltsburg, PA
The best tips I could give for perspective students are:
-Be prepared to walk a lot. Clarion is built on a hill and most of your day will be spent climbing it.
-Make sure your willing to be creative and able to find alternative things to do. Although there is a decent cinema and a couple other places nearby, if you don't have a car there isn't much to do(especially in the winter.)
-Clarion gets COLD in the winter so come back from Thanksgiving break with winter coats, boots, gloves, hats, scarves, and anything else to keep warm.
Jackie from Coolspring, PA
Make sure you check all of your possible options first then if you feel comfortable then make the best of what you have.
Dominic from Hermitage, PA
If you're considering this school: it's not as big as Penn State or Pitt, but it's no less involved or important.
Michaela from Cherry Tree, PA
Apply early and get everything done and your ducks in a row before the end of your senior year. Clarion is a good decision!
Heather from Oil City, PA
Be open minded. Half of the things I joined and became active in I would have never dreamed of in high school. Join something! Becoming active on campus was the best possible choice I could have made. It opened so many opportunities and I met a lot of really interesting people.
Lea from New Castle, PA
Get to know everyone in your major department. Start strong and finish strong academically. Be consistent in your academic performance and visit your professors' office hours to ask questions and explain any concerns.
Prince from Pittsburgh, PA
