What I like most about Clark State is that the classes are small. When you need extra help you can get one on one time with your professor. The professors do very well teaching.
Tips for prospective students
My only tip is don't call your advisor because it's hard to get ahold of them. Instead stop by their office and make appointment.
Food and Dining
At the cafe you can get subs, soup, cookiers, chips, and so much more. The food is really good.

Clark State is truly a college that has your best interest in mind. They make sure they are advising you to take the right classes in order to graduate on time, they have many different majors, and they try to make a schedule that best fits your needs. Clark State has truly been a life changer for me.
Tips for prospective students
Try to pick a major and stick with it. Yet, even if you do decide to change, your general education classes here will transfer to many different colleges. Try going to Clark State Community College first and then transfer to a university to keep costs down.
Academic Rigor
Clark State is great academically. They have smaller class sizes so you really get the one-on-one time with your teacher that you need. We also have tutoring services and disability services for students needing an extra boost.
Food and Dining
They have a cafeteria and cafe at the main campus in Springfield, but they are only open a limited number of hours. They don't have any cafes at their other campuses.
What to do for fun
You could be apart of various clubs, like Phi Theta Kappa, the Interfaith minstries, the Gay/Straight Alliance, the Creative Writing Club, Chess Club, and many others!
Bang for the buck
Clark State is 85.50 per quarter credit hour. It is really great since our classes will transfer to other universities. You're paying 3 times less for your classes versus a traditional university.
Great for these types of students
Great for adult students, since they have flexible class schedules. It's great for beginning students, so they can get their general education classes out of the way in a intimate environment. It's great for PSEO students. It's great for everyone who's looking to get the extra edge they need!

Am learning a lot
The teachers here really care about how much students learn. One class that I had trouble with was Chemistry. The teacher not only met with me after school, but also video tutored me on a school funded program and set up a group study day for the entire class. The courses are not as challenging as a four year institution, but each student will learn almost as much as if they had gone to a four year college.
Am enjoying being here
Clark State is a community college that hosts mostly working students. This means that some are parents and older than the “ideal” college student. This also means that Clark State is not really a party school, nor does it include dorms just yet. Fortunately the school and professors take into account the time that most students will be spending at work, so homework is usually manageable. About once a month an activity, such as alcohol awareness or a carnival is held to encourage school spirit. It's really easy to make friends here and the college staff are extremely helpful and friendly.
Bang for the buck
Several of the professors here work very hard to make sure that credits from Clark State will transfer to most major Ohio universities. So instead of paying for a years worth of credits at a four year semester institution for general classes, a student can pay one third of the cost and earn twice as many credits on this schools quarter pace.
Tips for prospective students
Come in and take a tour, it makes getting around much easier. Also notice that there is more than one building in more than one area. That will save a lot of time and gas. Talk to the bookstore workers and cashier's office because they will gladly explain how to avoid extra fees. Feel free to look online at the many online, night, and self paced courses Clark State has. This school is all about flexibility.
Great for these types of students
Any that don't mind living somewhere other than a dorm. For the driven student, an associates degree can be earned by the end of the summer, and for the more relaxed student holding a job and going to school will not be difficult. I especially recommend this school for single parents.

Excellent Student Services for all students. A great diversity of degree programs with superior crossover relationships with a multitude of colleges. A large number of national and local internship opportunities.
Tips for prospective students
Apply as early as you can. Take the compass placement test, and schedule an appointment with an adviser. Attend Orientation wide awake they provide excellent information, and can help with scheduling. They have free tutoring. If ou need help ask for it. They want to help you succeed.
Academic Rigor
This school offers excellent course work that will prepare you well for your upcoming career. Instructors are friendly, and helpful, but hold you to standards, and will help you meet those standards.
Food and Dining
There are a huge number of restaurants nearby from BK and McD's all the way up. No on campus dining at the Greene county campus, but plenty within walking distance as well as less than a 5 min drive.
What to do for fun
All campus locations have regularly scheduled events as well as many special events at the different campuses. They are less than a 1/4 of a mile from the Fairfield mall, and less than 10 minutes from the Nutter Center which is an excellent venue for all sorts of events from sports to monster trucks to concerts.
Bang for the buck
If your just looking for certification, a 2 year degree, or plan to go on to a 4 year college. The variety of learning opportunities at Clark State will give you much more than the cost would ever lead you to expect. A truky great learning experience without having to mortgage your next 20 years of earnings.
Great for these types of students
Any and all. Clark State welcomes students of any type.
Clubs and Activities
There are too many to speak of. The most recent is a Kenny Rogers concert scheduled for Dec. 14th. This is only the second in a series of scheduled concerts by various artists.
Campus Safety
There are both hired security as well as criminal justice students working as school security, and campus security. I have heard of no incident on any campus in the year I have been there.
