What Students Are Saying

4.05 Average Rating
Clark is a diverse, dynamic community where everyone is involved in a variety of interesting activities, both academically and extra curricular. Although Clark is in a not-so-nice part of Worcester, it provides students with cheap living and great community service, volunteering and internship opportunities. Clark University offers the small liberal arts feel while providing research opportunities and has a heterogeneous population; something that's hard to come by in a small New England liberal arts school.
