What Students Are Saying

4.05 Average Rating
When visiting for the first time, I didn't get that 'oh my god I NEED to go here. It wasn't until I had settled into my routine that this place began to feel like home. If you're having doubts because of the small size, or a lack of awe, don't worry because once your here you will be reassured that you made the best choice. Clark is a great fit for anyone because you make Clark fit to your needs.
Katie from NH
Be sure the look what the required classes are and sign up early.
from Somerville, MA
I think your essay really makes a difference at Clark. If you are someone who has average grades but really wants to go to Clark, show them your passion and ability to inspire others. It seems like it's the little things you do, to show how interested you are in the school, make the most difference.
Olivia from West Hartford, CT
Go on a TREK if you can, they are an amazing way to meet other new students, and they are tons of fun! It's a great way to get settled into college and go on a lifechanging adventure at the same time!
Amy from Cambridge, NY
If you are unsure about what college to choose, email the professors in your interested subject! They can talk about the classes they teach and research they are doing, giving you an inside perspective on your potential major. Also, reach out online to current and past students. A great way to do this is by joining facebook groups; tons of students ask and answer questions that you might have about certain schools.
Savannah from Northern California
Be prepared to enter a place that is liberal, very diverse and in the middle of a busy city.
Emma from Worcester, MA
During the Student Activities Fair, get information for any club you might be vaguely interested in. You will be surprised what you will end up caring about the most, and attending meetings early on can help you find a great place to thrive.
Clark's Biggest Fan
Visit the Leap Center for services such as: career services, writing assistance, academic advising, and other valuable services.
Jennie from Worcester, MA
Talk to current Clark students! They'll tell you a lot about the school and the social environment. Clark students love to let you know about the school and will let you know if they think you are a good fit.
