Reasons to attend and to not attend Clark University

To Attend

  • “If you want to be in a diverse environment in terms of interacting with different cultures, Clark will offer you that.” [About 13% of students are international.]
  • “The merit aid can be very generous.” [85% of Clark students receive either merit-based or need-based financial aid.]
  • “It’s a small school so all the classes are really small. Most are 16 or 17 students except for the big introductory classes. It gives you the chance to interact with your professors, which is important if you’re going to graduate school because you need good letters of recommendation.” [The average class size is 21 students.]
  • “There are lots of opportunities to do research or get a good internship.” [67% of undergraduates participate in research.]
  • “There is a thriving creative scene. There are constantly dance festivals and art exhibits.”
  • “People will genuinely embrace your weird interests. You will find someone interested in a book or speech that you had no idea another person could love so deeply.”

To Not Attend

  • “The city is very boring. There isn’t much to do.”
  • “Don’t come if you want a big school.”
  • “The campus is kind of ugly.”
  • “If you don’t like the winter. People will still be social when there are 12 inches of snow.”
  • “If you’re looking for the stereotypical college experience with football games, fraternities, and a big campus, this is not that.”
  • “If you want to be able to go off campus a lot and be going to different places all the time. You can do that in Worcester, but it’s not the Clark culture. People are more on campus.”
