Most popular groups? - Ski club is huge. Theres something like 80 other clubs which all offer a slew of benefits and opportunities.
my involvement? - I was the treasurer of my fraternity, Tau Epsilon Phi. I also founded the Clarkson bowling Team - we travel to different tournaments and compete. As well I was the president of the bowling club.
Doors open? - Freshmen year, definitely, it's was a must and most did. later years, for me atleast, doors started to be closed more than open.
Athletic events? - Hockey is very hyped and the big event on campus. guest speakers don't really get huge publicity, but still get fair amount of student viewers and no real such thing as theater at Clarkson.
Dating Scene? - Pretty tough but it's there. My friend and I had to reach out to the neighboring school of Suny Potsdam,
meet my closest friends? - freshman year, walking around trying to meet new people as well as getting to know my brothers in my fraternity.
awake at 2am? - all-nighter for the exam tomorrow morning

Party? - I'd say anywhere from once to three times a week (thursday = weekend for some students.)
fraternities/sororities? - I believe strongly that the reason i'm enjoying my time at Clarkson is in part due to my fraternity. I also strongly believe you have to pick the right one for who you are. Sorority's are more prevalent in Suny Potsdam, where Clarkson students can infact pledge if interested.
Last weekend? - drove to mohawk valley to compete in a bowling tournament.
Saturday night non-drinking? - Video games. Also, there are tons of activities hosted by the school that are sober events.
off campus? - I live off campus so that's what I do off campus, besides that you can go to the close mountains and ski or snowboard, or hike in the Adirondaks. It's a beautiful area if you get out into it.
