Clarion University of Pennsylvania is a small campus, which makes it easy to get around to all of your classes in a timely manner. All the faculty seem very kind, approachable, and willing to help with whatever you need. All of there facilities are very clean and easy to find and navigate.
While it is a small school and community, the school sets you up to succeed. In order to succeed you need to take advantage of the resources provided to you. The extracurricular and academics are average. The food is decent for a college campus. I would recommend if you are looking for a small school close to home.
Overall, I feel very safe and secure on campus. The professors I have had so far want to help us students become successful and succeed in the classes. The campus is set up and managed well. There are plenty of opportunities for students to become involved with activities around campus.
It is amazing. The small atmosphere and the teacher to students ratio is great. It give you the ability to talk privately with your professors and discuss any troubles. The academic advisors are extraordinary and so helpful. I highly recommend applying to Clarion!

If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior about what I know about college life and making the transition I would give myself so much useful advice. First I would tell myself to start applying for scholarships as soon as possible because there are so many out there for college freshmen. I would also tell myself to be open to new people and start the year off right by finding a group of friends that surround you with positive experiences and encouraging words. Getting involved is another important thing to remember. Having a resume with many different experiences as well as memberships to organizations shows employers that you are very involved. Overall I would tell myself to give everyone a chance and just enjoy the college life by interacting with people you know will only push you in a positive direction.
I condisder the worst thing about clarion to be working with the campus. i feel that the campus authorities such as administration, financial aid, and o tehrs are sometimes hard to get ahold of and dont recieve the proper help you need.
Clarion University is a small friendly place that needs to have more avaliable options of things to do on the weekends, but that is well rounded and accepting to everyone.
I wish i had known to goto class more in my first semester, i would not have done as much damage to my GPA, to which i am suffering for now.
Any person should attend this school. Clarion University is b oth friendly and diverse when it comes to the students and faculty that are here. most all persons are socialbe and it is very easy to feel at home in an environment like clarion.
The only person that wouldn't be happy at this school is somebody looking for a very large or non state affiliated school. Also to be happy here you need to be accepting of the cold and snowy winters!
I tell them about how hands-on the program I'm in is. I mention that the professors in my major have had practical experience outside of teaching that they can pass on to students. Also, we have excellent equipment in the communications department--and other departments like the science department for that matter. I like to tell my friends of our extensive library. I like to mention the community that students can find if they seek it.
I don't know most of my classmates, because I haven't been assigned any group work to date. As I get closer to student teaching, I will spend more time with the same group of people and get to know them.
From what I am told and from what I have read, Clarion University is known for Education. Clarion has turned out many teachers and continues to do so. The history of this college is strong in education and continues to this day. When I decided to pursue a career in education, this college was suggested to me as one of the best. Even though I was accepted to others, which were also closer to home, I choose this school due to the great references on education.
The best about my school is the atmoshpere. It is very welcoming and friendly. Whenever I am having an off day I can usually look around and take in the view of the mountains and people walking around with a care free attitude and it helps me feel more at ease. Even during finals week when there seems to be a more tense and studious atmoshpere I still feel incorporated and bonded with the rest of the students because we are all going through the same emotions involved with taking final exams.
I feel that my school is a smaller university and caters to a more personal and close experience with professors. If you're looking for a place where you're noticed and awknowledged as an individual, Clarion is for you. Everybody knows or has seen almost everyone and it's a tight knit family community. It's easy to make friends. There's not a lot to do surrounding campus, but always events and activities from school organizations on campus. Other larger schools don't offer a community environment like Clarion.
I believe the most frustrating thing about my school is the current construstion happening throughout the campus. Yes, its benefiting the school by expanding though trying to learn with construction noises outside the classroom is difficult and annoying to the students and proffessors.
