I have been attending Clark College since 2018, I completed two years of prerequisite courses and was ecstatic when I received my acceptance into their prestigious nursing program. I have had a wonderful experience throughout my time spent with Clark College; from the professors to the advisors and all the classmates I have had the pleasure of meeting in-between, Clark College has a lot to offer and is a great choice when it comes to pursuing your academic career. As a community college, Clark aims to keep classes affordable. I have had a positive experience when reaching out to professors for assistance in scholarship application processes or receiving letters of recommendation for scholarships which require them. Finances can be a barrier when considering a college education, so help from the staff and advisors goes a long way in a student’s experience.

Beautiful campus to walk around on. The teachers can be openly political sometimes. All teachers I've had are very clear on grading criteria and assignment due dates. There are a ton of free resources and events happening constantly when it's not during a pandemic. The staff are exceptionally friendly. However, their website, clark.edu, can be pretty confusing to navigate sometimes. Also, the ctclink gateway site is a huge pain to use. But they do have people who will help you use those sites.

Diego - 12/20/2020

From what I remember, when we still took classes on campus. It was a mostly mixed experience. Cons: -The social aspect is honestly pretty nonexistent, so don't expect to make many friends here. Even the existence of clubs doesn't do enough to grab students and get them to socialize. -Teachers can be a mixed bag. It varies by department. If you're taking computer science like myself, you get to learn from one of the best, friendliest, and most entertaining teachers, which makes the Clark College a whole lot more engaging. Then you have the physics department where it's ran by teachers with poor teaching ability, questionable teaching philosophies, and unrealistically high expectations for students, even at a college level. -Some teachers are really hard to reach and have office hours at the most inconvenient times. Worst case scenario, they might never actually respond. -Financial aid. Pros: -Nick Macias. -The shop and cafeteria are great. Items can be expensive, but it's still a convenient place to drop by and grab a snack, considering it's located at the center of the campus. -The campus offers a gym among other recreational services, but the subscription is pricey. -Occasional fun events. -Endless places to study. You'll find at least one suitable study room in every building on campus. -The campus itself is beautiful.

Megan - 09/16/2020

Clark College is a great school for high school graduates, or for others who might have decided to take time off after high school. The staff are very happy to help with any problems you might be having with your academics. There are tons of technological help that the school offers; for example they offer loaner laptops for students.

Clark College FAQS

  1. What is the Acceptance Rate at Clark College?

    The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Clark College is 100%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    I would tell my high school self that grades are important but not as important as learning the concepts at hand. Getting the full understanding of the material and nurturing the spirit of intellectual curiosity is what makes for a rich and full experience, not a letter in a grade book. From a tactical prospective, I would tell my senior self how critical it is to develop strong time management and organizational skills to combat the ever present, teenage staple of procrastination. While I always seemed to pull it out, turn in the paper, get a good grade on the test I crammed for, I have learned that waiting until the last minute might appear to work in the short term, but it?s only cheating myself and causing undue stress. I would tell myself to be prepared as I transition from the comfort of my parent?s household out into the real world because there is so much to learn about being an independent and responsible adult. Finally, have fun, live your life fully, and appreciate your parents in the last year of high school.

  4. What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

    The worst thing about Clark College is the parking. City buses are provided however, the majority of the students drive. When the school was first built it was not designed to accommodate such a large population. Now, over the years as the population increased, the parking situation gets worst. A number of people I know have to come at least an hour before their class begins to look for a parking spot. Those who find a spot on campus are the lucky ones too. There are some like me, who park at the local community center and walk to campus.

  10. What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

    I find nothing frustrating about my school at all. I feel like my school is pretty easy going just the way I like it. If I think about it I think I can find a few things such as school being too close to home or having running start students (students who are in high school but may attending the college due to a placement test). That brings me to the placement test which tells you where you are placed and in what class. Sometimes taking the test could be a fluke!
