degree and major -- MSLS in library science
This is an excellent university to earn a library science degree. They also offer an undergraduate degree in library science. You may take the degree online. The class from which I have benefited most is Database Searching. In addition to learning about the various databases I had to write a bibliographic essay which I had published in the university's library science peer reviewed journal. This gave me a start in academic publishing.
This degree is very helpful as a research degree with courses such as humanities sources, social science sources and sources for the business world.

There are so many activities, clubs, and events on campus. There is honestly something for everyone! The professors wish to see you succeed, and they will help in anyway that they can, if you just ask. The one thing that I would like to see change on campus is the food. I would like to see healthier food options, and more food accommodations for those with allergies or medical needs.
I really enjoyed my first year as a college student at Clarion University. I came here for Speech Pathology and I loved the program! Unfortunately, at the end of my first semester I came to realize that the program wasn't for me and decided to switch majors and transfer to a different school next fall. Clarion helped me in every way to find what was best for me.

The professors here are very understanding with missing class for sickness, or family emergencies, etc. They are also very open to help you with any questions that you may have. I would recommend this college.
