I am a high school Running Start student and Clark is amazing! It gives me a sense of freedom and encourages creativity and individuality. I am in my second year and I have met so many people with so many different backgrounds, ages, cultures, and beliefs, but we are all able to put aside our differences so that we may alliterate a good learning environment, and build a large community. I might be in one class with a person and as I walk by them we will always range from a high five to a conversation asking each other how our quarter is going. The campus is awesome and right next to downtown, the library, and countless coffee shops. nearly all of the teachers have office hours where they want students to come and ask questions, one of my teachers even met up with a person and sat in their car with them so that she could let the student pass. The professors, students, and staff all want to see you succeed and are all genuinely interested in getting to know you. Amazing community. Amazing campus. Amazing authenticity.
