Clarke University Reviews
Review Clarke University
I really loved the location of the college. it is located in Dubuque near the bluffs and a river, and is also about 5 minutes away from downtown. The campus itself is very old, but is newly renovated which gives it that antique feel. It used to be an all women college, but has recently been opened up to men. The architecture of the buildings is spectacular, and even more impressive, the school has underground tunnels! I'm going for nursing, and the program guarantees you're out in four years with a degree which is extremely satisfying. There are also a lot of hospitals near the campus which makes it super easy to complete my clinicals. The only problem I have with the overall atmosphere is that it is still a blossoming campus, so it is quite small. I'm from a small town so I'm familiar with the small-town feel, but it would be nice to be apart of a campus with more students at some point in the future.
Athletes make up a good portion of the student body here at Clarke University. We are all very supportive of one another and try to attend each others games as often as we can. I feel that in the next few years with football becoming a new addition to Clarke University we will be seeing some exciting changes in the facilities Clarke has to offer. We have facilities both on campus and of that our sports teams utilize. Overall, being an athlete at Clarke University, you have support from all over including fellow students, local residence and the faculty of Clarke! Its great to be able to represent Clarke, coming from a Clarke athlete themselves! GO CRUSADERS!
Living on campus is easy and great, especially for freshman year! On top of having to get use to a whole new school moving out of your home can be a scary but exciting step in ones life. My experience with the dorms has been great for the most part. Sometimes it gets a bit too hot for comfort but cracking a window and getting a fan or two usually does the trick! I lived in Mary Ben which is the girls dorm and everyone was very friendly and welcoming. Move in day is a breeze with all the help you get. Clarke staff and students are ready when you arrive to help you get all unpacked and settled in! I would really recommend dorm life.
