I like that Clarkson College is a small private school. The professors know you by name and are very helpful! I’ve made great relationships with my professors enough that they said I can use them as a reference.

Friendly staff that seem to genuinely care about you. It is a tough school, but it is worth the hard work and effort. Plus there are many opportunities for extra help through free tutoring and student led supplemental instruction.
Everyone has been so helpful! They have answered all my questions or pointed in me in the right direction. I cant wait to start my journey with Clarkson college.
