Clarkson University Reviews
Clarkson University is located in a super small town. It has an adorable small town feeling, you feel like you're in a different world. The weather is great if you love freezing temperatures and winter activities! There's lots to do on campus, and you can start a club for anything you want. The professors I have had are all beyond amazing, very intelligent and happy to help you with anything. I would highly recommened coming here.
Clarkson has excellent education, but housing and student life is lacking. The professors are absolutely amazing and extremely dedicated to your education (depending on your major). The advising leaves little to be desired and the pre-health majors don’t always get the most attention. If you are looking for research opportunities, there are many amazing chances.
I like Clarkson very much. The academics are difficult but according to past graduates they have very good job placement and the jobs are usually very well paying. Clarkson has Division 1 Hockey and all other sports are D3 but the hockey games are very fun to attend. It is in the small town of Potsdam, NY which doesn't have much more than a decent pizza shop, a Walmart, and a hardware store. But there are 3 other colleges within the area that can help students meet lots of people.
