Clarkson University Reviews
Review Clarkson University
I studied mechanical engineering at Clarkson University, where with the help my my peers and professors I excelled at learning the curriculum. I loved my time at Clarkson, but balancing a social life and school work was a challenge. Overall I really enjoyed my time there and I am contemplating going back for a masters!
The town here in incredibly boring. There's nothing to do unless you're an outdoors kind of person. It's quiet and there are parties practically every weekend. The campus food is greasy. However, dorms are really spacious and generally really nice. It gets windy up here so don't come if you don't think you can take the cold. Some professors have an extremely thick accent that make it difficult to understand. The people here are really friendly and administration is relatively helpful. However, if you're looking for a cheap school, they give a lot of financial aid out. Hockey team is pretty good. It's also extremely safe. There's literally no one here... at all..
Clarkson University is a great academic college riddled with minor problems some may see past more easily than others. The main academic building is hideous and poorly designed, with broken chairs and cold temperatures inside. However, nearly each professor I have encountered is very pleasant and willing to help if the student makes an effort to receive it.
