I liked how some of the professors I had were very understanding and accommodating to me as I was struggling to adjust to the new life of the college.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I do not like how the people here act. I do not talk to people because they want to start drama in some way or form. I do not like how I came to orientation and other events before moving in and was still unprepared for college. They did not tell me or any other student I have asked about this about absences being university excused.



I enjoyed that the college was smaller and that was able to be more of a community to me. I came from a small town so it felt like a home away from home. They also have a wide range of fun events to try to get students involved.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The weather can sometimes get really bad. I recommend a heavy winter coat, boats, and also a raincoat.

I like Clarion University a lot! The staff is very kind, and informative, and there are plenty of things to do on campus.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There isn’t much to do off-campus besides Cooks Forest and the Tressel. It gets a little boring in the winter when it's cold out.
