The academics at Clarke are unparalleled and the teachers are dedicated to helping you. Also, hallway mini golf is a fantastic study break that brings your whole floor together.

Psychology '15

I was searching for schools that were small and had an excellent physical therapy program. Once I arrived on campus, the friendly atmosphere made my decision even easier.

Graphic Design '17

I was seeking a college that allowed me to pursue a graphic design major AND play baseball. Pretty specific needs. I found that at Clarke. I love the branding and typographic side of graphic design. And baseball? No brainer. It’s all about the game for me.
