Family Fun Days

Clarke students quickly learn that campus is a close-knit community, just like a family. Sometimes it’s hard to explain, and that’s why we have Family Fun Days! We invite families to return to campus in the fall to experience the Clarke and Dubuque community. Get to know your student’s home away from home, and enjoy a taste of campus life and the Dubuque community during this annual fall tradition.
