Unfortunately, I couldn’t afford to travel back to Worcester for the ceremony. However, I am watching the ceremony live-streamed all the way from Baltimore! I am so proud to have called Clark University my home for the past five years, and I am so very grateful for the lifelong friends and memories I made there. Congrats class of 2013!
Check out the turtle boy statue, Worcester’s claim to fame. Every time I see this I laugh to myself. Beautiful and totally relevant to this blog. You are welcome.
A liberal arts institution in Worcester, Massachusetts, Clark University features both undergraduate and graduate programs. The small university, true to its motto of “Challenge Convention. Change Our World,” emphasizes the importance of research and critical thinking. With only 2,200 undergraduate students and 1,000 graduate students, Clark boasts an average class size of 21 and a student-to-faculty ratio of 10 to one. Students work closely with faculty members and often receive personalized attention and instruction.
Faculty members further encourage students to engage in the world around them on both local and global levels. In this vein, Clark University has developed an innovative education model called LEEP (Liberal Education & Effective Practice). This unique program integrates world and workplace achievements into the traditional liberal arts experience.

Danielle and I are officially Choices educators!! we’ll be in the Choices office Mondays 9-11PM and if anybody ever has any questions about safe sex/sexual health/STI’s/resources in Worcester/sexuality and other cool stuff like that or you just wanna buy some cheap condoms or sex toys, you should stop by the office! it’s seriously an incredible resource and everything that goes on in there is confidential and we had to go through training so we’ll be able to actually help
^ what Lauren said!
Choices office is located in the 3rd floor UC, if anyone’s not sure!
So happy to see this! I was a Co-Director for two years! <3 Missing Choices so hard right now. :(
Does anyone know if both boys and girls share the same bathrooms in Sanford? I’m leaning towards choosing Sanford, but I just don’t want to be showering next to a guy or anything like that, lolol.
Also, details on Wright?
I’m not sure if I want to live in Wright or Sanford. Help D:
I lived in Sanford this year — go with Sanford.
The rooms are WAY bigger and the bathroom situation is (imo) better also.
All of the bathrooms in Sanford are gender neutral, so yes, anyone can walk in and use it. But they’re single stalls. I lived in room 145 and there were three bathrooms right near me. Two were private bathrooms where you walked in and locked the door behind you — no one else can come in while you’re in there. The other bathroom had two sinks and the toilet was in a separate stall that you could lock, but you could (and people often did) just lock the first door behind you and have the entire bathroom to yourself. Where as all of the bathrooms in Wright are also gender neutral but there are a row of like, 10 toilets and 10 showers and yes, you could very well end up showering next to a guy.
Since each Side of the Wright “L” has a different gender sharing the same bathroom, it is pretty unlikely you will end up showering with someone of a different gender unless you venture to other showers. Wright Hall’s renovations are beautiful, and living there was definitely one of the best experiences I had at Clark.
Sorry about the huge lapse in posting today- It was Spree Day at Clark! I was off having fun all day and forgot to queue up posts!
Now I’m baking parmesan fries, watching Orgasm Inc. (it is on Netflix now! I will post about it when I finish it), and writing a paper.
In other news, I did not win an Ipad during Spree Day. THANKS FOR NOTHING CLARKU.
Relevant posts will commence once this migraine goes away.
