Since its earliest years, Clark College has embraced its beloved mascot, Oswald. 

Clark College Grounds and Nursery Specialist Gayla Shanahan transformed the juniper bushes outside of Frost Arts Center into a flock of penguins.

In his 2007 State of the College address, President Bob Knight proclaimed Clark College to be "The Penguin Nation."  

The concept has taken flight in everything from Penguin Nation pins and other items in the Clark College Bookstore to the college's Healthy Penguin initiative.

It's also evident in our sustainability efforts to promote a Green Penguin Nation.
