One thing that surprises many Clark College students is how much more vibrant the campus life is than they’d expected it to be. Make no mistake: This community college really is a community. There are almost endless opportunities to get involved, make friends, have fun, and stretch yourself in new ways. Explore your options, and you’ll discover that some of the best learning doesn’t take place in a classroom.
