Whether it's Dr. Jim's crazy magic shows, or Dr. Wick hoisting himself to the ceiling to demonstrate pulleys, you will remember what they were teaching for a very long time. The hockey games are beyond fun. Our train whistle makes sure that everybody knows when we've scored a goal. All the professors are willing to sit and help you when ever you might need it, and are very friendly to talk with. Even the random students you might bump into on your way to Ro-Bro are nice. One thing about Clarkson is that it is small. This is not for some people, and it is for others. I like being able to recognize someone that I may have met a few days before. I enjoy the fact that I probably will see someone more than once because our campus isn't so large. It also makes it easier to get around on campus, and makes it easy to learn its layout.

Overall, I adore the academic programs. I'm a double-major in Math and Physics and wouldn't change my major(s) for anything. The faculty are responsive and will make great strides to help in any way they can. There's plenty of intelligent people out there who know good jokes and who can lighten the mood when the workload sensation kicks in. I've only been at Clarkson for 1 year, but the thrill of being inside another hockey rink of a winning team is something I take great pleasure in. If the person reading this wants a great thrill, come to a Clarkson Men's game at Cheel Arena. I guarantee you'll leave full of pep and have a smile on your face even if the home town boys don't come out victorious.
