The success of our students is Clarkson's priority. Our academic programs are ranked nationally by U.S. News & World Report, and we are one of the smallest schools in the category only with 3,000 students. That means your student will receive more personal attention in our rigorous program.
We emphasize stretching boundaries because we want all of our students to pursue and achieve their life goals. Students can explore multiple departments fields of study or extracurricular activities. With a curiosity that crosses disciplines, our students are encouraged explore their various interests. Perhaps that's why one out of every five Clarkson graduates is a CEO, vice president, or owns a company.
Visit campus life to find out more ways your student can get involved, and also spend some time in our residence life to check out our living and dining facilities. Our Career Center is a great resource where we detail the co-op and internship opportunities, and where you can see the more than 150 companies that visit campus each year. You may also want to get involved in our parents association, which promotes active parent involvement in the University.
But the first thing we encourage you to do is come to Potsdam and take a look at the University in person. We think you will like what you see.
