    "I'm the first student from my high school to come here, and I am so happy that I “discovered” Clarkson! The Engineering & Management program has been perfect for me. I wasn't sure if I wanted to study business or engineering, so, I decided, why not try both? Clarkson has outstanding classes in both areas".
