Worcester has its good spots and its bad spots. However, Clark happens to be in one of its worst spots, and not much time will go by before the dean’s office will send out one of its “timely warnings” describing some theft or attack that occurred on or around campus. A lot of students are frightened by the area at first but tend to grow out of that fear as they explore the area a little more. Given some time and a little knowledge of public transportation, the better parts of Worcester can be explored and enjoyed. Being a city, Worcester provides more than adequate outlets for culture and the arts, and it is a great place for college students to open up to new ideas and people.
Clark is part of a consortium of schools, which makes for a very youthful crowd of people when school is in session. When out at bars and clubs, students will generally run into other Clarkies or people from one of the surrounding schools. However, when not interacting with a fellow student, some find that the local Worcester residents are not the most jovial people to interact with. The term “sketchy” is used on a daily basis to describe the members of the surrounding community. It’s not all bad, though. Clark’s location places it very close to many restaurants, bars, grocery and convenience stores, and a lively downtown club scene. The average student can certainly have an enjoyable time without running into any trouble in Worcester as long as they use a little bit of common sense and pay attention to their surroundings.
