My review

The Good:

When you arrive at Clarion University of Pennsylvania you are not just a number on a traditional campus. You are an individual who matters to not only the faculty but all the members of the institution. The class sizes are never too big even in a traditional "auditorium" classroom. You can develop a great relationship with professor s who know you by name and truly want to see you succeed. Also, one of the highlights of this university is it's big campus feel while still not being a large campus. You have all the facilities you want here including great dining options, a very nice recreational facility, brand new apartment style dorms, and a state of the art brand new science center. In addition to these great additions to campus over recent years you can not forget about the town of Clarion itself. Nestled in the rolling hills of Pennsylvania Clarion is a beautiful and scenic town that hosts the annual Autumn Leaf Festival for homecoming every year and attracts thousands upon thousands of people from all over to join in the many festivities.

The Bad:

If one had to choose the worst thing about Clarion University of Pennsylvania it would probably be it's winter weather. It's not terrible but if you're not from around here it takes a little getting used to as it is always colder than wherever home is for almost all students and snow accumulation is always more than anywhere else. Having said that the school does do a great job of clearing the snow and ice.

Would I do it again?

Yes, Thus far I have really felt at home here at Clarion.
