College Trivia: Round 7 (It’s Play Time!)

Clark Univ LogoQuestion: At what university does studying stop for a magical day filled with carnival games and rides?

Answer: Clark University.

If that doesn’t sell you on Clark I don’t know what will! Each year the university sanctions a day (“Spree Day”) in which classes are spontaneously canceled. Rather than studying, students are encouraged to enjoy the entertainment on the campus Green which is converted into a carnival with amusement rides!

If you are interested in Clark University, here are some of the other things that may make it appealing (besides, of course, a school tradition based on pure fun!).

Clark is a medium, sized, private liberal arts school located in Worcester, Massachusetts. According to their website: “Clark University prepares students to make a meaningful difference in a world hungry for change. The intimate urban campus is a dynamic community where intellectual engagement and active discovery are highly valued.”

FRIENDS YOU COULD MAKE: 2,311 – There are 2,311 total undergrads at Clark, and they have approximately 550 freshmen enter the university each year. Also, 62% of Clark students are from out of state, so you won’t be the only one looking to make friends.

ADMISSIONS: The average Clark student was in the top 30% of his/her high school class and made a 24-29 on the ACT and a 1630-1960 on the SAT. 68% of all Clark applicants are admitted, so it is considered a “somewhat selective” school.
