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!
