            Clarke offers smaller classrooms where your professors truly care about your education. You're not just a number at Clarke, you are a part of the community. I still stay in touch with a few of my professors.

            I loved my time at Clarke. It was the first place I understood that being a powerful woman was choice. Intimate and supportive the whole way. The theater department was my family and I still love them!
