Words of Wisdom  

At Clarkson College, we pride ourselves on preparing students to be the best. What I like to remind students is that this process will, at times, involve giving yourself some grace. Higher education is life-changing and many lessons will be learned along the way. Many times, learning involves overcoming setbacks and getting up after a fall. Take advantage of the support of your amazing peers, faculty, and staff whenever you find yourself needing a hand!
