Group Campus Visits
Each year, Clark hosts dozens of group visits from schools and community-based organizations. Before planning your visit, please review the following group visit guidelines:
- Group visits are available most weekdays throughout the year. Group visits are not offered in December, January, or May, and cannot be scheduled during Massachusetts public school vacation weeks (February 18-22 and April 15-19 in 2013) or on weekends.
- To ensure visit availability, requests should be made at least one month prior to your preferred visit date. Late requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
- Typically, we limit participation in group visits to students in 9-12th grade. Requests for visits by younger students will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
- Given the capacity of our visitor center, we cannot accommodate groups larger than 75.
- Groups are required to have one chaperone for every twelve student visitors.
- We will work with you to create a customized experience for your group, which could consist of one or more of the following sessions:
- Information session with an admissions counselor
- Traditional campus tour led by a student ambassador
- Scavenger hunt tour led by a student ambassador (recommended for 9th & 10th graders)
- Roundtable discussion with the Assistant Dean of Students for ALANA Student Support
- Other session of your choice
- For all group visits, we have the following expectations of our visitors:
- Group leaders will plan travel accordingly and arrive on time for their visit session. We cannot guarantee programming for groups arriving more than thirty minutes after their scheduled visit time.
- Visitors will come to campus prepared to engage with our admissions staff and student ambassadors. Group leaders are encouraged to work with their students to develop a list of recommended questions before the visit.
- Visitors will be respectful of Clark’s learning environment at all times, especially when touring academic facilities. Cell phones should be turned off during the visit.
- Transportation and meal costs are the sole responsibility of the visiting school or community-based organization. If your group is interested in including a meal as part of a Clark visit, please contact Dining Services at (508) 793-7124 for more information.
