From Family Weekend to Commencement

The University hosts several key events over the course of the academic year that draw Clark students, faculty, family, and friends. Below are some of our featured events.


Family Weekend

Fall is a great time to enjoy New England. Families visit their students,  enjoy activities and special events, and connect with other Clarkies.

October and April

Fall Fest and Academic Spree Day

Clark undergraduates present their research and creative work each semester: Fall Fest in October and Academic Spree Day in April.


Graduate Student Multidisciplinary Conference

This conference highlights the important scholarship produced by Clark’s talented graduate student community.



Each year during Commencement weekend, Clark alumni arrive on campus to reconnect with old friends, meet the newest alumni, and dance under the stars.



Undergraduate and graduate students step to the podium to receive their diplomas, and celebrate their achievements with family and friends.
