Six Ways You Know You’re a Clarkie

Circle 1

You race toward an intellectual challenge like a firefighter runs into a burning building.

 

Circle 2

You’d rather learn what’s inside someone’s mind than try to change it.

 

Circle 3

You believe “liberal arts” stands for something powerful, even daring.

 

Circle 4

You can thrive in a crowd, but you’re comfortable walking alone.

 

Circle 5

You don’t shy away from the grit of life. That’s the good stuff.

Circle 6

When it’s time to play, you’re not afraid to play hard.
