Sherief Eldeeb is fascinated by how the brain and the body function together like partners in a long-term relationship. They may get along perfectly well. But when they clash, he needs to know why.

Tech That Matters

Coding Captain

As the only girl in her AP Physics class, Samantha Hughson rarely asked questions because she didn’t want her fellow students to think she couldn’t handle the coursework. That is no longer a problem.

More About Clark

In Our Students’ Words

Christian Rentsman

There’s something really awesome about learning in an environment where people are striving to become good people in a holistic way — intellectually, emotionally, and socially.

Christian Rentsman ’18

Olivia Schwartz

I love the strong sense of community at Clark and how the students are so passionate about what they do, whatever that may be.

Olivia Schwartz ’19

Lisa Musumba

During my first year I took on such an eclectic mix of classes that I learned new aspects of my identity. It was a great experience to tap into some passions I may not have known I even had.

Lisa Musumba ’19

Brendan Burgess

Liberal arts does matter. It’s such an advantage — even in a really STEM-focused field like I’m in — to be able to speak convincingly and to be able to write.

Brendan Burgess ’18

Toni Armstrong

Clark has encouraged me to challenge myself, and to build connections with people around me. I will never stop learning, and with that drive, I can make almost anything happen.

Toni Armstrong ’19

Liam Day

I came to Clark with essentially no idea of what I wanted to do. My experiences with the faculty, staff, and students have shaped who I am and helped me find a potential career.
