When We All Come Together

Since 1903, Clark students have been gathering for Spree Day, letting loose before finals. If you see a bunch of students on the green dancing, eating, and playing on inflatable slides, you know it’s that time of year. The campus also turns out for Midnight Mayhem basketball in the fall, International Gala in the spring, and plenty of student, academic, and research events in between. To cap it all off: Commencement and Reunion in May.
