Clark University
Clark University has been included in The Princeton Review’s 2018 edition of Colleges That Pay You Back.

Clark is ranked 11th on the list of top 25 schools for making an impact.

“Undergrads report that they are encouraged to ‘actively connect their academics to something bigger and more meaningful. All aspects of the school, from the dining hall menus to the syllabi in literally every department, focus on how students can make the world a better place whether it be social, environmental, geopolitical, economic, medical, or anything in between,” one Clark student is quoted as saying in the book.

Schools were chosen from a pool of 650 national colleges and universities.

The Princeton Review’s 2018 edition of “Colleges That Pay You Back

This annual guidebook, now in its fourth year, is the education services company’s resource for college-bound students and their parents shopping for affordable, academically outstanding colleges that graduate their students to successful, rewarding careers.

The Princeton Review chose the 200 schools for this edition based on a comprehensive analysis of data from its surveys of administrators at more than 650 colleges in 2016-17.

Survey topics broadly covered academics, cost, financial aid, career services, graduation rates, student debt, and alumni support.

In all, more than 40 data points were utilized to select the schools for the book and tally its ranking lists.

Only 7 percent of the nation’s four-year colleges made it into this book, noted Robert Franek, its lead author, and The Princeton Review’s Editor-in-Chief.

“These schools were bona fide standouts for the return they deliver on one’s college investment.”
