Clarion University of Pennsylvania

Clarion UniversityOur Mission: Clarion University of Pennsylvania provides transformative, lifelong learning opportunities through innovative, nationally recognized programs delivered in inclusive, student-centered environments. Among the rolling hills of western Pennsylvania at Clarion University, you'll find 5,000 students, who are Courageous and Confident. These students are building a bright future through challenging academics and diverse interests as well as engaging with a town of 6,000 people who embrace them. Clarion prepares its students in business, education, health, science and the arts with a small student-to-faculty ratio and nationally and internationally accredited programs. There also are internship and study abroad opportunities to broaden one's horizons. Students embrace learning at our scenic Clarion campus, which has evolved since its beginnings in 1867; at our growing Venango campus located in Oil City; and through Clarion Online, which offers education from the comfort of one's own home. Students are able to take advantage of these exciting educational opportunities through financial aid. Ninety-one percent of our students receive some form of financial aid. In addition to nearly 150 programs, Clarion University students also enjoy enriching personal lives. With more than 130 student organizations including academic, athletic, intramural, Greek, political, multicultural, service and special interest groups, students become unique individuals and leaders at Clarion. Through these academic and student life opportunities, our students interact with other students from 44 states and 18 countries. Students live in police-patrolled housing with on-campus parking. Some of this housing is on campus while other options are nearby in university-affiliated apartments. Students can choose to live in suite-style residences and apartment housing. There also is a wide assortment of dining options, including Eagle Commons (student dining hall), Starbucks, Denny's, food courts and cafes. Main Street, lined with specialty shops and locally owned cafes, is located just steps away from our Clarion campus, allowing students to be an integral part of the community. Bus transportation is available to the Exit 62 business district off of Interstate 80, which has a mall, restaurants and a movie theater. Upon graduation, students will join 53,000 worldwide who have soared to success in their chosen fields.
