Picture Yourself Here

Clarkson University is an experience — one you’ve just got to see for yourself. 

We’re a tight-knit, driven and innovative community located near the Adirondack Park and its scenic mountains, waterways and Olympics recreation. Together, we ignite connections across disciplines and push boundaries through research and technology innovation that is making a difference. We encourage learning by doing – in the classroom, through activities like SPEED team competitions, Rise HIgh and Clarkson Ignite, and outside of class, through internships, co-ops, study abroad and immersive experiences.
