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.


Family and Friends Weekend

Fall is a great time to enjoy New England. Families and friends visit with students, enjoy activities and special events, and connect with other Clarkies.

October and April


Clark undergraduates present their research and creative work twice a year, at ClarkFEST in October and April.


International Gala

The International Student Association organizes International Gala every year, with students from all over campus contributing their song and dance talents.


Spree Day

Started in 1903, Spree Day — when classes are canceled and students enjoy a fun-filled day right before finals — is one of the most beloved traditions at Clark.


Graduate Student Multidisciplinary Conference

This conference highlights the important scholarship produced by Clark’s talented graduate student community.



Undergraduate and graduate students step to the podium to receive their diplomas, and celebrate their achievements with family and friends.



Each year during Commencement weekend, Clark alumni arrive on campus to reconnect with old friends, meet the newest alumni, and dance under the stars.
