Letter to the Editor: Don't count Clarion University out yet
As a proud alumnus of Clarion University, I am somewhat dismayed at the negative publicity that has appeared recently during state budget hearings in Harrisburg. You would think that Clarion University is about to close or is shaky at best.
To the parents of prospective college applicants within Indiana County, may I assure you that such predictions are not true. Please be advised that Clarion University has the lowest debt of any of the State System of Higher Education schools.
Do you know that speech-language pathology master’s level graduates have a 100 percent program completion rate and 98 percent employment rate? Do you know that business graduates have a 96 percent employment rate? Computer information science graduates have a 100 percent employment rate at Clarion.
I could go on and on.
These are just a few little-known facts about Clarion University that prove that it isn’t dead just yet!
Prospective college students, don’t sell Clarion short when choosing your school.
