"I chose Clarion University - Venango because it gives me the best opportunity to create a great future for myself. I love the small campus and the close-knit environment between everyone. I really enjoy traveling and recently went to Mexico, Jamaica, and Grand Cayman Islands on a cruise."

clinton_eakin"When I decided to change direction in my career, I challenged myself to become a Registered Nurse. Clarion University – Venango's nursing program is challenging and gives me the knowledge and experience I'll need to enter the field within two years. I chose Clarion – Venango for the smaller campus, personal relationships with professors and students, and for the high-quality nursing program. I feel comfortable at the campus and appreciate the great support here. I am excited to help other adult students at Clarion – Venango."

Isaac Coon"I chose Clarion University's Venango campus because it offered me the opportunity to start an internationally accredited business degree at a comparatively low tuition rate at a smaller, supportive campus. My faculty have all held PhD's in their fields, and given the smaller size of campus, I have been able to have more one-on-one time with them. The campus is beautiful and very stress relieving with large open grass yards with plenty of shade to sit down and study out in the fresh air. There is also a very large pond and stream to enjoy, which is at the forefront of the scenic Allegheny River just yards beyond campus. I highly recommend this campus if you like smaller class sizes and an encouraging environment filled with people who want to see you do your best."
