Why We Love 伍斯特

伍斯特 is a midsize city with big-city rhythms and spirit. This is a place of energy, opportunity, and attitude that you’ll want to explore, then make your own. Fueled by a $500 million downtown development project and its bustling 运河地区, 伍斯特 is experiencing an economic and physical transformation. New retail, restaurants, and residential spaces have invigorated the city and its residents.

Our Neighborhood

Clark is proud to be located in 伍斯特’s Main South neighborhood, a richly diverse and tightly knit community that has reimagined itself thanks to a dynamic partnership between the University and the city. Our students are not just visitors to Main South — they are participants, 贡献者, and good neighbors.

The place to be


This booming area has evolved into one of the city’s hippest hangouts, a place to hear great 音乐, enjoy ethnic food, and experience the good times 伍斯特 has to offer. A stone’s throw from Clark, the 运河地区 is a treat to visit during daylight hours, but the fun really starts after dark.
