The Clarke Compass inspires me to interact in diverse events and reflect on my pursuits in an awesome way. If I want to compete on the lacrosse team, play the saxophone, get involved in the community, join Playmakers Improv and make the Dean’s list, the Clarke Compass helps me manage all of those things!
