5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The class size is small. You really get that one on one experience with professors. It's great because you learn a lot more and get a lot of attention when needed.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Claflin is ranked as one of the top 10 HBCU'S there is. An education and a degree means a lot from Claflin. A lot of careers are looking for students when they graduate. Also we have an excellent career counselor who help us find great career opportunities.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: Claflin dining is good, but they should consider operating more hours than whats provided. Also they should add other resturants on campus, because all we have is pizza hut and jazzman's cafe. After awhile it gets old eating the samething all the time.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life are one of the biggest things at Claflin. Non-Greeks enjoy watching the Greeks stroll and everything else they do.

3 College Junior

Facilities: It's okay. After a certain time there is nowhere to hang out at, unless you have friends off campus.

4 College Junior

Academics: In the school of Business there is so much opportunity provided for the majors in this cluster. The teachers are excellent and help out students in anyway they can. Also there are a lot of programs to join and apply to for internships and jobs.

4 College Junior

Academics: Academics is the best thing at Claflin. They provide you with a great education, volunteer service, global experience, internships, and job opportunities. You have to take advantage of all the opportunities out there, other wise you will lose out.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Again Orangeburg needs to provide a better atmosphere for it's college students.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There's not much option of food around town. After awhile it's just the same stuff over and over again.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: It's great living on campus, but it's visitation rules are too strict!

3 College Junior

Nightlife: Orangeburg should provide more things for college students to do.

4 College Junior

3 College Senior

Facilities: Claflin University is a religiously private HBCU. We value scholarship, leadership and promote excellence in everything we do as a university, which sets us a part from other HBCU's. We are a family at Claflin and we work towards bettering ourselves academically and individually at our school.

Campus Strictness: They are all about the students safety.

3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: The area is just okay. I wish they had a bigger mall, a movie theater, bowling alley or something for us to do on the weekends.

4 College Senior

Academics: The curriculum is not bad at all in the biology department. We have a lot of work sometimes, but its all geared towards our understanding of the subjects. They encourage students to look for internships every summer.

4 College Senior

Academics: The professors in the biology department varies. Some are good and are willing to help you anytime, but some are really really hard.

5 College Senior

Diversity: I love meeting people of different backgrounds at my university. We are a very diverse campus.

4 College Senior

Claflin University sets itself apart by being a small, family-oriented campus—and you will notice this from the moment you first arrive here. Everyone, from the administrators to the maintenance staff, is always warm, welcoming, friendly, and ready to assist the students. It is very hard to make enemies at this school because everyone respects everyone else and where they came from. The students and faculty come from different backgrounds, yet that does not lead to segregation.

The people here possess genuine Southern hospitality, a trait that never gets old around campus, and everyone takes pride in the rich history they have become a part of at Claflin. Everyone is always focused on their academic success and achieving the desired “Claflin Confidence.” The school constantly makes a personal effort to help students achieve all their goals by helping in whatever way they can. When you graduate from Claflin, you will not only leave with your diploma, but you will also leave with a wealth of great friendships and family bonds that you have made with others at the University. It truly is a rewarding experience.
