3 College Senior

Campus Dining: Wednesday's are the days when everyone comes to the cafe.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: The housing on campus is not a far walk to and from classes, which is always good when you are not a morning person like me.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: I believe there should be more restaurants versus fast food places. That's how I gained so much weight freshmen year.

4 College Junior

Academics: I am a Digital Design major looking to go into animation. The art department as a whole as grown a lot in just one year but there's still room for improvement. It would be cool if the department offered various concentrations for the art programs offered. The work load is good for being an art major. Working on projects outside of class is ideal if you want to finish your projects on time. The facilities need an update visually to be more visually aesthetic for a creative atmosphere. There is a need for art related internship and job opportunities.

3 College Junior

Academics: Professors are okay... Many are actually helpful. Curriculum and workload could be heavier. Popular study areas are Mass Communications, Science based majors and Education.

2 College Junior

Parking: With the addition on a new dorm, on campus parking is even more limited than before.

3 College Junior

Transportation: There are a few campus vehicles like vans that are used for going to local stores like Walmart or community service. There is a public transportation but I've never experienced it.

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I'm not sure about off campus housing because I live on campus. I haven't inquired about off campus housing.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: I don't go out that much. I am on the gospel choir. We are all the time going to different churches in the community. The chuch folk are nice and welcomes us when we get there. I love the choir life!!

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

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.
