5 College Junior

Athletics: The school spirit is one of the things that sets Clemson aside from other schools. The fan support is excellent and comes hand and hand with how excellent the athletics are.

Scholarships: It's kind of a hassle to receive financial aid. There are several sheets that have to filled out and sent in. Also, for summer school I didn't receive any financial aid and I was quite expensive for my one online class that I took. But, the financial aid I did receive for the first year did help me a lot and I also received a considerable amount for the coming year.

Overall Experience: Overall, the experience is excellent. There's a great family atmosphere and most people are extremely friendly. The sporting events are always worth going to because the they're always intense and enjoyable. It's easy to join clubs which is one of the best ways to make friends. The professors are always willing to help any student and they make classes fun and enjoyable. I'm definitely glad that I made to choice to go to Clemson because I don't think I could have picked a better school.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The career prospects for Clemson are great. There are many career fair held on campus throughout the semesters, as well as opportunities to take part in an internship. There's also Creative Inquiry which gives students an opportunity to do undergraduate research. Also, there are advisors that help students, for up to a year after they graduate, create resumes and find jobs. Clemson offers excellent career prospects.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Campus Housing is pretty average, at least where I was for my first year. But, the atmosphere is great and it's easy to meet people and make friends.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: For the added freedom you get from not living on campus, off-campus housing is great.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: The Campus strictness is strict were it needs to be and lenient where it needs to be as well.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Depending on where you live its okay.

4 College Junior

Nightlife: Nightlife is great downtown is just minutes from campus.

5 College Junior

Academics: The architecture major is time consuming but great. A unique aspect is that we are required to study abroad.

4 College Junior

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: On Campus Dining is great as well. There are many options to choose from in the Dining Halls and the late-night options are good as well.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: The Off-Campus Dining is very good and has a large variety of places to go with good student discounts.

5 College Junior

Majors: There were no challenges for to get into my major. I transferred in with a lot of credits so it was an easy transition for me. The most important criteria for admission are grades, test scores and GPA. The application process is not so abnormal, but if you don't have the grades to get in at first there is a different process to go through to get in.

5 College Junior

Majors: Being in the Architecture program is very time consuming and challenging at times, but I wouldn't trade for any other major. I truly enjoy this major because it's what I have wanted to do since I was little. a very unique aspect about the program is that we are required to study abroad for a semester in either Barcelona or Italy.

Greek Life: I'm not in a sorority so I can't really say but greek life is a pretty big part of Clemson. The fraternities always have parties going on.

Diversity: Clemson is not a very diverse school most everyone is white and preppy. There is still some diversity and everyone can find some group to fit into. Everyone is pretty accepting of one another and the school promotes acceptance and diversity. There is an international festival every year which helps everyone see some of the diversity the school has and there are also international organizations.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Clemson is a very spirited school that mostly revolves around football and other sports. I love how everyone gets together for game day to cheer on the football team which is a big part of the Clemson family experience. The football games are great and everyone is wearing their orange and its a fun to be on the hill when the football team runs down it. The campus is beautiful and everyone gets along pretty well.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The town of Clemson revolves around its college and its pretty much just the college and then some restaurants. Downtown Clemson has mostly shops that sell Clemson merchandise and restaurants and a few bars. Anderson is pretty close which has more shopping and has places like target and kohls.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: There are three dining halls on campus and they are all okay. It really depends on the day and who prepared it on how good the food is. Sometimes they make weird things like chicken nuggets with pineapple and some kind of weird honey sauce but they always have pizza, sandwiches, and salad. The cookies are probably the best part of the dining hall the ones that are fresh from the oven are pretty amazing. Overall the food is average and varies from day to day.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Clemson has a relatively safe campus. There is tiger transit which will pick you up from anywhere on campus to another place on campus for free from 6pm-6am. There was a sexual assault on campus my freshmen year that involved a girl running at night and being assaulted but it was handled very well. It is safe to walk around at night depending on where you are on campus but I would recommend using tiger transit or walking with a group of friends just to be extra safe.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Preppy. That word pretty much sums up a big portion of the student body. Practically all the girls have monogrammed everything and wear tennis shoes or flips flops with nike shorts and over-sized T-shirts. During the football games you will see alot of girls in orange dresses. The guys typically wear polo shirts or T-shirts and khaki shorts and sperrys or something like that.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Clemson is a HUGE football and sports school. On football game days everyone comes out to the games dressed in orange. There definitely is a lot of school spirit as well as a lot of traditions involved in the football games.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus there are a lot of fast food and some local places. The place that people would say has the best food would be the smoking pig which has good BBQ but its not super close. Downtown Clemson has chain restaurants as well as a few local places and bars. There is a road near Clemson that pretty much has every fast food restaurant you could imagine.

Clemson offers an amazing college experience. Students return for the rest of their lives to see how the campus has changed and to support the Tigers. Although it is located in a small town, the school is big enough that there is never a dull moment, and the location only makes the student body closer to one another. As anyone who has been to Clemson knows, the students' blood here is orange, and the Clemson spirit is contagious for almost anyone who attends.
