4 College Sophomore

Majors: I am currently switching into the Secondary Science Teaching program, and I am not having difficulties or challenges. The process has been extremely convenient. However, I know of some other majors, such as Health Science, that have full majors right now and hard to get into. You must apply to be in this major and be accepted, but the application process only occurs once during the school year; which is during the fall. This is extremely inconvenient for some students because they cannot take the require Health courses until they are accepted into the major, and may risk not graduating on time.

Majors: I have not yet had an internship, but next semester I am experiencing a student teaching job that I am extremely looking forward to. Clemson does a very well job in helping provide internships to students. There is a career center on campus that helps students form their resumes and find internships. In addition, many majors, such as Health Science, help find and provide students internships their senior year.

Weather: Clemson experiences all four seasons: Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring. In the fall semester we experience warm weather in the beginning, and towards Halloween the weather starts to get colder. It usually does not snow here, but sometimes it is cold enough to snow. In the spring semester it is cold in the beginning around winter time, and warms up near the end of the semester. Students at Clemson love the weather here, and one reasons students come to our University is for the weather.

Local Atmosphere: Clemson hosts many attractions that the community can be involved in. Events such as the First Friday Parade, Homecoming Week, and Halloween Trick or Treating are some examples in the fall that the community can come out and be involved in. In addition, there are many sports/recreation events going on throughout the year that people can attend. There is usually at least one sport/recreation event a week. The costs for these events vary, but are usually reasonable.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: The parking situation on campus is not the best. Permit costs are reasonable, but spots fill up quickly. The parking lots are far from most classes and take around 15 minutes to get to your class. Parking services is strict, and gives out ticketing and fines all the time. However, there is a bus service that goes to most off-campus housing, that is free, and comes on a daily 30 minute schedule.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: I am not a huge fan of the dining halls on campus. They have few healthy options, and not much variety in the meals they make. There are things I can find to eat there, however I do not look forward to eating there anytime I go.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Peer pressure to do drugs and alcohol at our school is not big at all. You can still have plenty of fun without doing alcohol or drugs. I have many friends that have never drank anything in their life, and they are some of the most fun people I know. The alcohol and drug visibility at our school is pretty low. The only places you'll see people drink in public is mainly downtown on a Thursday, Friday or Saturday.

Greek Life: Greek life is pretty big on Clemson's campus. It is an easy way to get involved on campus and meet other people. There always events hosted by the Fraternities and Sororities that anyone can be involved with. There are two areas for Greek housing that are on campus. They are dorms dedicated to just Greek life.

Facilities: Clemson has a lot to offer for campus activities and student hangouts. They have a program called Clemson LiVE that hosts activities every weekend for students to come to. In addition, the student center was recently redone and is beautiful and helpful!! The library is huge with 6 floors, and plenty of space for anyone that wants to study.

Local Atmosphere: I think Clemson is adorable. The downtown area might not offer much to outsiders if they're looking for a big party and lots of noise, but it's just about perfect me.

Weather: Love the weather here. Doesn't get way too cold and when you see that Clemson sunset of purple and orange, your heart will melt. Almost always perfect weather! Rains sometimes but it wouldn't look as pretty without all the nourishment for the plants and trees!!

Health & Safety: Redfern Health Center is available to all students and is very convenient and relatively quick for appointments. As to safety, I've never felt endangered walking alone on campus-- whether that be during the daytime or in the middle of the night.

Computers: There are lots of computers on campus that are available to students. Not only are there a bunch in the library, but there are also a lot of hidden computer labs that not a lot of people know about!!

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Campus housing wasn't too bad. The building I lived in last year was old but my RA was awesome and it was super close to my classes.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: There are is one part of campus strictness that almost every Clemson students cannot stand: PARKING SERVICES. The honor code is also taken very seriously. Otherwise, Clemson is a fairly understanding place.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: From what I've seen, Clemson has a perfect amount of partying. You aren't ostracized if you don't partake in drinking or drugs which I love but if you want to go out and have a good time, something is always going on!

4 College Junior

Academics: Love marketing as a major and the faculty. It's been hard to get advising meetings because it is such a popular major.

Off-Campus Housing: There are some amazing off-campus housing options for students at Clemson and some that are not so good. Just depends on what you're willing to pay and when you're looking!

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.
