4 College Junior

Academics: The workload is heavy at Clemson but a lot of the professors really care about the students and are willing to help out.

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!

1 College Junior

Parking: Hugely disappointed with Clemson's parking services. The parking employees stand on duty and write tickets for hundreds of dollars and often have no sympathy for students. Faculty parking is everywhere and student parking is a 20-30 minute walk from classes. Doesn't really help for getting to class on time!

2 College Junior

Scholarships: It's so hard to get any help as an out-of-state student! I'm a transfer so that might have something to do with it but I'm really trying to get some help but haven't gotten anything from Clemson.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: Although I don't have a meal plan this semester, I often hear of people going and enjoying the food at the dining halls. The only complaint I hear is that they aren't open late and sometimes the food gets monotonous.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is okay here at Clemson. Some organizations I know do a lot of community service, but most of them are known just for the parties they throw.

3 College Junior

Facilities: Clemson'e facilities are pretty good. We just built an Academic Success Center that is really great. We always have something going on so students will never get bored. They just have to make an effort to read the emails.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: The food is edible, but it could be a lot better. Clemson is making moves to improve it, though. The dining halls have been renovated, so they're really cool to sit in and enjoy your meal.

3 College Junior

Facilities: This campus has many great opportunities from internships to co-op to study abroad programs. They do everything they can to make sure you graduate with a job and that you have the resources and skills to get it.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I haven't been very impressed with my school's financial aid process. The employees aren't very helpful, and they have messed up my financial aid multiple times. They have overcharged me, not let me accept my loan, and apply my scholarships. You need to make sure to stay on top of your financial aid status, because they will not notify you.The only nice thing is there is a financial aid office you can go to with your problems, and they will help you.

Nightlife: Underage nightlife is difficult. Almost all of the clubs are for 21 or older, so you barely seen underage drinking. The parties usually consist of frat parties, house parties, or apartment parties. The nice thing about frat parties is they have sober pledge drivers so no drinking and driving is involved. Almost every apartment or house party is fun. However, you have to have a designated driver, are stay somewhere in walking distance.

Transportation: Transportation at Clemson very good. We have CAT buses which come to almost all off campus apartment/house complexes. This helps provide transportation for people without cars. The CAT buses come every thirty minutes and are for free. In addition, there are many apartment complexes close to campus that are in walking distance, or able to ride a bicycle from. Plus, there are multiple parking lots that provide places for people to park. These places require a parking pass, but the pass is not expensive at all.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: At Clemson University you will find a wide variety of boys. They can range from: southern charmer, city boys, country boys, urban city boys, or skater punk. However, the typical Clemson boy is a southern charmer, usually wearing Southern Tide or Polo. The typical girls here are what you would think of your "average sorority girl". The girls are southern belles. When you first come here, you think it is very southern, but the people are extremely nice. Everyone shows off their warm southern charm!

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: Underage drinking on campus they will send your to speak in front of a board but I've never heard anyone getting kicked out on their first offense. Underage drinking, honor code, and etc is mainy on a case by case situation.

Computers: Computers are located all throughout campus. I've never had trouble or ever had to wait to get on to the computers on campus. The wireless connection in the older dorms, Johnstone and the Shoeboxes, are always going out. No need for a personal printer, all printing on campus is free.

Parking: Beware of parking services! They will not hesitate in issuing tickets, which is very annoying since parking is limited on campus. If you are on the West side of campus its easier to wait for the Catbus of Tiger Transit than to walk with all of your luggage. All of the parking lots are located on the outskits of campus. If you need to park close to go to the library after hours its impossible sometimes. You dont need a car on campus but if you are driving to campus, there are no parking spots after the 10 o'clock class section.

Scholarships: I did not qualify for any of Clemson Univeristies scholarships but managed to earn private and state scholarhips. I was told my family makes too much, however, this is not the case.

Parking: The parking isn't bad if you get there early. Luckily most of my classes were in the morning so I couldnormally find a decent spot. However, the later it gets in the day, the harder it is to find one.

5 College Junior

Facilities: Clemson is all about being a "Family". Everyone here sticks together and loves to help each other out.

4 College Junior

Nightlife: The bars are only for people over 21 and the frat parties are for sophomores and below, which lives junior year stuck in limbo.

4 College Junior

Weather: Its the south, so how could you not love the weather!

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Tons of nice guys, at least on the non-party end of the spectrum(as i am). Look good and really nice. Plenty of gorgeous girls as well.

Campus Dining: The best thing is you always can see your friends in the dining halls, but those don't have the greatest food, although there usually is a pretty large variety. Also, you always have other options on campus if you're really not feeling the dining hall, like subway, papa johns, or einsteins bagels.

Campus Housing: Freshmen year, even though they aren't the highest quality dorms, is great because you have 2 main locations where freshmen are, so its really easy to become friends with those people that live so close to you, and eat at the same dining halls. Upperclassmen housing isn't the best, some apartment and suite style living, not that much better or worse than off campus. Upperclassmen on campus is limited though, not enough for everyone.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Gotta be 21+ to enjoy downtown. Gotta be greek any other way if you want to party

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.
