4 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is everything you would expect it to be if you're a part of it. If not, it is not overwhelming- about 20% of students are greek. Students who are not greek often times participate in all of the greek activities regardless.

Scholarships: There are only a couple and not easy to get unless you are an instate student receiving a government scholarship such as LIFE or HOPE.

Off-Campus Dining: There are a few that are great but the more upscale places are in the neighboring towns.

5 College Junior

Transportation: There are shuttles to everywhere you could want or need to go; apartment complexes, grocery stores, neighboring towns, etc. I know tons of people who have gone all four years without a car at school and had no issues at all.

Greek Life: Greek life at Clemson is a pretty big deal. A lot of students get involved in greek life. However, the university is so big, that you don't feel left out if you don't get involved in it. The greek life seems to center around parties, events, and some community service. Greek life allows for guys and girls to branch out socially and meet many people. Also, to allow students to make connections that may help in finding jobs one day.

Academics: I am in the Engineering College. Engineering is known for it's difficulty in curriculm, however the teachers are EXCELLENT and they make learning the difficult concepts fun. The civil engineering building is a poor representative of the major however. It needs to be remodeled and updated. Our college has many job fairs that provide opportunities for engineering students to find co-ops, internships, and jobs.

Scholarships: Financial aid at Clemson is a nightmare. The financial aid office always seems to be overloaded with calls, emails, and people. The representatives always seem rushed and their time estimations for certain things always seem to be less than actual and are already estimated to take months. However, the ladies are friendly. My suggestion would be to apply early, appeal early and have patience.

Academics: Clemson University was a huge change from my previous college. Going from a small school to a massive school was daunting, but Clemson does not feel like the huge University it is. It feel like a community and the professors use this feel in the classroom as well. They do a great job of making themselves availbale to the students in and out of class. There are many tutoring and study sessions offered for almost every class. There are test banks available that are seperated by class and even teacher. The registration process is a little difficult. Students have to figure out the process on their own, however the advisors are available if needed and the registration system is fairly understandable.

Campus Housing: Living on campus is very fun. The dining halls and your classes are all right there so you can wake up at 7:45 for an 8 AM, roll out of bed, and go to class. It is also a great way to meet new people, especially as a freshman. It does cost a decent amount, but I would definitely say it is worth it for the first year or two.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: There are plenty of scholarships for in-state students, but it is very difficult to get additional scholarships other than recruiting ones for out-of-staters. Usually the scholarships you have initially are the scholarships you will have for the four years you are there.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: Drinking Is a Choice – The drinking scene is present, but it is still a choice. No one is forcing you to drink. The fraternity pledges will pick you up to go to their parties if you want to go, but there is plenty of other stuff to do on campus besides party.

Campus Dining: Obviously, eating at a dining hall gets old, but clemson's dining halls do a good job of having a lot of variety.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: More times than not, it is quite difficult to find a spot, but prices are not too bad, and (other than game days), parking enforcement is not too annoying.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There is an incredible amount of off-campus housing options with varying prices. There is good availability most of the year, and most options are placed strategically and conveniently.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: the performing arts/music degree at Clemson is definitely not top notch, but it is still extremely enjoyable and informative and will set me up perfectly for where i want to go.

Campus Housing: Beautiful campus, great bars and places to eat around.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: Nightlife for students under 21 can be somewhat of a challenge. If you have a fake ID then you can pretty much get into any bar. During the summer the house parties are very limited but during football season there is always something going on from all ages. Whether it be a fraternity function, house party, or dinner with friends, you will never be bored.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: Our dining halls offer a wide variety of choices. If you are more healthy they offer salad bars with all kinds of fruits and vegetables. The staff always keep the food fresh and the dining areas clean.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Clemson has a great community life. We are one big family at Clemson and we all look out for one another.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I have been living on campus and therefore cannot give a personal opinion. I do know that there are a lot of options out there.

College Sophomore

Nightlife: I'm not entirely sure of this, given that I have a full schedule and therefore don't often go out around the town at night.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: So far I am definitely enjoying my major. I haven't quite begun the specific courses, but instead have been taking the General Engineering courses. I feel that the curriculum is very well planned out, and there are a great deal of opportunities such as internships and co-ops. There are also workshops to help with interviews and resumes, as well as the Michelin Career Center to help with finding jobs.

Academics: Great programs are available for a variety of majors. Professors are generally very helpful and knowledgeable. The TA's are probably some of the greatest assets, and the tutors as well. There is an Academic Success Center and a variety of ways to help improve your progress.

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.
