3 College Sophomore

Computers: There are a decent amount of computers scattered around campus, but as you would assume during midterms and finals week people are pretty much sleeping at the computers, so finding one is pretty difficult, but that's at any school. Clemson however has an app that you can download that will tell you how many computers in which lab are available to keep you from walking around campus in endless circles. The only reason I'm not giving it an A is because of printing. I have no idea why Clemson continues to use these ginormous printers from the 80's. A lot of them either stop working all the time, so they take your money AND you have to reprint, or they take 20 minutes to warm up. A true inconvenience.

Diversity: As a predominately white university in the south, some may at first view Clemson as to possibly being a place that doesn't welcome diversity, be it that in SC there is still much racism present and being fought. However, as an African-American woman at Clemson, I've never been on a campus that felt more like home. Ethnic diversity is encouraged and forums on racial equality, religious tolerance, etc. are constantly held to promote cultural awareness and acceptance. There are moments when I have experienced racism on campus but those moments are few and far between.

Academics: Clemson focuses on the more technical field (science, math, engineering) than on humanities. I still am grateful for the choice I made but having better programs for English majors would be a plus.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: Financial aid at Clemson is sub par. They are not very helpful in that department and rarely offer students what they need (not even for the students that deserve it). They also do not offer and scholarhips that students can apply for directly -- eveything is handed to a couple lucky stdents. Finacial aid at Clemson is a hassle, and it involves a lot of waiting.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is Clemson is slightly annoying. Most students are involved in Greek life because there is nothing better to do. It is rare to see students not in a Greek letter shirt. Although Greek life is a large componenet of Clemson, most students are very nice and everyone is pretty accepting of others.

4 College Freshman

Weather: The weather in Clemson is dry. In the summer there is an extremely dry heat with no breeze. It rarely rains which is a pro, but when it does, there is a presistant mist all day long. In the summer there is also lots of pollen, and everything outside is yellow. The winter is pretty cold and slightly surprising for South Carolina.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There are all kinds of students at Clemson, and not everybody is from the South. The majority of the students are very smart and look well put together. Greek life is popular at Clemson as well.

Majors: There are quite a few majors here although future engineers are high in number on the campus.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Clemson is such a small town with just about every surrounding store polished with the school colors(orange).I can feel the school spirit everywhere.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Certain classes may give you a challenge but talking with your professors and taking advantage of tutoring opportunities can always help.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The main sport which is the most supported is football. Football is really big here and I feel like it overshadows all the other sports. The football experience here is amazing but I just wish the other sports had the same appreciation.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The academics are a great test of your knowledge and can most of the time make you think long and hard about a certain subject but with the right resources and help success can be achieved.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is here for events and to give back to the community. The sororities are okay, each different in their own way however the frats are beyond friendly if you get to know these guys.

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Its the greatest city on earth! Everyone is beyond friendly!

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: We have a housing fair which allow the students to see every appartment complex thats in the area.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: Clemson has student pride like no other school. It is near impossible to attend CU without adding a bunch of orange to your wardrobe. If you don't, you'll have nothing to wear on Fridays!

4 College Freshman

Facilities: The facilities, although a bit dated, are great for the most part. Some buildings aren't the prettiest, but they are all well equipped and easy to navigate.

3 College Freshman

Computers: Tigernet isn't the most reliable, but if you're not connecting to the internet at 11:30 pm when everyone is trying to submit assignments, it's pretty fast. CCIT is also very good at technical support and providing easy ways to get the software you need.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: There are plenty of organizations that you can join on campus. A lot of them are also student run. The academic programs are also very good. They really challenge you to learn the material so that you know it. There is definitely a lot going on downtown during the weekends, so it's nice to go down there and visit all of the restaurants. The buildings on campus are nice, but some of them are quite old.

3 College Freshman

Parking: The parking isn't that bad on campus, but freshman have to park pretty far out from the dorms so that is kind of a hassle. There are usually a good amount of available parking spots, which is good. The permit cost is somewhat high but having a car isn't really required just because Clemson's downtown is very close to campus. They are very strict about parking tickets and you will definitely get one if you aren't careful.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There are a variety of guys and girls on campus. There are quite a few girls who are very confident with themselves and dress to show that, but it really is a great campus. There are multiple types of people, from foreigners to the preps to the "nerds." In general, everyone is extremely nice and welcoming and they are great people.

Campus Dining: Food is great at first. Dining halls are very nice and renovated. Food can get tiring especially if it's all you eat.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Some places are better than others. Clemson is planning on building many new freshman dorms within the next few years.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Its a very safe place. There is a small hospital type area on campus that students can use for just about anything.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Many students are in Greek life at Clemson. It is a big deal in a place like this.

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.
