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.

5 College Freshman

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.

3 College Sophomore

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.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Clemson is a college town, which is great. Citizens in the town love the college students.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There is not much help finding a place to live off campus. That is on your own.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The staff in the housing department is incredible, and I have enjoyed lving on campus.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus at Clemson is a great experience. The college does a wonderful job of pairing compatible students to live together and everyone within the dorm is always open to meeting new faces. Dorm room doors are always open and often dorms collect groups of good friends from the same floor.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: The student center is mainly a place where students can study in the small lounge or get food at the cafe. I personally am there a lot for my work with one of the university's big six organizations, which has many events within the student center as well as it being the location for the organization's office.
The workout facility for all students, Fike, is very well kept, although it is small for the size of the university. After winter break it is almost impossible to find an open machine, but if you go year round during the odd hours of the day or night it is a wonderful place to workout and exercise. It also has great hours, being open until midnight every night.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The weather at Clemson is amazing when it is warm, but my freshman year it rained constantly, at least every week if not multiple times a week. This made it difficult to convince myself to go to the library, where I have a much easier time studying, or across campus to Hendrix to get some paperwork done for the Organization I am a part of.

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.
