4 College Junior

Weather: I grew up in upstate SC, so I'm used to the weather, and I like it. It hardly gets cold in the winter, but it gets really hot in the summer and fall.

5 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Clemson is a more casual campus, people dress in athletic wear most often. I transferred from another campus and Clemson's is so much more friendly.

Local Atmosphere: Clemson is a small town but I wouldn't consider that a negative thing. It's a town you can really get to know and instantly feel familiar and comfortable with. If the stores downtown aren't enough you can go to nearby towns such as Greenville. There is always some type of sporting event going on no matter what season or weather. Some of my friends leave their doors unlocked, I wouldn't suggest doing that but that gives you an idea with how safe people feel here. I haven't met anyone who hasn't fallen in love with Clemson and I've lived here my whole life!

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I believe the university takes this issue very seriously but it relies on the student to make smart decisions. Who you associate with is the key.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Diversity is cetainly not on the level of an urban school but considering our location there is a nice mixture of races, religions, economic levels and orientation.

4 College Freshman

Computers: Students must have there own laptops. The on-campus computer store has special deals in the fall on computers which come pre-loaded with necessary software. Since the entire campus is is WIFI enabled access is effortless.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Being on campus, you can walk everywhere that you would ever need to go, even church, if that is what you are into. There is never a dull moment, so if you are bored with nothing to do, you can immediately find something that Clemson has going on. Or if you need to study, the library is huge and open 24/7 so you can get that last minute studying in.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I will be trying to apply for internships next year, but from what I have heard Clemson's Co-op program is amazing. You get to be interviewed by all of the companies in the area and then you can be selected to do a co-op with the co-op that selects you. The co-ops are a paid position with the company and you can co-op as many semesters as you want.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I love Engineering and so even though it is hard, in the end I will be doing what I love and that is all that really matters. You have to work hard for the things that you want in life, and you definitely have to work at engineering!

3 College Freshman

Majors: Engineering is rough. The classes are hard, I have to take math every semester along with engineering courses and science courses and other classes required by Clemson in order to graduate. But it will all be worth it in the end.

3 College Freshman

Majors: In order to go into Engineering you have to have excellent math scores and great grades in high school. Then you have to take all of the required prerequisites in order to pick the type of engineering that you would like to go into. The prerequisites take a year to complete. Then you are good to go from there.

2 College Senior

Campus Strictness: The Clemson Police are always out and are very strict. Clemson does well with it's dorm strictness though, allowing students to call for medical help without getting into trouble if someone is showing signs of alcohol poisoning. You can get 2-3 violations without getting into any real big trouble.

3 College Senior

Nightlife: Clemson is home to MANY house parties and Fraternity parties for people under 21 years of age. People who are 21 and older usually go to house parties and go downtown to bars, but mainly go to bars at that age. Clemson doesn't have any big, nice clubs except for a few small ones that are more like bars than clubs.

4 College Senior

Diversity: The diversity on the Clemson University campus is prevalent. Many people of different races/ethnic backgrounds and religions are seen. Clemson is very accepting of diversity and makes a huge point to all students that diversity at Clemson is very important. The major proportion of students at Clemson are white, however, there are many people of different races, religions, political beliefs, economic backgrounds and sexual orientation.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Clemson has great programs to offer you. The professors are great, but they are hard. They will help you as much as they need to so you can get the desired grade. Class discussion is encouraged in smaller classes as well as larger classes. Clemson will also help you make sure you are in the right field of study.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Workload is manageable. Different networking opportunities.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: All incoming freshman are going to drink so the first offense should not get them into too much trouble . but it is better to be safe than sorry.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: I feel like their should be more promotion of activities that does not include sports. Also, better clubs and activities to do that do not all fall at the end of a semester when people need to focus on school work

3 College Freshman

Transportation: The school offers a bus system which is alright, however the bus seems to be slow. A few of the off campus living communities offer a shuttle to campus for those that live there. Parking is really the biggest annoyance. You are required to park far away from the part of campus that school buildings are on and often times it's even hard to find spots there.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: For out of state students, Clemson does not offer much financial aid. I received a few student loans from the office. It would be nice if Clemson had as many scholarships for out of state kids and they did for the instate. However, I do understand it is a state school and there are regulations.

Off-Campus Housing: There are many all student developments and all your friends can live in the same community if you wish. There are apartments cottages, and houses available to students. The commute from them all is relatively short. The only thing annoying is the parking situation on campus.

4 Recent Alumnus

Nightlife: Ther are some pubs in downtown clemson as well as fun things to do in Greenville (45 minutes away). Many students go to fraternity parties as well.

4 Recent Alumnus

Local Atmosphere: Lake Hartwell and the mountains give Clemson local outdoor activities.

5 College Junior

Computers: The computers on Clemson campus are really good. The network/ wireless access is really fast. Each student also gets $25 on your account for using the printer. Its really awesome!

3 College Junior

Parking: The parking is okay. You might have to walk a while before you get on campus. However, we do have buses to come pick you up if you do not want to walk.

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.
