Nightlife: Nightlife is GRUESOME. Truthfully, if you are not in a frat you may find yourself drinking alone in Johnstone

Weather: Weather doesn't affect classes a whole lot. Since it is South Carolina, were it to snow a lot, everything would probably close. However, rain and chilliness aren't too bad, and even the heat is bearable because of the beautiful tree-filled campus.

Majors: I LOVE my program! The Animal and Veterinary Science department is incredibly helpful to keep you on track for success. In the third week of school, as a Freshman, I was already out at the farms, working with the cows, horses, chickens, pigs, and sheep that the University has for the Animal and Agriculture majors. The opportunities for hands-on experience isn't limited to classes, either. You can join clubs that work specifically with chickens or cows, or you could join the equestrian team. Additionally, there are Creative Inquiry and Internship opportunities galore, if you're looking for additional experience. I came to Clemson because of this program, and I have not been disappointed.

Majors: Getting into my program was not the hard part about getting into this school, for Animal and Veterinary Science isn't as big as most other majors. But the process was fantastic! They mainly look for a combination of good grades and well-rounded experiences. The people you're surrounded with are all involved as well, and you can learn from them. Once you're in, you choose whether you want to concentrate on a Pre-veterinary, Equine Business, or Animal Agriculture. The decision routes your class plans for the rest of your time at Clemson, and the advisers are incredibly good at helping you figure out the paths you should take. There are so many opportunities to take! If you're interested in the animal field, you need to be really certain, however, because you get thrown in right away. By right away, I mean in the third week of school, you're out on the farms working with animals.

Computers: There's a lot of them and for any program that you need for a class you can find at least 1 lab that has it uploaded. That being said, sometimes you really have to search to find that lab

Academics: Academics are top notch at Clemson. There's a reason a Clemson degree is valued as high as it is, especially in engineering.

Parking: It's a small campus with a lot of students so parking can be pretty rough sometimes. But they have free buses and stuff so it isn't hard to get around. Just hard to park

Academics: It's pretty awesome because Clemson has a lot of money and time in the sciences. It feels kind of like being a king on campus sometimes. I very very nerdy king. The only downside is that, there are a lot of science majors and sometimes not enough advisors to take care of them all so it kind of forces you to learn how to take care of yourself.

Off-Campus Housing: There are options for everyone. Some with cheap rent, some come furnished, some are private and require gate pass, others are reasonable priced and have amazing amenities. (pool, clubhouse, gameroom, garages, pets allowed, etc.) Most either have a shuttle or are in route with the CatBus so there are alternatives for driving. Easy to find as they are well advertised on campus and the internet.

Campus Strictness: Clemson is really understanding of drinking, police care more about the safety of everyone then getting people in trouble. As long as you are not being extremely obnoxious and disrespectful and have a DD, it seems pretty hard to get into any serious trouble. Academic honesty is pretty highly enforced and can result in getting sent to the Dean which generally doesn't end favorable but Clemson is really good about being fair in any of their policies.

Campus Housing: Campus housing has its cons, but is overall a good experience. Anything in the horseshoe is decent, clemson house is above average, and the honors dorm is amazing. shoeboxes and johnstone are best to be avoided. social atmosphere is pretty great no matter where you are. parking near dorms are not convenient but location to classes generally are if you choose to live close to your college within Clemson University. Housing process is pretty easy and they are really helpful if you need anything or have questions

Campus Strictness: The biggest issue affecting academia at Clemson right now is the parking in my opinion. Of course, only a certain number of students can live on campus. That leaves a tremendous amount of other students that are forced to live off campus. If you are one of the many that must drive to campus, be prepared to arrive about 30-40 minutes (or more) early to campus. It is a war zone trying to find parking on campus, and it's not getting any better! Clemson is expanding it's horizon by building beautiful, new facilities, but with that the parking situation is increasingly worse. Parking situations MUST be addressed by Clemson University, or else the students will continue to suffer a constant, everyday parking battle.

Campus Housing: The best housing is allotted for honors students and ROTC students, I believe. Compared to other campus housing I've seen, Clemson's can be quite good. The horse-shoe dorms are some of the nicer ones, but some of the buildings are only sorority living. There are other dorms, like the shoeboxes and Johnstone, that are quite poor living conditions as far as newness, however they are closest to the football stadium and the largest cafeteria on campus. Many students who follow football find that the shoeboxes are the best option for gamedays.

Computers: Computers are fairly accessible at Clemson. The only place I've found it hard to find a computer is in the library at the busiest hours of the day (middle of the day). There are usually not huge lines for printing off data, but be sure to do it in advance- there are often issues with the large printers and sometimes it takes a while for word to get around to CCIT to come fix them. The computers themselves always work smoothly, and the network reliability and speed is quite confident.

Health & Safety: I've always felt quite comfortable on Clemson's campus. The school has blue light telephone stations that are supposed to be close enough that you can always see the next telephone from the other. This is so that if anyone was to be chased then they could run from telephone to telephone to contact help. Our campus also provides a shuttle at night for students who live on campus that must park their cars farther from housing buildings.

3 College Junior

Computers: The computer labs at Clemson are not as crowded like other campuses because Clemson has so many labs that are set up around campus which makes it easy for students without personal computers to be able to grab a computer during crunch time and wireless connection on campus is becoming more dependable and stronger every day because of the hard working team at CCIT.

Local Atmosphere: Clemson is a small town but it is large enough for students to interact with one another and to share common wealth with Anderson University, Tri-County Tech, and Greenville Tech, whom are all neighboring schools with in an hour of each other and or maybe 15 - 20 mins.

3 College Junior

Facilities: My school's co-op program has allowed me to travel to see how well other schools, facilities, and businesses communicate with one another and to share experiences in the real world and what to look for after graduation and give in site and ideals how i can make a difference.

3 College Junior

Facilities: Student life on campus is like being at home plenty of things to do and people to communicate with and resources to gather information.

4 College Junior

Academics: Clemson is the best school in the state. The Finance program is very underrated, as it is overshadowed by the College of Engineering.

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.
