3 College Freshman

Weather: Much better weather than the North but still need a sweatshirt or jacket for the winter. Gets to be around 30-40 in the winter.

1 College Freshman

Parking: The parking on campus sucks. They give tickets for every little thing and if you live on campus you can't even park in front of your building not even on the weekend.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Clemson University sits right beside downtown Clemson, which has a lot of restaurants with great sports atmospheres and discounts for college students. The weather is always beautiful. In the fall and spring, everyone is outside being active, and during the winter people go to Fike (basically the Clemson YMCA) to keep active. And the football games are incredible. There is nothing like standing on the hill as the team storms down past Howard's Rock. Clemson University is truly God's Country.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: For on campus housing, the campus police patrol campus and each dorm at least twice a week. If you are giving them reason to come into your room and search they will, but they are really chill otherwise. If someone drinks too much and is in danger, Clemson has a policy that puts health before punishment. So if you call in to get help for your friend, you will be covered by the alcohol amnesty policy. The campus is always extremely lively; everyone hangs out and plays sports on Bowman field. Such a great school.

4 College Junior

Weather: Wonderful, warm sunny days all year round. Mild winters.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The great thing about Clemson is that there are so many options for off campus housing, all within close proximity of the campus. Price ranges from really inexpensive (around $200 month) to fairly expensive (up to $600 a month) but since there are so many around, people always find something that fits within their ideals. Everything is very close to grocery stores, and parking will depend on the complex. But since Clemson is very much a college town, all of the housing available is pretty much geared towards students.

4 College Junior

Academics: There are variety of different places to study. Typically, you will find many people in the library, but students also choose to study in the Hendrix student center or the Academic Success Center. There are also multiple study rooms open in the the specific dorm rooms. The student union is another option for many students. In the area, there are plethora of coffee shops available for students to study as well.

4 College Junior

Academics: I am in the Food Science program here, as part of the College of Agriculture, Forestry, and Life Sciences. The major is very much based around a pretty heavy science curriculum, so you will cover all of the basic sciences like biology, organic chemistry, human anatomy, biochemistry and etc. As far as the professors inside the department, they are all very friendly and approachable. Generally, the entire campus here has a very welcoming vibe.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: We have Tiger Transit which will pick you up from anywhere on campus between 6pm and 6 am, and the CAT bus which has designated routes that take you off campus during the day.

Local Atmosphere: Atmosphere on campus is incredible, but downtown is very small and you need a car to get to a lot of places.

4 College Senior

Transportation: The cat bus system is very good for getting to class and campus in general but as far as using it as your main mode of transportation goes, I wouldn't recommend it. The busses are often crowded and the routes can get lengthy depending on you starting point and destination.

College Senior

Campus Housing: I never lived on campus while at Clemson. I transferred here as a junior and have always live in an apartment or rented a house.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: The public transportation is very helpful. The Catbus is always running throughout the day and Tiger Transit is running at night. Catbus is able to take you off campus, but Tiger Transit stays on campus.

3 College Senior

Computers: The computer situation at clemson is a mixed bag. You can usually find a computer in a lab somewhere on campus but as far as being able to complete university business on with the university via the web goes, thats a pain.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: If alcohol or drugs are found in your room, then they are confiscated or disposed of. The students are then assigned a date to meet with the committee of standards and ethics.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Clemson is a fantastic university and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. The only problem is it doesn't have a lot for some students. For me personally as a Psych major, I am very limited with what emphasis I want to go in and what options I have for graduate school at Clemson. A lot of majors here are also closed which makes them very difficult to get into. This is frustrating for a lot of students and limits some people's options.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I hold high standards for myself but there is a great amount of faculty at my disposal and always willing to help. I eventually want to study abroad, shadow, and/or find an internship and our advisors are always more than willing to help.

College Freshman

Majors: I plan to search for an internship or co-op experience so that I may shadow a person who has the job I desire. I hope to get to know the range of my jobs and the every day routine and to be sure it is a good fit for me.

3 College Freshman

Majors: I am in Life Sciences. It is a really difficult section. I am majoring in Biological Sciences and I average between 15 and 17 credit hours a semester. I have some of the most demanding and work time consuming professors but they just try to do what is best for the students. I hope they will send me in the right direction so that I will be able to get into medical school.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The police are very strict about the parking policies. The Residential Assistants are also pretty strict about the hall policies such as having illegal substances in the rooms and the noise levels. Overall this campus is very structured.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I got a substantial amount of financial aid to go toward my schooling. It wasn't enough to cover all of my dues though. I still had to apply for student loans to cover some of my tuition. It was a long process and took a lot of paper work.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Since the campus is built on a mountainous terrain, when it rains, the water puddles up in areas really bad. But on the bright side, there are drain areas for the water to go. Also, when it rains, it isn't just a quick shower, it rains for days at a time. If you decide to go to Clemson, you better buy a rain jacket and rain boots!

2 College Freshman

Parking: The parking is pretty far away from the residential dorms. Sometimes there is not enough parking for everyone to be able to have a spot. On football game days, every one has to move their car to a field that is tremendously far away from the dorms in order to have parking for the tail gate people. If you are a commuter, it is even worse because you have to arrive on campus early enough to actually get a spot, then you have to walk a far distance in order to get to the buildings that have the student's classes in them. Some of the building are really far away from the parking lot and would take over 30 minutes just to walk that distance.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The cost of eating off campus in the down town area is a little expensive. Even though they do advertise discounts to college students, it is still too prices for a college student like me to eat at those places once a week.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I never felt unsafe on campus and security /police are always patrolling campus. There are very few tragic events that happen on campus that threaten the life of students.

Overall ExperienceWhat's 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.
