3 College Sophomore

Facilities: Football is king at Clemson. The Fall is always fun with the tailgating and games. Everyone really gets into it. Even if you aren't a football fan when you get here, you will be by the end of your first game. Fraternities and Sororities are big on campus, but there's no need to join them if you don't want to. Sometimes it does feel like you are trapped in this town though. There's not much to do in Clemson, so once football season is over it can get pretty boring. The CAT bus is really convenient for student who don't want to bring there car to school.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: Clemson is a well-known international university. On top of reaching out to students across the world, we have different clubs and tons of speeches, lectures, and opportunities to broaden our horizons and thoughts on cultures and races different than our own. Just walk around campus for a day... We have it all!

Weather: weather is mild. Can get cold for a few days in the winter but nothing bad. In the fall it is still hot and humid. Overall it is great as you don't need to worry too much about snow.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: most people are friendly and are there to get a great education. There is a lot to do and its easy to meet people. You will always have the rednecks and the divas in the mix, but it is a great mix of the academic, athletic and social.

5 College Junior

Computers: The computers at Clemson are great. There are computers in the library as well as numerous computer labs all over campus. You can print about 500 black/white pages for free per semester. It is nice to have your own printer in the event you don't want to go on campus to print. But you can print from anywhere on campus, including personal computer, and then swipe your card in the library or computer labs and print anywhere.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It is great to live on campus because you are in the middle of everything and the atmosphere is great. The dorms are pretty old, and they show it, but they are usable and it is an experience.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Clemson Football is a HUGE deal. The entire first semester pretty much revolves around it. All of Saturday is dedicated to Clemson Football games, especially when they are at home. You can see people tailgating since the morning! This is a part of the reason why I chose Clemson, the atmosphere is just so exciting! There's nowhere else that I'd rather be on a fall Saturday than in Tiger Town.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Clemson offers SI (supplemental instruction) sessions, which are super helpful. Classes that are known to be especially challenging will have an SI leader who attends class and takes notes. The leader will have 2-3 sessions a week to review material from class and answer any questions that the students may have. All of them also have test reviews, where they administer a practice test and go over the answers in depth to insure that every student feels more confident walking into the exam. Studies have shown that students who attend SI sessions see an improvement in their exam grades.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I'm an accounting major, and I've been extremely satisfied with my education so far. I have been promised a challenging course load, and I have received just that. The classes I've taken, and am taking, are a mix of easy and difficult. However, every class is thought-provoking. I can't wait to see what classes are offered to me in the next few semesters!

2 College Freshman

Nightlife: Have to travel to next town to view a movie or the sorts.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: This is my first University program and it is very close knit. I enjoy the feeling of being welcome and have not met a discouraging face. The academic programs are rigorous and challenging but with good guidance from the professors so it's not too difficult. I enjoy living off campus-but I do not feel out of touch because I am still close.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: It depends on who you surround yourself with, I have had minimal experience, but I keep busy so I cannot accurately describe this.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel secure as I walk around campus-although the parking lots seem isolated many Emergency Buttons are available. I have never felt threatened or the urge to press them but I assume that they work well with timely responses.

4 College Student

Computers: we were required to purchase a particular computer at a very reasonable cost. All necessary software etc was loaded onto the system before it reached me. I have not encountered any problems with the network and wi-fi is not only available on campus but all throughout the town.

4 College Student

Transportation: There are a ton of convienences within walking distance and our CAT bus runs all over the area including off campus university housing. This makes everyday transportation easy. Most of the time my car stays parked all week. However, I do need my car to go home since it is 5 hours away but I have found others to ride share. Even though I use my car I have been able to recoup some travel expenses by dropping others off in towns along my route home.

3 College Student

Nightlife: There are plenty of activities available for all ages, from on campus activities to those held off campus, as well as those associated with fraternities.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greek life is great here. There are a lot of activities they do and they are a heavy influence on the campus. I would definitely recommend joining though, especially as a girl, because it is a huge help with making friends. I didn't join a sorority and it has definitely been a struggle to fit in here.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I have an outstanding adviser here which makes everything a lot easier than I would have expected. I'm going into marketing and everything has been almost effortless. They place you in a business 101 class during your first year and from there you choose what major you want. Marketing is a little harder to get into than the others so you do have to maintain that 3.0 but overall, the business program here knows what they're doing.

5 College Freshman

Majors: My program is absolutely PHENOMENAL here at Clemson! I am in the Animal Science program, studying my Pre-veterinary course work. I have worked with a variety of animals already, and I am only a Freshman. The staff involved are great, too, and have your best interests in mind, always. There are tons of jobs on the farms here, and internships abound for animal science majors.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Well...I don't really look at my school for the people, other than the fact that the diversity is great, and you can find people to be friends with whether you're into the "party scene" or if you're simply looking to hang out and make friends. I love the people I meet, and there is no generalization to be made.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The team support, and the enthusiasm of sports here is great. There is nothing like attending a Clemson University football game in Death Valley! The gym, Fike, is also fantastic for those who participate in sports, for the facility is overflowing with training and workout equipment. Also, availability and price of tickets is phenomenal.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Though off campus choices are good, parking is terrible. The choices, however, are fantastic, and there are some decent prices, much better than the cost of living on campus

4 College Sophomore

Weather: Weather is almost always gorgeous with few rainy days. The campus is beautiful in the fall, spring, and summer.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There are some extremely great dorms at Clemson (i.e. Clemson House, Stadium Suites-->where you can have your own bathroom) and there are also very gross dorms. Usually the boys get the grossest ones. There isn't much middle ground - either the dorm is nice or the dorm is crappy.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Clemson sends out emails every so often about people being arrested for drug related charges. If people are doing drugs at Clemson, however few, they are caught and reprimanded for these actions.

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.
