3 College Sophomore

Parking: A car is not necessary, but the parking is kind of a pain and parking services gives out a lot of tickets.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: It is friendly and geared towards college students. Southern Hospitality never fails.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The town of Clemson is a vibrant place to be. It is in a great location, right outside of Greenville, and not too far from Altanta. The scenery is stunning, with the lake and the mountains. There is so much to do!

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are many options for varieties of food and price ranges.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: It can be really hot in August and September, but the winters are nice and mild.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Some dorms are old, but clean. Newer dorms at Lightsey are big and nice.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Clemson police are always around. It is a very safe community.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: There are a great number of choices to join or to watch.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Our school is always getting renovated to keep the facilities modern and appealing to students interest. We also have a lot of study resources to go to. We bring food chains onto campus as well so in addition to cafeteria food we have chains such as Chick-fil-a.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: My school is a very greek campus. Coming from the north I was unsure about sororities but at Clemson I feel it is essential to join a sorority. I am an education major and we are required to student teach senior year at local schools to get more experience before graduating. Our school is also big on promoting study abroad for all students.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Clemson is a college town. There are grocery stores such as Walmart and Target about 15 minutes away. The main place to go in Clemson is downtown on Main Street. There are plenty of restaurants from Italian to sushi.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on Clemson campus. We rarely have a safety problem but you should always be prepared for anything. We have a number of emergency policies. The only real threat on campus is the skunks so watch for them at night

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: You Feel Welcome – Clemson truly is a college town. The atmosphere makes you apart of one large family. Their aren't too many locals since it is primarily a college town, but when you do run into them, they sure are charming. Clemson is surely a happy place.

Academics: Top 25 Education – Clemson is a widely accredited university. It's ranked in the top 25 public national universities by the US News and World Report. Clemson really tries its best to help its students succeed in the career field and be ready to take on the rest of their life.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: The small town atmosphere and the beautiful scenery make Clemson a great school to come to. When it's fall, Clemson becomes amazing to be around. Sure, we have our bad weather days, but who doesn't? All I can say, is it's better than downtown Columbia.

Academics: Somewhat Indifferent – Being a psychology major at a primarily engineering school is hard to say. Clemson doesn't offer too much with CBBS majors. Sure, they help with academics and mentoring programs, but when it comes to getting internships and experience for going into counseling or medical fields, Clemson just doesn't have much to offer. This is not Clemson's fault. I believe it simply has to do with the area in which Clemson's located.

Computers: I don't have much experience with on campus computers simply because most students bring their own computers to school.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: It's There but It's Not Dominating the Campus. Greek life at Clemson is, I feel, respected compared to other universities. Most universities have a Greek life that's all about partying or having a good time. At Clemson, the Greek life have other objectives and they don't judge you any differently if you wish not to participate.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Love It – I absolutely LOVE it here. At first I was terrified of the culture shock coming from the north, but I've adjusted really well. The people here are all so sweet and helpful. Academics are top-notch and take priority, but that doesn't mean that you can't have fun. There are opportunities to go to parties if you want, and there are chances to stay at home and hang out with friends. The football games are really out of this world and one of the best experiences you will ever have.

Health & Safety: Totally Safe – I have never felt unsafe on Clemson's Campus. Although the camps is fairly large and open to the community, there has never been an incident that made me feel in danger. At night, TigerTransit can always pick you up if you feel unsafe (or if you just don't want to walk).

5 College Freshman

Majors: Clemson provides a top notch education in architecture. Architecture majors are some of the smartest students on campus, so if you get into the program Clemson will help you succeed.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Can't Wait for Football! Clemson football is definitely a one of a kind experience! I've become friends with many of the athletes and they are all very personable and intelligent, not to mention talented! Clemson is also known for its awesome baseball team. Its always a treat to grab some snacks and watch them play in the springtime.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Every class I have taken has had a very diverse group of students and teachers involved in the learning process. There are many churches affiliated with Clemson University as well as the surrounding areas around campus that provide a place for every student to fit in.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Never Fear! Most of the girls keep their doors unlocked on the hall and none of us have ever had a problem with things being stolen. On my walk back to my dorm during the late hours in the night, I find police cars parked all over campus and street lights all around me that make the walk less scary. People are very friendly and open around campus, so I feel quite safe making new friends and living with peers.

3 College Junior

Weather: either blazing hot, freezing cold, or raining. some days are nice

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.
