Academia Life – Clemson has a "home" feel. Everyone makes you feel like you are their brother or sister and it's so easy to talk to people that you may not know.

CATS System – It's free! It is extremely convenient and always runs on time. You can get all around Clemson, and even get to Anderson and Central.

I actually do not live on campus, but I've heard wonderful things about the community at night. Lots of nightly movies, cookie and break time, etc.

Most of the professors are great at encouraging one to come and talk with them if there are any problems or questions. There are always those few that are very intimidating and hard to talk to. Many of the professors are able and willing to help out with anything!

Just Right – Clemson is a quaint town with lots of college lovers. Anderson University is a few miles down the road. Also, Furman is a short drive away. There is plenty to do in downtown Clemson as well as Anderson and Central. Definitely go exploring if the chance arises.

Running With the Herd – Entering the veterinary college in the Equine Business Management field was easy as a transfer student from Texas. My AS and AA coursework transferred and was applied through the first two years and I am now working on the core subjects as a senior, having completed the junior level during the last two semesters.

Equine Studies – The Veterinary School at Clemson is a treasure trove of experienced professors and teaching assitants; easch one is dedicated to helping the student grow in the field and excel in the subject matter. Books, technological studies, and hands on labs equate to fascinating days of challenges, satisfaction, and ever increasing knowledge.

Southern Gentility Exemplified – The Clemson area emcompasses many "small town, USA" communities. From Greenville to Seneca to Anderson, they may vary in population and geographic size but here in the South...attitude is everything! South Carolinians welcome diversity and capitalize on the rich experiences individuals have to offer. Everyone is welcome and we truly mean it when we say "y'all come back now", that is, if yu ever leave.

Be Careful With Academic Advisors – I'm a Biological Sciences major on the Pre-Med path, but I have found myself taking unnecessary courses that were "recommended" by the academic advisor. I've spoken to many other students who are disappointed that they are missing graduation requirements due to the advice given by their advisors (i.e. advisors said their credits were complete when in reality they were actually missing a few). Many biological sciences majors say there is a heavy course load, but I found the work very manageable especially when completed in several increments.

Work Hard, Play Hard – Clemson students do take academics quite seriously and the overall motto for most is definitely "Work hard, play hard." Since the library is open 24 hours Sunday-Thursday and during certain hours Friday-Saturday, you will always see many students gluing their eyes to books studying for exams, and some even sleep in the library especially during exam week. The most popular majors are engineering, business and biology. Most classes are very large, but sit in the front and engage with the professors and they are always happy to help.

Big School, Small-Town Charm – Clemson is located in a very small town, but that is compromised by the amount of school pride and spirit from the locals. Most attractions such as shopping are located in the nearby towns of Anderson (accessible by bus) and Greenville. There are a few little shops in downtown Clemson, but most of downtown is filled with bars that students flock to from Thursday-Saturday nights. If you're looking for a city school with an active atmosphere, Clemson is definitely not the place. But if you're looking for a big school with a small-town charm, this is for you.

Drinking Is Extremely Popular. While drug use is not unheard of, in fact it is often the topic of a couple of jokes, it's drinking that dominates the on-campus and off-campus scene. There are a lot of bars downtown, but for the cost-minded drinker, there are always off-campus parties going on somewhere. Alcohol policy enforcement is average; you may or may not get busted for underage drinking.

At Clemson, choosing to be a part of Greek Life is like choosing your lifestyle. You don't have to be a part of it, but if you do, you'd better commit several hours each week (or more depending on the time of year) to it specifically. Greek life always has events going on (although they almost always cost money), including philanthropy events, service events, parties, sisterhood/brotherhood events, sporting events, etc. There are a lot of Greek Housing options available, though sometimes it can be a little competitive. Thankfully, the dues each semester are pretty affordable and you gain a bunch of great sisters and brothers for a lifetime. :)

Labs Used Often on Campus – The Clemson University computer labs are pretty good and located in relatively convenient places around campus. Over all, the pros include a fast and reliable internet connection, computers that are decent and always near a printer, and universal access to the Clemson software servers so you can work with whatever major specific programs you need. The cons include dealing with the 1-2 computers in each lab that are non-functional due to various reasons and the fact that the labs are ALWAYS busy with off campus students. Fortunately, the wireless on campus is excellent, so if you have your own computer, then you never really need the labs anyway. Also, If you have a problem with your computer, then you can go to CCIT, the computer support people. They're decent and are pretty efficient at getting through a line of people.

School Helps Plan Out Future – As an entering freshman, the academic advisers have been more than kind to tell all incoming students the opportunities we have in years to come.

Not a Problem – Recently the Clemson police have tried to cut down on underage drinking but as long as you are smart about drinking you won't have any issues.

Do It! When you get the chance, move off campus. The apartment complexes are either cheaper or the same price as on campus housing and are almost all much nicer too. Many have community pools. Definitely better parking in an apartment complex than there would be living on campus also.

Amazing Place to Be – I love this school. From classes to friends to football games, everything has been an awesome experience. If you want a bigger school that doesn't feel huge, Clemson is the place for you. There is always something to do and you can always see someone you know or meet someone knew. Football is insane, there is no other way to describe it. Everyone loves the tigers and shows up on game day decked out in orange. Being from the north I was not prepared for this but it has been one of the most fun things I've done at school so far.

If you bring a car to campus, prepare to get at least one ticket a year. If you leave your car in a 30-minute spot for 31 minutes you will get a ticket immediately. Also parking for students who live on campus is far away from the dorms. Do not attempt to drive on campus when there is a football game, you won't get anywhere.

If you are a smart person and got into the Honors Program expect a challenge in Honors classes. Other classes vary on difficulty depending on the class and professor.

Little to None – Financial aid seems to be impossible to come across and over the past few years Clemson has virtually eliminated ways to get in touch with aid. If you don't beg and plead beyond comprehension then scholarships are your only hope in paying for you education.

From the gym, to the dorms, to the cafeterias and even the Cooper library, the campus is absolutely beautiful, functional and was built with amazing workmanship and it is easy to see that only quality materials and techniques were used when assembling the campus and its various features.

Great Resources, Vague Professors – The resources here at Clemson to help you succeed are impeccable and make it possible for the students here to blossom during their education journey. Sadly, though the professors certainly aren't the worst around, I have found most of them to teach in a very vague and non detailed manner leaving too many open ended ideas and thoughts which can prove very difficult to study. With every class I've had so far, there has always been confusion or misunderstanding about assignments and due dates.

Cat Bus – The Cat Bus runs everywhere on campus. It is free and convenient schedules.

Management Degree – Is not an easy program, but if you put effort on it and attend to class you can be very successful. Not so many papers, but more projects and homeworks. Job opportunities are hard because most employers look for experience when hiring somebody as a manager.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
