5 College Freshman

Parking: The parking at Clemson is good because there is always a place to park. Many people don't get fined and having a car is based on the student's need.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: The parties and other activities at Clemson are safe and Clemson has a policy for underage students which all students are aware of. There is a transit bus to take students to their destinations and back.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: Transportation is excellent at Clemson. There are shuttle buses running all day. The transit runs in the evenning and at night from 6pm to 6am. All students have to do is call and the bus will be there in at least five minutes.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Students get along really good whether they are a Greek or not because students who are not Greeks are friends Greeks. Greeks and non-Greeks have class together and stay in the same dorm so, there is a friendly atmosphere.

5 College Freshman

Parking: Parking is good. Students can allows find somewhere to park there cars whether it's for an hour or four hours. The parking lots are also safe because there is always security.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: The program is difficult, but the payoff should be great. The engineering program at Clemson is well-known and respected. There are many different kinds of engineering you can choose to study, as well as concentrations within some of those categories. The workload is pretty heavy. The facilities are spread out over campus and are in plenty. There are great resources for the engineering students at Clemson.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There are a good bit of people who drink underage and smoke weed. I don't mind too much if people drink underage, but it gets to the point where their immaturity causes them to put themselves in dangerous situations.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The campus is not too strict, but rather I would say reasonable. They do not allow alcohol or guns on campus. The police force is somewhat strict about minor driving offenses, even when new students who don't know the campus roads make honest mistakes.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Okay, Clemson isn't on the same level as Harvard and Yale, obviously. However, as far as public universities go, it is one of the best. The curriculum is challenging, the professors are typically knowledgeable from what I have seen, and the workload is significant. The engineering and agriculture programs are definitely substantial.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Clemson is a college town mainly because a majority of the people in Clemson attend Clemson University. Downtown Clemson is a nice place to go if you want to hang out with your friends and have a nice meal. Personally I recommend Brioso's, our Italian restaurant, they have the best pasta around. There are not many universities nearby, except for Furman University, but that is forty-five minutes away in Greenville. Overall Clemson is a nice place to go, especially if you are not a city person.

4 College Freshman

Parking: The parking at Clemson is not that bad. I am just a freshman and I live next to the stadium which has multiple parking lots that are available for use so there is no shortage of paring. The same goes for the parking lots near the classes and on the other side of campus. So long as you keep looking, you will always find a spot. The only times it will be extremely hard to park are on football game days, but those are only in the fall and on Saturdays so it doesn't affect the class flow that much.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The way the athletic program is run supports sportsmanship on and off the field in both the players and the students/fans. For each football game every student has a chance to receive a ticket and to attend the game. The same goes for all of the other sports, whether the sports are at the varsity, club, or intramural level. As a part of a club sport at Clemson I can personally say that Clemson as a whole supports us and every other sport on campus and that is something that is always nice to have.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I received an out-of-state waiver for tuition based on my SAT scores, which was very helpful and influential in my decision to attend Clemson University. However, I have been disappointed with the lack of any other scholarships available for out-of-state students to apply for. There are many for in-state residents, but as an out-of-state student I would like the chance to compete for more scholarships.

Campus Dining: The dining halls are nothing special, just your average fare for each meal with a deli line, pizza, a salad bar, and several "home style" options. There are some non-dining hall places where you can't use your meal plan but which are pretty decent. The Canteen located in the Union has Chick-fil-A which is very popular. Also, there is a Subway and Papa Johns in the Hendrix student center, also well-liked food options. There is also a Chili's to go next to Harcombe dining hall. Overall, the food options are pretty decent.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus dining is not the best at Clemson, but its nothing to be ashamed of either. There are several bars downtown, which are typical hangout spots on the weekends. Also downtown, there are a few nice sandwich shops including Groucho's Deli, Pot Belly Deli, and the Pita Pit. Clemson has a wonderful selection of coffee shops; Spill the Beans has a wide selection of blended coffees as well as delicious ice cream with your choice of toppings mixed in. Brioso's is also a wonderful italian restaurant, also located downtown.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Clemson University offers a wide variety of majors and boasts top-notch facilities and faculty. All of my professors have been easy to talk to. They have all been very accommodating and seem very interested that their students receive a quality education. Most of my classes are relatively small, enabling the professor to really connect with students on a personal, first-name level. The opportunities to study abroad or intern are endless and extremely easy to discover. Also, the cooperative education program has impressed me with its breadth of scope, large selection of employers, and helpful representatives at Clemson.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I'm in the College of Engineering and Science and my major is Mechanical Engineering. So far, I have been impressed with the level of academic excellence demonstrated by my professors. They have been very accommodating and likable, and always make an effort to get to know students by name. The professors are also extremely knowledgeable and well-respected in their field. One of the professors actually wrote the textbook used for my Statics and Dynamics class. Overall, the Mechanical Engineering faculty is accomplished, knowledgable, and diligent to ensure that their students receive a top-quality education at Clemson.

3 College Freshman

Academics: The professors are usually very willing to help and talk to you about your grades. The workload usually is not too bad and the curriculum is challenging yet not impossible.

3 College Freshman

Academics: The academics at Clemson is very good. Like all schools, some classes are more challenging than others. Some also require less work then others. However, the academics are very good and fairly challenging.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Unless you are hanging out with people using drugs, there is not really a drug scene at Clemson. Yeah, it can be found if you look hard enough but it is not huge. Drinking is more common.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: I received some financial aid. However, I did not receive as much as I thought I would receive.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: LOVE LOVE LOVE. There's so much school spirit, it's what makes us one of the happiest schools in the nation. Saturdays during football season are packed with tailgaters. Footballl is an all day event, especially during an evening game. As far as club sports go, there's a lot of involvement. It's a very physically active student body.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: There are several housing options on campus that range from freshmen dorms, to suite-style rooms and apartments. Older students choose to live in close-by apartments that are off campus simply because it is sometimes cheaper and offers more freedom. In dorms, there are Resident Assistants and Housing staff that address and enforce housing policies. The best and worst options depend on your choice alone. Freshmen are required to stay on campus their first year at Clemson; however, you can choose to live on campus during your later college years. On-campus living is convenient because it is near all of the academic buildings, and depending on the situation, it can come out to be cheaper! Finally, the housing process is rather simple but it is a contract so be sure to know if you want to stay on campus or rather stay off campus after your freshman year!

4 College Junior

Academics: Clemson offers many different academic programs that range from Engineering and Science to Architecture, Education, Nursing, Turfgrass and Sociology. There are many majors that can spark the interests of many. Most professors are polite and are willing to help their students if necessary. The registration process is rather simple, however many agree that registering early will help your chances of getting into the class you want!

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: We have three dining halls, several outside vendors such as Chilis-to-go and Wendy's, and small snack shops such as Einstein Bros that allow students the opportunity to choose where and what they would like to eat. The menus at each dining hall are different and offer varieties of different meals that one would find appetizing. Also, the dining halls support healthy eating with vegan and vegetarian options.

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.
