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.

Academics: As a psychology major at Clemson University, there are many opportunities through the College of Business and Behavioral Science that allow psych majors to gain experience with their interests. Clemson Graduate School also has a few psychology majors for applying Master's and PhD candidates. The workload is rather average for psych majors, however it is less challenging that some other majors at Clemson such as Engineering or Science. Getting to know your psychology professors will help you to gain contacts and network to get jobs, internships, and volunteer work in your interested psychology sector.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Clemson University has an enormous amount of team spirit and we take pride in our athletics! We bleed purple and orange and will always support our fellow Tigers!

2 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Meal plans at Clemson offer zero flexibility, despite the available options they give you. The average cost of one meal is $7 and when you don't eat, you feel like you have thrown away a prepaid meal. These meal plans are ridiculously expensive and I feel pressured to use up my meal plan or else I'd be throwing away $7. In addition, the hours of the dining hall for the different meals of the day are not that flexible with you. The food is mediocre and there's only 2 main dining halls (the third one is so small and far away). There's a food court, but they don't stay up past 10, so you may have to look else where for quick food. I wish Clemson had better dining options.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Although there are a handful of off-campus housing options, they can be quite expensive to handle. It's such a hassle to tour around and compare contracts because you have to weigh the pros and cons for each selection that you make. Money can be the most influential factor in determining whether you get the apartment or not, but you also have to consider what you need. It's better to find a contract that has everything in the package (electricity, Internet, cable, water, etc.) so you don't have to worry about paying separate bills. It's very easy to find a place to live in Clemson, but you got to be on the lookout as early as possible and sign the contract.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Safety is very important on campus, the police show up right away and make sure everyone is okay. There has been no crime on campus so I feel safe whenever I am on campus at night. Plus the bus is always available if you do not wish to walk at night by yourself.

4 College Junior

Majors: I love my program and the people in it. Everyone knows pretty much everyone and is close. I would definitely do it all over again and get more involved with some stuff but I'm happy with where I am at.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: The process of getting into my Art Major was fairly easy. It all depends on your dedication and determination. You don't have to be a great artist to be an Art Major.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I am a Fine Arts Major at Clemson University and I absolutely love being a Clemson Tiger. I've always done well in all my art courses in high school and in my previous university that I transferred out of. Clemson provides for me the challenges I need to grow and improve within my Major. Clemson's art program is filled with talented and skilled professors that understand and are willing to help all their students. Choosing to transfer to Clemson was one of my greatest decisions ever.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Clemson has some really nice off-campus apartments, condos, and cottages. I live at Highpointe, and while it is a little more expensive, the place is very nice. There are some cheaper apartments closer to campus, but some of them are poorly managed and much less appealing. There are many communities of off-campus housing fro students. The University Village, the Reserve, Aspen Heights, Chimney Ridge are all very nice places. The cost can be a bit high at some of these, though. But everything is within 5 miles of campus.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There isn't a huge selection of restaurants, but it is enough to have variety. Cookout is one of the most frequented spots, with good affordable burgers and fries. There are a number of coffee spots for studying or lounging, and then there are many fast food chains. Everything is close and easily accessible, but most things close around 10pm, which is inconvenient. It is affordable though. I would average a meal at $7.

5 College Freshman

Academics: All the teacher are very helpful and are more than willing to go out of their way for you. Classes aren't too hard, but there are plenty of things for you if you can't handle it.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The games are incredible. Everyone is so into them and the atmosphere is intoxicating.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It has a few different sotres, but its the same basic stuff really. It's nice though, don't get me wrong. But the real variety is driving distance.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Clemson is always a ticking time bomb. It's generally pretty quiet despite the hustle and bustle of students, but all it takes is the day before a football game or some sort of celebration on Bowman to get the entire campus going. The typical Clemson student is fairly down-to-earth.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Clemson is laid out in such a way that you never really feel to detached from the heart of the University. It isn't until you get out past the stadium and near Jervey that you start to feel the disconnect. At its center you can find Tillman, Cooper Library, the University Union, and some historic landmarks. The grounds are so well taken care of that, despite the cow path which formed behind Hendrix, they never look worn or tired. It helps with morale, if I'm honest. You can walk out of a rough exam or wake up after a long night with little sleep and see bright grass and flowers and clean sidewalks and feel a little more invigorated than you had.

Facilities: Clemson is a vibrant, proud college town. Bowman field is incredible for socializing during sunny spring days. There are always activities and events going on around campus celebrating everything you could think to celebrate -- cultures, milestones, the school itself. Academics are competitive and improving, and the faculty and students know it, too. There are always initiatives to beautify or modernize the campus, and while students grumble due to interruptions to standard walking paths, the end results are almost always well-received. Clemson is the perfect school for somebody like me.

4 College Senior

Campus Dining: Clemson is still growing the with placed to dine on campus. There is now a Subway, Wendy's, and a Pizza hut. There are many more places to go as well as to big main dining halls on campus.

2 College Senior

Campus Strictness: The police do patrol the campus regularly and send out campus and text alerts in case of emergencies. The authority does crack down on underage drinking but only when necessary, but they are more strict when it comes to illegal drugs. Don't plan parties on any social sites such as Facebook or Twitter saying there will be alcohol there...its just a bad idea because cops will most likely show ups sooner or later.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of restaurants down here in Clemson. They're mostly here because of the school. There are many places you can go to for students discounts such as Taco Bell, Zaxby's, Pita Pitt, Firehouse Subs, Bojangles, etc. There are a lot of places that are trendy but they are good places to eat at.

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.
