5 College Sophomore

Transportation: There is an excellent transit system around Clemson. But the long distance transport is not very good or reliable

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Obviously there is some drug and alcohol use here, but it isn't a focal point of this university, those who choose to do it do but there is no pressure on those who don't. Enforcement of drug policies by the university is strict and usually upheld

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Clemson's Greek life is a great opportunity for all students to engage in networking, volunteer work and socializing. The biggest component is the social expansion that Greek life offers. As a non-Greek the networking and volunteer opportunities aren't readily available however the parties and gatherings are available for all students. Clemson is a great school in regards to break social lines, we're all here to make the best of our college experience and encourage Greeks and non-Greeks to be apart of the college atmosphere. SAE and Kappa Alpha Psi are well known fraternities around campus for parties.

Scholarships: As a junior I have dealt with many semesters searching for financial aid. My fall semester sophomore year financial aid actually lost my file! However, they were very lenient and allowed me to stay on campus considering their faults and my situation. I'm a 2.75-3.0 students so I don't qualify for a lot of scholarships. If your're an average student don't plan on Clemson helping you much with money. Private scholarships, federal loans, and personal family assistance are the main resources for average students.

4 College Junior

Weather: Overall the weather is very moderate. It is not too cold and not too hot. It can get quite humid and rainy, which causes a lot of bad hair days. However only expect the most rain and humidity during the mid-fall and mid-spring range.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Having an extensive health record, I have chosen other health establishments before the school health center. My prolonged qt syndrome, gall stones and turrets are always causing me to need medical help. Redfern the school health center usually is only able to diagnose the problem (that I'm already of aware of) then proceed to send me elsewhere for better treatment. Therefore, I go directly to other institutions of medicine to get help.

Off-Campus Housing: Living off campus requires students to take care of extra expenses such as gas and parking decals. Although these extraneous expenses arise, monthly cost of off campus living can be potentially cheaper than on campus. Depending of living arrangements such as the number of roommates, and desired amenities; apartment costs can be considerably cheaper than Clemson's campus housing costs. Another pro of living off campus, is the "home away from home" feeling that a dorm cannot give students. It's nice to enjoy a larger space with your roommates. Some apartments even allow students to keep animals, which from personal experience has been the most rewarding aspect of living off campus. Living off campus requires better time management because drives to campus can sometimes take 20 minutes even if 3 miles away. Off campus students must prepare their days better because books, and other materials are a simple walk away. After all things considered I would suggest living off campus because the flexibility with pets, amenities, and the homey feeling really enhance the college living experience.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Clemson is a southern school, which means football is a big thing here, everyone comes together and is like a big family that is cheering for their Tigers, no matter what! Every Friday, lots of students wear their orange to show support for our Tigers. It is a big deal!

5 College Junior

Transportation: Clemson offers Catbus, which can pick you up from your apartment, campus, etc. and take you to wherever you need to go, for free. It is free to everyone and goes to Anderson, Seneca, etc.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I always feel safe walking around Clemson. They have police that are readily available, and they have emergency buttons that are lit up and all over campus, so if I ever feel unsafe, I can push it and know that help is coming. That isn't to say you can be stupid. Lock your doors at night, and walk around in a group when possible at night time. Clemson tries its absolute hardest to keep us safe; however, we need to be smart too

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Our campus is beautiful, with plenty of places to hang out. Bowman field, the Botanical Gardens, and Hendrix student center are just a few of the many places Clemson has for students to come and have fun. We also have downtown, which is great to go and get a bite to eat, or pick up another Clemson t-shirt! Fike is our gym, and it really is beautiful. The only downside is the Union, which needs renovation, however in the next couple of years they plan on tearing it down and making a whole new student center. In addition, construction here is super fast, so the new facility would be up quickly!

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I'm in the College of Health, Education, and Human development and I've been impressed by all the opportunities they've offered. I am a Special Education major and the program is great and very well known

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are a ton of places to live off campus. Most are by campus and there's a bus line that goes around the farther away places and comes straight to campus.

4 College Freshman

Majors: It's not very hard to get into most majors. Changing majors is also easy.

5 College Senior

Athletics: Clemson is a huge football school! We have one of the best environments on game day. All of the other varsity sports are pretty exciting as well. We have a wide variety of intramural and club sports available for students who don't quite have what it takes to play varsity!

Diversity: Clemson University does a pretty good job promoting acceptance of difference cultures, political beliefs, religions, economic backgrounds and sexual orientation. The university frequently puts on seminars and programs to promote awareness about different culture groups. However, most people here are upper/middle class whites. Minorities aren't represented well within the student body.

Parking: Parking on campus is pretty difficult because of the size of campus. It's a pretty good hike from the commuter lots to class, anywhere from seven minutes to twenty five minutes depending on how quick you walk. Parking services is your worst enemy, they're always out patrolling looking to issue parking citations. However, parking has improved in the three years I've been here because commuters no longer have to walk all the way from kite hill!

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel very safe at Clemson. You here very little about any theft. The students themselves are very trustworthy people. The theft that does happen is not from the students, but from people visiting the campus for football games or other activities.

4 College Freshman

Computers: An ethernet cord is a must for dorm life! The wireless internet connection in some of the dorms is only okay. The library is usually pretty crowded durring the day and sometimes it is hard to find a seat.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Clemson students make up a very large portion of the fan base. Everyone goes to the football games and everyone gets really involved in cheering on the tigers.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is a huge part of Clemson, but they definitely don't make you feel awkward if you aren't a part of one. To me, Clemson has a perfectly balanced Greek life.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Clemson is a town with a lot to offer. Downtown is located within walking distance of the school, and has many different shops and restaurants. Natural parks are also not too far away, and the walking trails and waterfalls are gorgeous.

5 Recent Alumnus

Computers: Printers and computer all across campus. Mostly up to date as you'd expect a college's computers to be. Network is superb ( direct fiber connection to a major hub ) Wi-fi is available anywhere on campus.

4 Recent Alumnus

Majors: Did a Co-op (cooperative education program similar to internship). Clemson makes it very easy for its engineering students to secure interviews with several companies for co-op opportunities.

4 Recent Alumnus

Majors: It's a good major. Most teachers are knowledgeable about their areas and are happy to help students.

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.
