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.

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: Many restaurants around Clemson, and even some in Anderson, will take TigerStripe, your school "debit card." Cost is reasonable, many restaurants are within walking distance of campus (downtown) and others are not a far drive at all. I would definitely check out Sardie's (on Hwy 93 across from Bi-lo.)

Guys & Girls: Students at Clemson have many different styles, but they all have at least one commonality - They LOVE Clemson!! Students at Clemson share and express a love for the university and community that is very special and unlike many other schools. Males and females alike enjoy tailgating for the football games, going to other sporting events, participating in clubs, intramural sports, Greek life, as well as organizations pertaining to their particular major.

Drug Safety: In my opinion, there should be a no tobacco policy

Guys & Girls: Everyone makes this campus feel like a large family! The guys always look spiffy on game day with their bow ties. Lots of the guys cannot be stereotyped, but we have frat boys, farm boys, and country boys. The social life is always booming. The girls are classic southern belles as well as northern beauties. Everyone dresses up on game day and shares the love!

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: I don't really use it that much but for who uses it, I've been told it's useful.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Most go to out of state students. For a rather expensive college, they give out little financial aid.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It's decent and well kept but outdated. Many parts of on campus housing could be redone. After seeing where my siblings stay on campus at other colleges, it makes me jealous their conditions are much nicer.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Clemson has an abundance of off campus living arrangements, but it definitely depends on where you can get an apartment. You'll most likely have to meet someone new to fill in that last room, or you might not have a washer and dryer. The prices range from $300-$500 a month, depending on the utilities. That price doesn't include the cost of groceries, food, gas money, or a commuter decal. In my opinion, the positives of living off campus far exceeds the few drawbacks. No worries, though! Clemson has laundry-mats, CAT buses, (public transportation to and from campus and around the Clemson/Anderson area), and tons of places to eat and have fun. There is always the very rare occasion you can't find a parking spot. You might have to walk a little bit farther to class on certain days, but there's always somewhere for a commuter to park without getting ticketed. Clemson is a safe, family-oriented place as it is. Safety isn't an issue. My only suggestion is get to class early on Mondays... That's usually when commuter parking is at its worst!

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Varsity sports at Clemson are outstanding. The campus is supportive of not just football, but all varsity sports. Our recreation building, Fike, offers tons of accommodations in addition to our workout equipment such as personal trainers, a public gym, yoga and Zumba classes, and our own indoor aquatic center. Intramurals are pretty big and easy to become involved in. We have an abundance of clubs and activities to become a part of such as Central Spirit and Collegiate IPTAY to get benefits for varsity athletic events. Every Friday is Solid Orange Friday to show that we support our Tigers. School spirit is way above average and our Athletic Department is very approachable when it comes to getting more information on our Varsity Athletics.

Diversity: Clemson is very diverse with students from all over the world.

Nightlife: There is always something to do at night in Clemson. Whether you are of age to drink or not.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Clemson is a very safe school. The university has put a great deal of time and money in recent years into improving the campus safety and security protocols and procedures. I am perfectly comfortable walking around campus alone at night. The university also often asks the student body what they can do to make improvements. The police and campus security are all super nice and understanding, unless they get you on a speeding ticket.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: The campus has a very good academic and a social program. It's like a big family!! The police are strict but there to help you at any time.

5 College Junior

Computers: There's always someonethere to help you and I've never had any problems.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: We have pretty good options on campus like Einstein's bagels, Papa John's, Subway, Chili's, and an ice cream shop. We also have Schilletter dining hall and Harcombe dining hall which are okay, nothing special.

2 College Sophomore

Diversity: Well, if you walk on campus at Clemson you're probably going to see a lot of White people. We're not a very diverse campus as far as having different ethnic groups or cultures. It doesn't mean that we're racist or anything, I believe we're trying to diversify as we get better academically.

Guys & Girls: Most of the guys here are pretty cute if you're in to the southern boy type. The guys usually wear brands like Polo or Southern Tide. Lilly Pulitzer and jack rogers are must-haves if you're going to join a sorority. Also get your nike shorts ready, because most days that's what girls wear paired with an oversized t-shirt.

Academics: I'm pretty disappointed with the rigor of the academics here. I don't feel challenged in my courses as a Psychology major. Internships and research opportunities are pretty limited unless you're an engineering or agriculture major. As long as you go to class, you pretty much don't have to do much else. Most professors curve test grades or drop the lowest grade.

Scholarships: Financial aid is so hard to get. If you're out of state you really have a very small chance of getting anything. If you're a transfer student, you really shouldn't plan to receive anything, you're not even eligible until after you spend a semester paying full tuition.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: While drug use, specifically alcohol use tends to be moderately high at Clemson, the university does a great job at getting a handle on it. All freshmen go through extensive alcohol and drug safety classes and discussions. Clemson LIVE also has university sponsored events almost every weekend to provide non-alcohol related activities for students that may not have plans.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Clemson, unlike any other school I considered, has a small college feel within a large university. There's no pressure to rush or get involved in the party scene. Everyone gets involved with something, and very few people are involved with nothing. There's something for everyone - from religious organizations to intramural sports to clubs for just about every interest. There's always something fun and safe to do.

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.
