5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is very prominent and everyone should at least consider it. It is a great way to make friends, especially if you are out of state!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's a Family – It is just so high energy all the time! The games are unbelievable and everyone comes with something in common, that they love Clemson, so there is an automatic unification. They say over and over that it's the Clemson family and it really feels like it. Classes can be hard, but the help is there if you put in a little effort. They want you to succeed, mostly because it makes the University look better, but no matter motive the resources are there.

Nightlife: There are plenty of bars downtown for 21+. Frat parties are the most popular for freshman girls. Beyond freshman year there's more of a switch to house parties. Transportation is rough, unless you have a car or a friend with one, then your kind of our of luck. There are also Clemson Live events on campus which give away free stuff and can be fun. There is also a movie theatre that shows movies in between theaters and dvd release and a couple pretty big concerts a year.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: Cat Bus and Tiger Transit – To get around we have the cat bus that can take people to off campus housing, stores, and downtown. There are also buses for around campus but walking or riding a bike/ longboard are better for that. At night tiger transit is a great way to get around campus and to your car. Like I said though it's definitely a walking campus. Getting to the Airport is another story.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: Humid but Mild – Summer classes are a little rough, but during the school year the weather is usually nice. The winters don't get too cold, don't expect any snow days. The campus is almost always green. Bring rain boat though!

3 College Junior

Parking: Plenty of Spots but Far Away – There are always spaces open but it is difficult to find a spot anywhere close. It takes around five to ten minutes to walk from a spot to the campus edge.

4 College Junior

Facilities: Great Friends in a Great Place – Since Clemson is not near much, students are always around. Downtown is always buzzing and Bowman Field is full of fun. Fike gym has tons of equipment and classes. There is always something to do with fun people.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Easy, Affordable, and Convenient for All – There are myriad options and many landlords will bargain and haggle with students. They are all as convenient as students want whether they want to be near school, near the grocery, or any place they prefer. Security is great in most places and easily accessible. Parking is easy in some places where students like to mingle and parking is restricted for guests in other places where students prefer to have less visitors.

4 College Junior

Majors: The public health program is prett hard to get into. You have to have atleast a 3.0 and maintain atleast a 3.0 while in the program. If your grades are not too good, you could go in undecided and then get your grades up and get into a major that requires a 3.0

4 College Junior

Facilities: Very Home-Y Feeling – Clemson is set in a small rural town with beautiful countryside. The atmosphere on campus is very close-knit and positive. There are numerous activities to be involved in and the academic programs are first-rate.

4 College Junior

Majors: Civil Engineering Program – I really enjoy civil engineering and I would do it again. The professors are very helpful and the classes are challenging and complete. You learn a lot from them. My career goals are to graduate with a bachelor's and then go back for a master's. I have little concern for finding a job.

4 College Junior

Majors: Engineering Interships – My internship was very helpful and it gave me a good idea of real world conditions. I would recommend that anyone try to find one. The pay was very good ($15 per hour) and the time commitment was just like a regular job. My responsibility level was based on my experience level so it wasn't much. Overall, very satisfied.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The dining halls on campus are pretty good. The only problem is that they tend to serve the same thing every day. However, the dining halls to have some nights where there are themes like carnival food or baseball food.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: The computer labs are good. If you have to print, though, it will cost.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Personally, I don't believe the campus is very strict. Any violence that occurs is quickly handled and students are notified about any campus threats immeadiately.

4 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: Clemson offers a lot of programs and they have good facilities to help you.

5 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: Grrek Life Is Great – I became a member of a fraternity and it was a lot of help meeting new people and hanging out at the library and finding out which classes are good to take.

2 College Junior

Drug Safety: We Have Police? I dont really know much about the Drug Safety enforcements, but i know we have an excellent police force at work

3 College Junior

Nightlife: Fake Ids Are Easy to Come by – Its rather easy to get into bars and such with a fake ID if youre under 21

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: So Much to Do for a Country Town – All thought Clemson is deep in the country, the on campus activities can really keep you busy. The have man Christian clubs that I am involved in, as well as a drum circle. The students are very friendly with each other. Clemson's sport are outstanding, especially football.

5 College Sophomore

Transportation: Cat Bus Is Great – The Cat bus runs through campus all day. It is a great way to get around campus. Also, there is a free shuttle service that will pick you up at any time of day. This option is great, especially late at night. Clemson's transportation options are fantastic

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Very Safe – Clemson is a very safe place to be. The fact that the university is in a pure college town really helps. Unlike other colleges in big cities, most of the people on campus are students. With the strong academic standard at Clemson, most of the students are very focused on school and cause little trouble.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: There is no place I'd rather be on a fall saturday than Clemson, SC. On this day, fans from all around the state come to support their Tigers at Death Valley. Clemson also has an impressive athletic center and many Christian organizations that are truly a blessing to me.

5 College Senior

Athletics: At Clemson sports are a very big deal. There is always a great atmosphere on game day weekend with tons of school spirit. The athletic facilities for the college sports are top notch. The facilities for students are nice as well. They offer quite the variety of classes from Zumba to cycling.

5 College Senior

Majors: I Love Nursing! I transferred into Nursing after being in biological sciences. I wish I would have started in Nursing to begin with. I absolutely love the major. You aren't just learning a vast supply of knowledge, but also receiving hands-on experience during clinical and lab!

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.
