4 College Senior

Academics: Business as Usual – Although Clemson is an engineering school, the business school provides so many great opportunities for networking, in-depth and detailed classes, manageable workload, a great career center, and to top it all off the Business center is being completely rebuilt.

5 College Senior

Academics: Great Classes, Great Professors. Although I have only spent two semesters at Clemson, I have yet to find a professor I found to be uninterested in helping his/her students take away as much as possible from a class.

Diversity: Individual Groups – Transferring from College of Charleston where everyone seems to be united by the beach was a strange transition to the ways of Clemson. Many students at Clemson seem to hang out specifically with people in their major, their small friend group, or only with others in their own soriority or fraternity. Clemson student diversity acceptance is a challenge they are slowly overcoming.

Computers: Average Computer Quality – With Cooper library providing plenty of computers there is only overcrowding during midterms and finals. There are fast, reliable, and limited Macs and plenty of PCs. Problems with the PCs include slow start up and occasional crashing. Overall the computers work averagely efficiently but one may run into problems here and there.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Small Town College – Basically the only things you'll see here are the bars. Which are only fun if you are 21 and then even after that it can get monotonous.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Everyone Here Is Beautiful – This is probably the most attractive school in the state. No joke.

1 College Sophomore

Parking: Unfortunately, there are no rainbow passes for parking, so you have to purchase the appropriate decal and park in the correct lot, unless you don't mind the whopping tickets, ranging from $15-$115. They let you appeal your cases, but I firmly believe that they are trying to squeeze money out of us. They are very quick at catching mistakes if you make them. My cousin got ticketed for no definite reason, even though he followed the rules. It's too inconvenient to park in parking lots that are nowhere close to your classes.

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of different restaurants off of 123 which is right next to Clemson's campus. There is a variety of different ethnic foods. Atami Express is my favorite; it is a "fast food" Japanese restaurant but it is healthy and relatively cheap.

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: A - Variety – Clemson has a very wide variety of dining services. They stretch all across campus so that wherever you are, you will find somewhere to eat that interest you. Clemson also has a very good commuter plan that allows students who live off campus to have about one meal a day on campus (such as lunch, as a break in between classes so you do not have to go all the way home). We have many popular vendors that are located on campus as well (Chicfila, Chilis, Starbucks is coming for Fall 2012).

4 College Junior

Computers: Good Overall – There are lots of computer labs and printing locations around campus. There is a limit on how much you can print for free, but it's a lot so I've never come close to going over. The computers can get busy at peak times, but it's usually not too bad. The wireless is usually great too. Every once in a while it'll be problematic for a couple hours, but they always get it fixed very quickly.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The best thing about Clemson is the awesome family atmosphere. People here have so much pride in their school that it is impossible for it to not rub off on you. Academics are challenging but you can always find someone to work with or study with that are similiar to you and your study habits. Like we always say, this is "God's country" and I cherish every minute i get to live and breath here at Clemson.

Majors: Engaged Learning – I transferred to Clemson from a small, private university, and one of the main things I was worried about was that I would become a number in a large university and not receive much individual attention. I was so wrong! Almost all of my classes have been less than 30 people, and the larger ones have incorporated group tables to help make the class feel less intimidating/more interactive. I've truly enjoyed all my classes, major and non-major. All of my teachers have made themselves available for regular office hours and frequently hold test review or homework help sessions in the evening. As an engineering major, my classes are pretty tough, but I enjoy learning the material so much, and the instructors do a good job of keeping it interesting. You can really tell they all love their subjects.

4 College Junior

Majors: Relatively Tough – Most majors at Clemson are pretty tough. The majority of toughness comes from the world class engineering program. Some majors have a first year or two until you can declare that major and enroll in the specific program.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greeks Are Mostly Cool – Greek life does not dominate but has major influence in Clemson life. Between parties, events, and tailgates; Greek life does a lot of fun stuff. It is common to not join a fraternity or sorority but we all have friends who are apart of greek life.

Off-Campus Housing: A - Availability, Convenience, Location, Cost, Safety – I believe that the Off-Campus housing provided here at Clemson University is very affordable which allows many students to get an option to live off campus but still be able to afford it. Also it is very convenient becuase they are close to campus so it is easy to walk to class and since they are so close it is also very safe. There is a free transport system that goes to all off-campus housing.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Girls Are Hot – Clemson is mostly southern women but has its northern influence from students coming down south to gain their education. If you aren't from around here you will understand why the girls are gorgeous here. Great weather and way of life make the best people.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Lots of Variety – No matter your taste, you can find someone attractive at Clemson. Take a walk through campus and you'll see guys in head-to-toe camo, pastel polos, band t-shirts, and cargo shorts. The girls are just as diverse in floral dresses, t-shirts, and ecclectic outfits. As a girl, I'd say there are plenty of hot guys. And there's someone for everyone's taste, too.

Nightlife: Where do I begin.... I'll just say after two months of two stepping and partying it up in San Antonio, TX... Clemson is completely lame in comparison. I'm afraid these people don't know how to have a serious good time unless your idea of a good time is standing around at bars that are all the same talking about nothing and drinking. NO ONE DANCES :( and if you want to get to any apartment complexes they are all so far away.

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Ultimate College Town – If you are looking for a college town Clemson is where you want to be. It is a small town, but the college bars a so much fun, fraternity parties are a blast, and game day is unmatched.

5 College Junior

Academics: Prepares You for the Real World – Professors and courses are hard, but prepare you for the real world. Clemson is a very progressive school and has been improving academics year after year. President Barker is committed to improving the academics every year and has been doing a great job.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: Cheap and Average – The dining halls are pretty good, but get old quickly. The unlimited food option is definitely a plus, but the food quality isn't as good as places that you pay more for.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There's Something in These Hills – I love clemson! I moved down to Clemson from Maryland and the culture shock was immense and took a semester to adjust however I now love this place and I love it more and more everyday. Clemson is an amazing place to be and the atmosphere on campus is electric and addictive as there is more spirit here than at any school that I can image. There's a reason its one of the happiest schools in the country

Campus Housing: Pass but Not Great – I lived in the tower, an all guys dorm which sounds aweful but it wasnt. There's always someone partying and something to do and you are surrounded by two towers of all girls and three sorority dorms nearby. Overall the on campus housing is nothing special but there are plenty of good places to live and a wide variety if you want to be on campus. Would recommend stadium suites or holmes/mccabe to be close to stuff and in the most convenient location.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Above Average, Could Be Better – The dining halls are probably a C+. They are always crowded and serve the same food repeatedly. The food is okay for awhile but gets old really quickly and it mostly tastes the same. Not worth getting an unlimited dining plan. The other places to eat are pretty good its worth getting paw points or tigerstripe to spend on chick fil a, einstein bros, subway, papa johns or burger works. The canteen and hendrix center are the places to eat, they are A quality.

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.
