3 College Freshman

Weather: I was not expecting the fluctuation of hot. cold, rain and snow that South Carolina has. However, when it is a nice day, there is nothing more beautiful.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am non-Greek but I have many friends who are Greek. I do not feel as if they are different and they do not treat me any differently. I believe Clemson needs a Fraternity Roe or something with real houses they do not have to rent year by year.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Football is a life changing experience at Clemson. The school spirit is absolutely insane.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I need much more than I received but I am still working on it.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: While many students have been raised very conservative and intolerant in the south, Clemson does a good job at accepting diversity. There is a diversity floor in the dorm I lived in last year and it seemed to make those who lived there feel more accepted and comfortable.

3 College Freshman

Majors: I began as a biochemistry major and changed to food science - nutrition. I would love to major in exercise science, however, Clemson does not offer that major. That was my only disappointment.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I have completed a year as a biochemistry major and I really enjoyed it. I am now a food science major for next year and I am looking forward to the classes I will be taking.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Downtown is a cute little strip with good restaurants, however, it would be nice if some places were open later.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: People seem to be very southern and preppy but overall, everyone is so nice.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I personally feel really safe on campus.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The town is so cute and cozy, and the people are very friendly.

3 College Freshman

Computers: I do not use the school computers, as I have a laptop. They are available, which is nice, however, the wireless internet is terrible and rarely works.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Downtown and Tiger Road have about every common fast food place you can think of. Downtown has bars, pizza, burger joints, Moes, and Chipotle. McDonalds, Zaxby, Waffle House, Papa Johns, etc are all nearby (only about 1 or 2 miles from campus). There are plenty of off campus dining options. Just depends on what you like.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: This is touchy.The school has diversity except there's hardly any Hispanics. There is mix bag of people with different beliefs on religion and economic background. I'm not sure about political beliefs (I don't worry about it to much). Whatever you are sexually know one minds or would ask. Everyone has a home here at Clemson.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: Depending on the time or day, TigerTransit can be Sonic fast or take years to show up and take you around.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I haven't seen anyone take drugs outside of drinking alcohol. Alcohol on campus isn't uncommon but its not a huge problem. BUT, off campus drinking is common and high at parties.

5 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Obvious things such as bringing drugs and alcohol into campus will get you kicked out real quick if your caught. Other then that everything else is fair. (Sometimes parking becomes a pain)

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: They have emergency phones across campus, lights are always on, there's always other students walking around campus no matter what the time. Only time safety becomes a concern is during huge sporting events where the campus becomes hectic. Also be careful of drunk drivers at night if you party often.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't lived off campus yet....

3 College Freshman

Majors: I'm a freshmen, went into computer science and Engineering.... Just know that Clemson has an excellent program for both but its rigorous and very difficult. Always look for internships or jobs for whatever major your going into. It will help.

3 College Freshman

Majors: Computer Science will vary between people. I wanted to design websites and didn't understand what C coding was for so I didn't enjoy my freshmen year with it. Others enjoy this major, try to enjoy the challenge projects will bring. Just focus and do work.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Classes are tough but the more effort you put in the classes the better you will do. Most professors are great but PAY ATTENTION to there ratings.

4 College Freshman

Weather: It stays colder then it should in the South but Clemson is close to the mountains. When its nice outside the weather is perfect!

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: I'm still broke. My family earns to much for assistance but its hard to afford classes here.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The night life is very active in the city.

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.
