4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: On campus housing is continually getting better. Although the buildings are a little old they seem to updating them a little at a time. Extremely close to classes which is a plus and the student center has everything you would need.

Campus Dining: The food gets old fast. They don't have too much good food. The quality should be better if they are going to serve the same thing all the time.

Athletics: Clemson Tigers. ACC. USC rivalry. Orange Bowl. Football is king, all the big sports are here but nothing is going to bigger than football season.

Greek Life: Not a part of it, too old to care about it. But it's very apparent and very important to mainstream students.

Overall Experience: I wouldn't do it again for personal reasons. It's a great school, especially for engineering. Moving to SC cost me a great deal of money and headache. I would have been better off staying in California but that has nothing to do with anything Clemson did wrong.

Health & Safety: Every now and then there will be something, but it seems to be dealt with quickly. Incidents are rare (to my knowledge) and the university is very good with sending texts and e-mails to alert students of issues.

Campus Strictness: After being in the military for 9 years, nothing on campus could be too strict for me but that being said they are sticklers for attendance in most classes. That was the only thing that surprised me.

Scholarships: I was in a very unique situation and my experience with financial aid will likely not apply to many others. If you're in-state, or even just working on your first undergrad degree, it shouldn't be too bad.

Campus Dining: I don't use it a whole lot, but it looks alright. A bit overpriced compared to cooking yourself, but if you're in a dorm, what are you going to do?

Facilities: Campus life is pretty solid, always something going and there are tons of clubs. Greek life is huge here, so if you're into that, you'll have a bast. Facilities are all pretty nice, no complaints there.

Facilities: I haven't been to a lot of schools, but football is huge, and tailgating is quite a good time.

Nightlife: It's a small college town, so there's a very limited number of nightlife spots and they're all very similar. Most fall into the "sports bar" genre. There's one hole in the wall beer garden where you can get something other than crap American drafts and one sushi place that turns into this nightclub-esque place later at night.

Diversity: While Clemson University is not openly racist, bigotted or the like. It is very homogeneous.. The student population is predominantly southern, white, affluent and Christian.

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.
