4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Overall, I love Claflin University! There are plenty of things that Claflin needs to fix but there are plenty of things to love about Claflin as well. With caring professors and a family like atmosphere, Claflin has made me feel like more than just a number. The wait to get back on campus throughout this summer has been agonizing and I am just ready for August to come so I can move back in and see everybody!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Claflin does a really good job of finding internships and scholarships for students. The only way you won't get a scholarship or internship while attending here is if you just being lazy.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I think Claflin has a very safe campus. With the security guards always patrolling and the new S.N.A.P Program (Student Nighttime Auxillary Patrol) students feel secure on campus.

Campus Housing: Most of the housing on Claflin's campus is nice except for the dorms High Rise, Asbury, and Dunton. I thought High Rise was okay, but the tenants would often make it worse by breaking things in the dorm and leaving the bathroom nasty. Thankfully for this upcoming year, I will be in the newest dorm, Claflin Commons. Commons is a nice dorm, but the rooms are somewhat cramped. I preferred to be in SRC South since the rooms were bigger and it was closer to the Cafe, but Commons is better than High Rise. As a guy, I think Claflin needs more options for the men other than just South, Commons and High Rise. Overall, as long as I am not in High Rise, Claflin's housing is okay with me.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The greek life at Claflin is nice, but it would be better if all of the Divine Nine fraternities and sororities were on campus. The Alphas and Kappas are cool guys while the Deltas and Zetas have a good presence as well. I think our greek life will get a big boost if the Omegas comeback next year, but overall, I am satisfied with the greek life at Claflin.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletic program at Claflin is good, but could be better. The home basketball games can be fun at times, just as long as there is a good turnout from the students. The baseball team did well this season and won the SIAC championship, but their stadium needs a lot of improvement. The main gym is okay, and lucky Claflin has started on the expansion of the gym, so hopefully I will be able to experience that before I graduate.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far, my experience at Claflin has been great and I have met a lot of great people this past year. However, I felt that I could have done better by managing my time between classes better and talking to more people.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love Claflin University! The experience was the best.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: My honors dorm is awesome. On my arrival to Claflin University to Kleist, i was honestly confused. Its hotel-like style got me so puzzled until I realize it was really my dorm and thats where I would spend the year!!!

Greek Life: Again I did not know what a greek was. Its disappointing that the shows are so expensive to attend. However, my friends from teh caribbean and I enjoy watching the stroll offs. I think its fun and it brings people together.

5 College Junior

Athletics: I was only introduced to basket ball when my friend has to take the class, and in order to be rewarded credits she has to attend the match. After that, we both enjoyed the game. The fan support is awesome and the athletes are great. Track and feild, volleyball and baseball are also fantastic at my school.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Claflin University is great because ven though it has its flaws, it serves a diverse population. Not only is Claflin listed as the number one HBCU in the nation, it is one of the best schools. The staff and faculty looks out for the students and there are many programs in place to ensure that students are on the right path. When I converse with my internship peers I realize their school does not have such luxury. I am gratefult to be at Claflin and if I should do it again, I would attend Claflin.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Like I said, it could be better. But I want to return, I think I can help make it better.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I've visited other campuses they live drastically better than we do at Claflin University.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Not my "cup of tea"

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: I play baseball, we play on a city field and not a university field which causes our attendance to not be as high as other sports.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It could be better, but I enjoy it and need money in order to return in the Fall.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My classes haven't started yet but the enrollment process was a breeze.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I do not attend parties regularly but there is some sort of event every day.

Diversity: There is a large population of LGTB people on campus so it is very rare that someone will be discriminated against even with the large Christian community.

Overall Experience: The different festivals and events on campus make for a fun experience during the year and they usually happen around test times as stress relievers.

Diversity: We have extreme diversity amongst the campus. No one is treated any differently then the person next to them.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drugs are not allowed on campus at any time. If they are found anywhere you risk being kicked out of school.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Claflin University sets itself apart by being a small, family-oriented campus—and you will notice this from the moment you first arrive here. Everyone, from the administrators to the maintenance staff, is always warm, welcoming, friendly, and ready to assist the students. It is very hard to make enemies at this school because everyone respects everyone else and where they came from. The students and faculty come from different backgrounds, yet that does not lead to segregation.

The people here possess genuine Southern hospitality, a trait that never gets old around campus, and everyone takes pride in the rich history they have become a part of at Claflin. Everyone is always focused on their academic success and achieving the desired “Claflin Confidence.” The school constantly makes a personal effort to help students achieve all their goals by helping in whatever way they can. When you graduate from Claflin, you will not only leave with your diploma, but you will also leave with a wealth of great friendships and family bonds that you have made with others at the University. It truly is a rewarding experience.
