4 College Freshman

Administration: Regulations are enforced when the safety of a student is at risk.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I love the indoor track!

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The housing options are great, but there is a vast amount of competition for off-campus housing.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The dining is good in regards to the flexibility of the occasion.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: There are not that many available options for financial aid for out-of- state students. Many of the students are in debt.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: I personally enjoyed the amount of variety and the friendliness of the staff.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It is very convenient to live on campus. Yet, the campus does lack diversity so it can be hard to fit in. The cost of the university is very high for out-of-state students. They should acquire more financial aid. But overall, everyone is willing to help out and share the available resources of the campus.

3 College Junior

Administration: Parking services and the local police are a little ridiculous. Some of these guys take their jobs way too seriously. It often seems like they are just looking for trouble and trying to bust underage drinkers when they should be more focused on looking out for the best interest and safety of the students.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Clemson doesn't revolve around Greek life, but if you are in Greek life it is an easy and fun way to meet people and get involved.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Clemson basically revolves around football season. I wasn't even that interested in football before coming to Clemson, but now I love it!

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I love living off-campus! You can find apartments within walking distance from campus or just a quick drive. The cost varies, but overall it is pretty affordable. Clemson has a housing fair every year where you can find out about all of the options. Most places have pools and other great amenities.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Tailgating for Saturday home games, going to dartys, and going to bars downtown are all pretty exciting!

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: For a tiny town like Clemson, there are actually quite a few options for off-campus dining. There are a lot of student discounts like $1 taco nights and $1 pizza slice nights at a couple of different places. It is also nice that students who live on-campus can easily walk downtown and have a meal even if they don't have a car. Could use some more variety, but new restaurants and bars keep showing up so that's promising!

5 College Junior

Scholarships: Clemson gives merit scholarships to prospective incoming out-of-state Freshman with high test scores. This scholarship helps cover the out-of-state fees and it is very helpful! I would probably not be at Clemson without this scholarship.

1 College Junior

Campus Food: Do not come here for the food. Don't judge the school on it's food either.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Average housing conditions. It really varies depending on where you live. They are in the process of building a bunch of new dorms which sound like they are going to be pretty great!

3 College Junior

Scholarships: There are not many options for students attempting a second degree. There is almost no scholarship money and the staff are not the most helpful. There is a hardship grant that the school offers but it is not advertised and almost no one knows how to start the process for it.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: There is plenty of variety on campus for food. You can usually find something for everyone. I like that Clemson produces it's own ice cream and sells in it's own ice cream parlor. I do think that the food can be rather expensive for what you get. Especially some of the convenient already packaged meals.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I transferred from a school where I was in a sorority but Clemson doesn't have it so I am no longer an active member.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Frats won't let guys in unless you're on a list which sucks if you want to go to a party and one guy in your group isn't in a frat.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I really like that I can go off campus and still use tiger stripe.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: They're not the easiest to work with and seem like it's a bother to help you.

1 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I transfered and was basically treated like I was worthless to Clemson. Mind you I had a 3.9 GPA transferring in from another University so I was definitely an asset to Clemson. They don't "allow" transfer students to receive any scholarships and once I completed a semester and had a 3.8 GPA, I wasn't eligible for anything because my GPA was too low. One B and suddenly I'm not worthy of a scholarship. Also out of state and don't qualify for financial aid even though I can't afford 40,000 a year. Because I'm not dirt poor I'm supposed to be able to come up with that much money without any help.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Chick Fil A needs to start serving Chicken minis in the mornings.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are lots of different locations to live off-campus that can be very close to campus, while others can be around ten minutes away. Parking is usually not a problem and many places offer special amenities, such as a pool, tanning beds, computer lab, printing, washers/dryers, sports facilities, and gyms. Nice places to live include Campus View, Crawford, Aspen Heights, and The Pier. The cost of living off-campus can be very expensive if you have more roommates and if you live closer to campus.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
