I am absolutely in love with Clemson. I am from Pittsburgh, PA, so living in the South is a big change, but it's a large part of Clemson's appeal. The campus is stunning and nearly every person you see walking around will smile at you. I always feel welcomed and safe around campus. There are so many clubs and organizations to get involved in at Clemson, the choices are overwhelming. The D1 sports are a great selling point too; football games may be one of my favorite things about Clemson! The faculty members I have interacted with have been great and very helpful: professors, academic advisers, etc. The academics at Clemson are pretty challenging, especially in the Honors College, but there are many resources such as tutoring and Peer Assisted Learning sessions at the Academic Success Center. Clemson is a fun, safe, welcoming environment in which students are encouraged to thrive.

Clemson University is overall an amazing university to attend school. The professors are very engaged with the students, the campus itself is the beautiful, the food is so delicious, and it is so fun rooting on all of our amazing athletic teams throughout the season. I am currently a sophomore attending this school and I commute everyday there for about a 35 minute drive. However, this drive very much worth it since I love every minute of the experience of the school while I am there. I absolutely love being apart of the Clemson family and I would highly encourage others to join as well!

"Rain, sleet, snow, or hail, tiger nation, they gonna show!" - Dabo Swinney. Saturday is a day dedicated for football. The school has amazing school spirt. The roads have tiger paws sprayed on them year round. The new athletic complex that the athletic department is building is about to have the biggest indoor field in the country. I think the part that is the coolest is that I have become friends with some of the football players and they are down to earth guys. They don't see themselves as better than the average student. They seem to like to chat and sort of have their own normal college experience. Its pretty awesome to see. You best believe Clemson is going to the College Football Playoff again this year!
