5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Nothing really beats the Clemson experience. I am very satisfied with my experiences there and it provides a very nice place to live and learn. There are many things to do and things to see while still providing the good education as a top 20 public university.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I LOVE Clemson! It feels like a big family atmosphere on campus and the amenities are wonderful as an added bonus! Clemson campus is smaller than other universities but I Love that along with the setting of the location. Happy place to be!

Party Scene: Downtown is an awesome time as long as you're of age, or if you're underage as long as you don't get caught by SLED (undercover police) and get an MIP. Fraternity darties are always a good time, and fraternities always serve free alcohol, which is always a win

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There is off-campus housing that is in walking distance from campus which is vary convenient.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: If you are looking for a party they are easy to find.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of variety and options. Also most places will deliver to campus.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: There is a fairly strong police campus on and around campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The food is not bad, it is just something you get sick of.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: There is a large emphasis placed on test scores for academic scholarships. Even when the student is enrolled at the college and has received good grades, test scores from before college are still a large factor which is disappointing

Campus Housing: Living on campus is great since you are right in the middle of all activities. Living in the horseshoe is a great option for incoming freshman since so many freshman live in this area.

Off-Campus Housing: Great prices for nice houses, the pools are great and neighborhood communities are great options for those who have pets. Living downtown is hard to obtain but if you do there's no better way to do off-campus housing.

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: Variety of options, something for everyone. Lots of weekly deals that are awesome, and they are always willing to do proceeds nights for campus organization fundraisers

Administration: RAs are cool, so campus housing is great. Campus police lives to give out MIPs like candy. Parking services are children of satan.

2 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: For health conscious eaters/ those who have restricted diets, the dining halls don't work that much in your favor to give you a variety of options. You have the choice of cereal, yogurt bar, sandwiches, and omlettes. That's about it.

3 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: Strive for the honors college if you're out of state, because that's the only way you'll get money if you aren't a minority or have a household income below the federal poverty level.

Campus Housing: Campus housing can be great and it can also be awful, it all depends on what dorm you end up living in. The high rises in the horseshoe, Greek housing on the quad, McCabe, and honors dorms in Holmes are pretty nice for freshman dorms. Stadium suites are a great options for sophomores who want to stay on campus sophomore year. On campus apartments in Lightsey are pretty nice, but the other on campus apartments are disgusting. The terrible freshman dorms, in my opinion, are the shoeboxes and especially Johnstone. However, people I know who lived in them either absolutely loved them or hated them. Dorms are all right next to dining halls depending on which part of campus you live in. I had a corner room in Manning that wasn't concrete walls, was spacious, and gave me a great dorm experience.

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.

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.
