Clemson University is the best decision I have ever made. The culture around campus and the community is absolutely amazing. I would recommend it to everyone

Besides the extremely hard and stressful classes, Clemson University is full of diverse and interesting people with plenty of activities to go out and have fun and make friends. You can never get bored or hungry, because there are things to do and places to eat everywhere, even off-campus. I was hesitant about choosing Clemson at first, but if I could do it again, I would choose Clemson every time.
