Off-Campus Housing: Clemson is a small town so most of the off-campus housing is really close. if it's not then it's on the lake, which is really nice. I've never felt unsafe in Clemson. The CAT Bus route also hits most of the big apartment complexes so there's no reason you need a car to get to class

Off-Campus Dining: I mostly eat in the dinning halls, but there's a lot of variety and the prices are fair.

Party Scene: I don't go to many parties that aren't at my friend's places. They are good and most people are responsible. It helps that the CAT bus runs 24/7 so most people take the bus when going downtown or to a party they know will be alcohol involved.

Administration: Parking services will give you a ticket fast if you are illegally parked. Other than that I haven't had any problems

Scholarships: I went to the online financial aid section and it clearly laid out all of my financial aid options. The folks at Sikes Hall were also very helpful on all of my questions.

Campus Food: The dinning halls (Harcombe and Schilletter) have really stepped up there quality of food. They use locally grown food and have more healthy options than before. They also cater to vegan and gluten free preferences. You can also use your tiger stripe and paw points at various places off campus as well as on campus.

Campus Housing: I never had campus housing.

Off-Campus Housing: Clemson has many different off-campus housing options and the prices are usually quite fair, in addition many of the main apartment complexes are located within a 10 minute ride from campus. The variety is there if you're willing to look for it and pay a little bit more (same goes for quality). The major apartment complexes are known for often having problems regarding administrative organization and communication with tenants.

Off-Campus Dining: Like most college towns it is filled with fast-food and chains; however, there are also quite a few locally owned establishments that can be quite good and for a fair price.

Party Scene: Aside from the obvious frat and sorority parties which I can't comment on there are many options. If you know people there is always some kind of party or get together happening. While too much can certainly hurt your academics they are a big part of college life. Most parties happen at someones house/apartment either in UV or Chimney Ridge.

Administration: The administration does a fairly good job but they are often plagued by inept faculty that can cause problems with campus-life.

Scholarships: The process isn't too hard but they like to keep adding extra paperwork, they take their time and you're not guaranteed the amount you need.

Off-Campus Housing: I have never lived off-campus.

Off-Campus Dining: Much of the same you would find on-campus or Downtown.

Administration: Punishment rarely occurs, even when there is blatant evidence of contraband.

Party Scene: Can't review--I don't attend them.

Scholarships: The process itself is trouble-free. Whether you get the amount of aid you need is another story.

Campus Food: All dining halls have some stations that change daily and some that do not. I my experience I find that Schiletter has more variety (this is due to it having four stations that regularly change). Harcombe and Clemson House, for comparison, only have two. Despite this, I find Harcombe to have the worst food. On any given day/night I can walk in and walk out, seeing nothing I want while pizza and chicken patties are served constantly. Overall, the dining hall food is nothing special. However, there are many options on campus if you have the money or PawPoints to spend.

Campus Housing: Dorms vary. I live in Johnstone Hall, by far the oldest and worst dormitory on campus. Other housing such as Clemson House and Stadium Suites are in much better condition. Overall, housing varies a bit too wildly to give an unbiased review.

Off-Campus Housing: Living off campus was refreshing after freshman year in the dorms.

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.
