5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: As soon as someone says something about a possible safety concern, a staff in the school will immediately send out mass emails to everyone and project an announcement through speakers. Campus crime is not very likely considering that there are always cops and civilians around to be on the look out. Overall I feel very safe on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Academically, Clemson provides a great selection of professors (although some are not so good) and a substantial but fair workload. Registering for classes is also simple and fair (priority is given to those in the honors college and athletes, then based on number of completed credit hours), and the library is very spacious and can handle a great number of people. The library culture is also very accommodating for those wishing to individually study as opposed to those working on group projects as floors are separated based on noise level (collaborative zones).

Administration: Students are expected and highly encouraged to adhere to an honor code which includes abstaining from alcohol/drug use. In addition, Clemson's Parking Services are notorious for their frequent distribution of tickets for even the slightest traffic violation.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on-campus is a great experience. If you live anywhere on campus, you are most likely very close to a number of classes and dining options. Although the dorms are rather cramped, if you become friends with people on your floor then the social atmosphere becomes fantastic as many of your friends are right next to you; of course, this may not appeal to everyone. I lived in Lever Hall (reserved for students in STEM majors) which had little rule enforcement mainly because most residents did not require it. The cost is also a downside as the on campus dorms have been the most expensive of all of the living options I have considered.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: Clemson as a college-town honestly has little attraction other than of course the university itself. Attractions and shopping options are very limited, although the locals are very supportive of the students.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Considering that this is a university in the south, Greek life is extremely prevalent in student life. People won't treat others different for their affiliation, but they certainly have opinions about one another, and joining Greek life is highly encouraged. Greek housing is somewhat strewn about campus except for one area known as the Greek Village which is a large circle of Greek housing known for its frequent parties.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Considering that I have yet to live off-campus (but plan to do so next year), this should be taken from the perspective of a prospective tenant --and with a grain of salt. From what I have observed, most off campus housing is relatively close (within 10 minutes of campus) and there are a number of options to choose from (Tillman Place, Chimney Ridge, The Lofts, etc). Also, at least one that I have seen is actually cheaper than my current on-housing campus (which includes utilities, and is more spacious) so I would assume that other would follow suit to be competitive. Other than that, I cannot offer adequate information about any other aspect of off-campus housing.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Partying is abundant and frequent where as long as one's social circle is at least somewhat robust finding a party should be easy especially during the weekends. The party scene gives many students an outlet from the stress of school work and, if attendance is in moderation, should not negatively impact one's scholastic performance.

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Receiving financial aid at Clemson University was truly effortless, filing my FAFSA was more-or-less all that was necessary to receive all of my financial aid thus far.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: I strongly advise everyone considering Clemson to maintain your scholarships even through to your senior year. It is extremely difficult to pay for tuition (getting loans) when you lose your scholarships and when your parents cannot help you. Once your aid is maxed out (usually in your senior year), the financial aid office WILL NOT HELP YOU.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The professors do a great job in introducing the course material at the beginning of the semester. Most are do very well in the teaching methods they use and giving help to students during office hours.

4 College Senior

Campus Food: It's great to have a healthy meal every day for the week, but the meal plans are very expensive.

5 College Senior

Administration: Parking regulations are extremely strict on campus. Tickets are guaranteed for those parked in the wrong areas. It is definitely a burden as parking is already very limited.

3 College Senior

Local Area: Clemson is a pretty small town with not much to do. However, Anderson is not too far away. The local atmosphere of the Clemson is nice and usually very friendly.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: You have the basic stores such a Wall-Mart, Bi-Lo, and McDonald's, etc., at a very convenient distance from campus.

4 College Senior

Athletics: There is a great deal of school spirit when it comes to athletics.

4 College Senior

Academics: There is a wide variety of internship/co-op opportunities for those in the engineering field. The career center is definitely geared towards catering to engineering students. The workload in my major is manageable although there are a few courses that will definitely challenge the student.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: The safety and security on campus is pretty good. There are security guards who do rounds across campus every night. We also have a transit system that runs all night for those who would rather not walk to their dorms or labs at night.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus crime is very low. There have been a few break-ins off campus, but nothing serious on campus. I feel safe walking around at night, but usually prefer to have someone with me just in case. There are the blue emergency lights to press if something does happen. Tiger Transit is also useful if you are uncomfortable walking.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: Finding where to apply for scholarships, and actually getting scholarships, from the school are very difficult. I feel as if I deserve more scholarships than I am receiving because of my outstanding performance academically at Clemson so far.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I love my major. I like that I can easily get into medical school with it but I also have other option. The most difficult part are the actual academics. The admissions process was no different than other majors. I would advise to work hard in high school so that you stand out to the admissions board.

Off-Campus Dining: I don't eat out much, but when I do I always have plenty of options down town, on Tiger Blvd or in Anderson.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I am moving off campus next year and had many things to consider, like utilities included and a furnished place. Some places are very expensive so those were thrown out, but I found the place I love and will probably stay there for three years.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Clemson is a school that is easy to enjoy. There aren't any super strict rules that make going to college not fun, but there are enough rules that I feel safe. Clemson isn't afraid to punish students who have done things wrong so student usually behave well.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: the dining halls are rough

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.
