Academics: I came to Clemson University because it was the only school in South Carolina that had a Wildlife Biology program. It also offers other unique programs that some university don't offer. All the staff seems very friendly and ready to help no matter what it is. My professors are always on top of things. Even before class has started they will already have a list of things you need for the class so your not scrambling at the last minute.

Transportation: I am new, so I don't have much experience with the transportation system, but I've heard it is great. It saves you gas on not having to ride around looking for parking spots and runs every 30 mins.

College Junior

Greek Life: I just arrived at this school, so I don't really know anything about it, but I have heard of it.

Off-Campus Dining: There is a lot of fast food. There are some good local places just off campus. A lot of bars and wing places. It all pretty good. I'm personally a big Thai fan and there is one good Thai restaurant but its a bit expensive. There's another one opening up soon though so I'm excited to see what that one is like. It has plenty of the stereotypical variety. Fast food, pizza joints, bars, wings, a chinese buffet and a few hibachi and generic asian cuisine places. It's getting a McAllisters and an Ihop, both of which I'm excited about. The only thing I'm really disappointed in is that there isn't a Krispy Kreme within 30 minutes.

Drug Safety: There are a lot of bars near campus so drinking is plentiful. But it depends who you hang around in the long run.

3 College Junior

Weather: It is a nice mild heat in the summer with lots of rain. But the winters are cold and windy. I grew up in Florida so the winters feel very rough to me. I am always bundled up!

5 College Junior

Majors: I love my program! All of my professors have Been very accomplished in their fields and are always available to help their students. I have met a lot of very important people in my short time here and I am looking forward to this Fall semester!

Majors: Getting accepted into Clemson is a challenge and also a waiting game. You must have good grades and since I am a transfer student you have to pray they accept all of you previous credits. By the grace of The Lord they accepted all my transfer credits without hesitation. The application process is very normal. A tip I would give other students considering applying is to apply even if you don't think you will get in. It's a great place.

Health & Safety: Very safe and secure campus. There are rape beacons everywhere and a lot of lighting at night on the campus. I feel very safe at Clemson.

Local Area: Very boring - Clemson is centered around the college.

Greek Life: There are plenty of Greek housing and 60% of the Greek housing is off campus. Non-Greek view Greek as snobby and party houses. Don't think they do enough for community and certainly not adding to the school community in a positive way. They are very self centered students.

Guys & Girls: I noticed that there are a lot of snobs. The snobs are either from rich families or they are students that are going to Clemson because their parents are alumni. The other group are football players - the school has a huge interest in sports. I was very disappointed in this after my first year but now I am just focused to get done and move on.

Administration: The school is vert strict about alcohol and drugs. We are required to attend a seminar and take an online test regarding underage drinking. Even though the rules are strict the students still find a way to party and drink. I personally don't care either way because I am going to school to get my degree, I don't have time for parties. I don't use drugs or drink.

Health & Safety: Clemson always has security present, and the fact that the university is basically the town makes me feel even safer. There are barely any crime related incidents on campus, but we always get emails when something happens. We are informed about everything, which I really like.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: I am so confused with the whole financial aid process at Clemson. I just don't understand any of it. According to the website, I was entered for a lot of different scholarships after finishing a year, but I don't know if I got any or if I wasn't eligible or what. I don't have any tips because I still can't figure out the process myself.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is pretty big at Clemson. There are 12 sororities and almost just as many fraternities. The process to get a bid is grueling and, for me, not worth it. There are so many other sports groups, clubs, and activities, though, that it's not necessary to join a sorority just to do anything, and you won't be looked at differently for not joining one.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: If your not 21 like myself you make do and find some older friends and go to their house party. Then you don't have to worry about cover charges, buying food/drinks, or finding a way home, you can just crash at their house.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: With all the emergency help located around the campus and the student size it is very hard to find trouble unless you are looking for it.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Being from out-of-state made the process complicated, lots of phone tag. But if you stick with it, you'll get what you need

4 College Sophomore

Weather: It's always warm and sunny on game days, no snow to truck though in the winter. Definitely get some rain boots and an umbrella for January and February but it's beautiful.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: 80 thousand people all in solid orange cheering for one of the top ranked teams in the country. It is amazing and breathtaking and unique. We arn't ranked best tailgating for nothing.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The underage nightlife is great if youre a girl, as you can get a ride to any frat house or house party with a DD provided by the host. For guys it is a little more difficult to get into frat houses but house parties are still great. Free drinks, good music, dancing.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: I learned my first year that the south isn't always sunshine. It can rain, for days. And it can get cold. Come prepared.

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.
