Off-Campus Dining: I've seen worse, but pretty standard college town fare.

Off-Campus Dining: Downtown is a great place to go to eat. We also have many options on campus as well.

Health & Safety: The police and security officers are great. The campus health center (Redfern) is nice and the employees are very much qualified, but they don't get as much experience as regular doctors, so I would probably go off-campus for serious conditions.

Campus Housing: Well, my freshmen year consisted of me living in the oldest and worst dorms on campus. That should explain my responses.

Technology: Everyone get's $25 worth per semester of free prints. The prints are $0.05 per print with black ink and $0.25 otherwise. Every student has "free" internet access and it's pretty fast and reliable. The availability of technology in the classroom depends on which buildings the classroom is located. There are tons of computers all around campus, but it's smart to have your own laptop. We receive free Microsoft software. Some labs have Adobe Creative Suite software, but because of my major, I had to buy it. I recently found out that students will get access to Adobe Creative Suite as long as they are on campus next year for free.

Parking: Typically, if it is an emergency, you can go to an office and get a parking pass that allows you to park anywhere. You can also go to parking meter slots. I think every 15 minutes cost $.25, but there's definitely a limit to how long you can stay. Also, parking services drive around all day up until like 7 p.m. trying to find people that are parked without authorization. There are typically successful. Within 30 minutes, if you are parked without authorization, you'll get a ticket. Fortunately, there is student parking. You just have to pay for a parking permit.

Local Area: Almost everything has already been answered. But there are many activities, we have a huge gym, a movie theatre, dining halls, a nice library, shopping areas downtown, great transportation, great sports, and a great supply of safety. Also, the students are really friendly. I am currently in Cultural Ambassadors, so we are in charge of supplying cultural events. We have many. Also at our performance arena, there are many cultural events that take place as well.

Guys & Girls: Everybody is there own person for the most part. Of course there are typical trends and some people conform to fit into their groups, clubs, fraternities and sororities.

Academics: Academics are the most important things at Clemson. The professors vary in effectiveness, but there are all certified. The curriculums can be tough, but that varies among majors. Registration process can be annoying; it becomes a big competition. We have free tutoring and special programs that help students.

Greek Life: It's okay. I'm not going to join, because most people join only to make friends. I don't feel the need to pay to make friends because my hometown is less then 10 minutes away, so if I don't have campus friends, I'll have the best friends ever off-campus. I have a lot of friends in sororities and fraternities; most are nice, but some act differently towards people who are not in them. But as I said, I do not care.

Administration: The only thing Clemson University is terribly strict on is drugs and alcohol. However, people are allowed to smoke cigarettes outside. Attendance pretty much varies from professor to professor. I would say, on my dorm hall, my RAs could have been a lot stricter on the noise levels, but that probably varies from hall to hall. Clemson officers and parking services do NOT play when it comes to parking. If you're parked in a place you're not supposed to for more than 15-30 minutes, expect that you have already received a ticket. They make a lot of money from it.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: I woundn't say that the diversity on campus is terrible. In terms of racial diversity, there definitely is a lack of. But everything else is pretty diverse.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: On campus, alcohol is not allowed at all. So you have to be kind of discreet because security walks around all night. However, if you want to drink, you pretty much can get away with it. You just have to be smart. We have something called AlchoholEDU that is required to take. It's pretty insightful, but I'd be lying if I said that everyone pays attention or follows the program's instructions.

Party Scene: There's a lot you can do in downtown Clemson during the night. There's tons of bars and eating places. We have something called Tiger transit that allows you do get around campus all night. If you're not partying, you're probably studying. So the Cooper Library stays open all night. It has 6 floors with various places to study in groups, privately, and even grab a snack or a cup of coffee. Obviously, a bigger city would have more options though.

Weather: It literally only rained hard three times the entire year. So, I loved the weather. We even had a couple of snow days; I hate snow, but I love canceled classes.

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.
