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.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Although the statistics show that students who live off campus tend to do a little worse the trade off of grades for comfortable living is probably worth it. Chimney Ridge and Aspen Heights offer more options than you can shake a stick at. They both give away tons of cool free stuff as promotional items and at Aspen Heights usually gives a 40' lcd tv when you sign a lease. of course besides what they do off campus housing is simply better. Theres no concern of parking tickets (which is a huge problem on campus) the amenities offered at some of the places are unheard of (one has a putting green and another a private theater) prices range from really cheap to still seemingly affordable. almost all off campus are cheaper than on campus. The only real downside is the drive to campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Its really a hit or miss. (unless you are in the honors college or ROTC) Freshman housing is either Clemson House, Johnstone, or the horseshoe. Clemson House is the newest with its own gym and dining hall, but it is the most inconveniently located. Johnstone is the worst, its the oldest and always smells. They are knocking it down in the next couple of years, but it is the best location (essentially in the middle of campus and on top of the best dining hall and a Chick-Fil-a). The horseshoe consists of 2 all girls high rises, 1 male high rise, 1 coed by floor dorm (all of these dorms are pretty small but the male dorm has a gym) and greek housing. There is a dining hall in this part of campus which always has more girls but isn't as good. There are a few more housing complexes that are technically on campus but they aren't near any of the academic buildings and they are almost exclusively for sophomores.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There are a few local bars only for seniors really. House parties are dominated by greek life so you really have to be in a frat or show up with girls. There is sometimes the odd open house but it is a seldom occasion.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The variety of resuarants around campus is not as good as it would be in a larger city.

5 College Freshman

Technology: On campus computing is widely available and backed up by one of the countries fastest mainframe computers. Students must have their own laptops but there are still a good number of public labs. Access to printing is easy and prints out when you scan your card so it does not take the chance of being picked up by someone before you can get it from the computer.

Off-Campus Housing: There are several newer off campus apartment vilages around campus with a range of amenities.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Clemson is a very safe campus with access to the public transportation and in addition to that it's is only a call to Tiger Transit to pick you up if you feel any danger at all. Campus is well lit and although it is not within a wall and gate it is definitely set aside as a campus adjacent to a safe, small town.

4 College Freshman

Weather: Very temperate and easy to enjoy seasons without extreme hot or cold.

5 College Sophomore

Weather: When it rains, it pours all day and your shoes will get soaked. Buy a pair of rainboots and get over it, because that's basically the worst weather that ever happens in Clemson. Light snow in January/February

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Clemson's campus police are very effective. Luckily there is not a lot of crime in the area, but they are vigilant about enforcing road rules and parking. I always feel safe walking around campus.

5 College Junior

Transportation: The CatBus at Clemson is rated as one of the best free bus transportation systems in the nation.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I haven't stayed on campus yet, but I will be this upcoming year. I have been in several of the different living areas, though. Some are better than others. Most of them are what you would expect at a University. There are apartment options, single room options, and more.

4 College Senior

Majors: My program is Language and International Health. It's relatively new, so it's small, which is a plus when it comes to advising and meeting with the head of the department. I really enjoy my classes, and I have pretty much every class with the same people so it's easier to make friends with classmates. I also get to do an internship abroad next summer as part of the curriculum, which is a really great opportunity!

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: While there have been a few crimes committed on campus lately, I have never felt unsafe at Clemson. There emergency poles all around campus that allows students to call the police if they ever feel unsafe. Lights stay on all night around campus to make sure that when students are walking back to their dorms late at night, they are never walking in the dark. There is also an app that sends students CUSafeAlerts. These messages contain information about weather safety and information about local crimes.

2 College Senior

Parking: It costs around $150 for a parking pass that lasts the whole school year and if you have later classes then you have to search for a spot. Also, the parking people aren't lenient when it comes to tickets. My roommate this past year didn't get a pass, so when she drove to campus, she parked in a meter spot and she probably got five different tickets for being two minutes past its expiration.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Clemson has many academic programs that are very beneficial for the students: co-op, internships, and study abroad. Many of the students who co-op end up getting offered full time positions after graduation. All internships that Clemson suggests are paid. The study abroad program is very good as well due to the many different options available.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Clemson University really is home to the happiest students. The students and their attitude is what makes this school great. Clemson is rich in tradition, such as the First Friday Parade, where all the students gather downtown for a parade to celebrate returning to campus for the Fall semester. There are all sorts of organizations to join. Even if you don't join a club, you will never feel left out at Clemson. The teachers take a personal interest in their student's success and will try to help in any way they can.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Food around campus is generally good. There are many restaurants that are fantastic for a quick meal or a quiet dinner. Even the dining halls are good but after a while they get a little bit old. Some nights they have surprises in terms of food.

Transportation: Clemson has better public transportation than most cities in South Carolina. One phone call and you have a bus coming your way taking you to any point you would like on campus. They also have transit bus's that take you to other surrounding areas outside of campus.

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.
