5 College Junior

2 College Junior

Diversity: Diversity is a big issue that Clemson has had to deal with in recent years.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: Clemson is a very conservative, religious school that drugs and alcohol are not a large problem.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The political science department here at Clemson is less nurtured than the hard sciences departments. We have less variety of classes and post graduate opportunities than hard science majors, but it is sufficient.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: You have to go out of your way and take advantage of career services, to get the best from it. When you do its pretty efficient in helping to get what you want.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel very safe here at Clemson, it is a small campus so there isn't many instances of long walks alone. I don't know of anyone personally who has experienced a dangerous situation here at Clemson, but I do know they occur.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: On campus housing is very old and poor. So it is very popular for students their sophomore year to move off-campus to the various luxurious apartment complexes in the Clemson area, which financially matches how much it costs to live on campus.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: The Greek life is getting more popular at Clemson. Many of the fraternities have gotten in trouble with the school because of varies issues that is decreasing the popularity of frat parties.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Clemson revolves around athletics, especially football. Everyone attends the games, everyone loves the team. The stadium is always packed and it is extremely difficult to get student tickets. The sports teams at Clemson are very good year round, basketball being the only sport that really disappoints. Clemson has a very lovable head football coach that serves as the face of the school in many ways with his values.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Love the school spirit of Clemson, the fall semester is almost magically because of football season and how beautiful the campus is. The classes are challenging, less challenging if not from South Carolina. It is easy to make friends and have fun. Very conservative school, party scene is not very vibrant but it does exist.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: You ain't getting in the bars at night unless you're 21, but frat parties are great for the under 21 crowd!

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Get use to walking to the compound. They party most often

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Registration process has improved a TON. Also, there are several beautiful spaces to study on campus, and professors are always willing to help you.

1 College Sophomore

Diversity: Barely any diversity whatsoever. The athletes are the extent of diverse students

1 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Dorms and on campus apartments are costly and not worth the price at all. Move off campus as soon as you can if you want to save money

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Every Clemson student backs their Tigers 110%!

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Stereotypical southern Greek Life is certainly present everywhere. It feels like majority of students rush, even though statistics say otherwise.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel completely safe on campus! Even at 3 am (yes sometimes I walk across campus late in the night)

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: drugs and alcohol is gonna be present, but it's your decision to use it

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Majority of my classes have been small which is great for getting to know the professors better. The courses are also challenging so you feel like you are always learning something!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Clemson's alumni network is #1 for a reason. You truly feel like family on and off campus, and instantly relate to any alumni of the university. Alumni are always looking out for each other and helping their fellow tigers.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is certainly its own faction on Clemson's campus, and it is a faction I am not a part of. From the abundance of sorority girls who lived on my hall, I can tell that Greek life contributes greatly to the party scene, and while for the most part I believe that those not involved are indifferent to Greeks, there are definitely stereotypes in place, especially when it comes to frat guys who all seemingly dress the same, look the same, act the same, and talk the same. All I know of Greek housing available is the Greek Quad.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletics at Clemson are definitely a dominating force. There is substantial student involvement, and exceptional team performance and dedication. The school spirit is unmatched, in my opinion, and there's no place like Death Valley on game day. I haven't been to many of the athletic facilities, but those I have been to, such as Death Valley and Fike, are incredible.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love the wide range of classes available for me to take, and the beautiful campus makes long treks to class more bearable. I had a great first year with classes that challenged me academically and really pushed me to work hard. Some of my professors weren't the greatest, but for the most part I had positive experiences with the instructors and advisers.

Game days were always so much fun, and it brought me so much joy seeing everyone come together and take part in the Tiger Rag, even though I personally didn't get to go to a game.

I was able to meet so many amazing, open-minded people who I initially didn't necessarily expect to meet, as Clemson has a reputation for being a predominantly white, somewhat conservative institution.

Although Clemson wasn't my first choice of college - it honestly probably wasn't even in my top five - I would choose it again in a heartbeat, and I am so eager to come back in the fall to start my sophomore year.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The university has its own police.

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.
