Campus Food: Clemson tries very hard to get a variety of foods in the dining halls. They are updating the menu all the time to accommodate dietary needs like gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian, and other food allergy/ dietary restrictions. However, it does get old, and it is hard to find healthy options sometimes because everything starts to taste the same.

Campus Housing: Many of the dorms are a bit cramped, but honestly are a good deal nicer than dorms I've seen elsewhere, especially Stadium Suties and Clemson House. Everything is within walking distance and if not there are free buses than can take you around town. Most everyone on campus is quite nice especially the professors, if not then they are usually polite.

Off-Campus Housing: My friends has a really nice condo relatively close to camps. The places closer to campus are obviously more expensive. There are a lot of options and variety but distances from campus is a struggle especially if you have an early class. I'm thinking of riding a bike to my classes next year from my off-campus housing because parking is difficult on campus.

Off-Campus Dining: I love the variety there is downtown just by walking not even a quarter of a mile. There were also coupon booklets handed out that had great deals for downtown restaurants. I also love how late Cookout stays open because I love milkshakes and food in general.

4 College Freshman

Administration: It reasonable and I feel extremely safe on campus but sometimes I feel like the police/safety people are concerned about things that don't really warrant that much concern while other things do warrant more concern yet their concern is not there.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I think the conditions for getting in-state as an out-of-state student should be more flexible. For example, I played three sports in high school, was a captain for two, I was the Vice President of the Senior Student Council, I was involved in NHS, I had a 4.0, and I was a tutor. Yet, I got a 31 as opposed to a 32 on the ACT and that's why I didn't get in-state here at Clemson, which, in my mind, I somewhat unfair.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: It all really depends on what you put into it as a student. The options for all types of parties are available one campus but you have to be willing as a student to find what you like.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: I like how it comes from local farms. Sometimes things get repetitive but there is a good variety most times. The speed the food is made at sometimes lacks unnecessarily. I love how smoothies are now being made in Harcombe in the morning because it is a quick but healthy choice.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Every staff member works really hard to make sure we are comfortable. The cleaning lady on my floor checks in on my roommate and me and we have conversations. Each one is very friendly and always asks how my day is going.

5 College Student

Campus Food: The food at Clemson University is awesome! The cooks are excellent!

5 College Student

Campus Housing: The campus housing at Clemson University is extremely accommodating.

Athletics: Clemson Football. It's kind of like the life-blood of most of the people, students and locals, at Clemson. We bleed orange, and if you attend a football game, you understand why. The fans are loud and loyal, the opponents are tough, the games are fun, and the team is strong. I'm not a sports person, I'm a band geek. But there is nothing, I repeat, NOTHING like a game in Death Valley. However, while football is the highlight, other sports are pretty big, too, especially basketball, baseball, and soccer. There are tons of options for intramural sports, as well as club sports. All together, Clemson is a very active and athletic school.

Off-Campus Housing: Living off-campus has been a blast. I rented through tiger properties with an early listing, and got an incredibly price for rent. I chose my roommates, which has worked out well. While i do have to drive, and chose an area that doesn't have direct access to a public transportation route, there are tons of options that are close to the bus route. In addition, there are plenty of options near to grocery stores, and even some downtown. However, if you want proximity to shopping and the stadium, you're going to pay more.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus dining is really great! There are tons of options that range in variety, type of cuisine, healthiness, and cost. There are options that are directly downtown, within easy walking distance of campus. There are also a fantastic number of fast-food and sit-down options that are within driving distance (just a few minutes) of campus if you want to have an outing. In addition, Tiger-to-Go will deliver food from tons of local restaurants.

4 College Junior

Administration: The strictness on campus works really well for me, because on campus activities (in my opinion) should be very academically focuses. Therefore, administration being strict about alcohol and drug use is important to me, because such use would interfere with my success on campus. Off-campus, people having fun isn't a problem for me. In addition, they aren't SO strict that people can't enjoy themselves on campus, as long as they are reasonable, and somewhat quiet. The enforcement of the honor code is also incredibly important to me. Why? Because I'm the one that would get cheated on, so, enforcement of the honor code only benefits me.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: I have had a good experience with Financial Aid at Clemson. I received aid to attend as an out-of-state student, and maintaining those scholarships has been a breeze. In addition, I was easily able to receive federal aid through the school, and they accepted outside scholarships and loans easily (as long as they were notified somewhat early on before the semester). My advice? Start early, get finished early, and contact them any time EXCEPT last minute, or it will be a hassle.

Campus Housing: Living in the dorms freshman year was definitely a great experience! I lived in a living learning community, which made access to people taking the same classes as me effortless. Not only did it help me to study, but it helped me to find friends with similar interests to my own, which forged friendships that have lasted my entire college career. I would definitely recommend a living learning community if it is an option. The cleanliness of the place, other than perhaps bad roommates, was impeccable. The janitorial staff is amazing at Clemson. The amenities are probably where Clemson is lacking the most, but if you are an honors student, the Holmes Dorm is better than most, with its own study rooms, study lounge, board games, keurig access, and free printing. All of the dorms have ready access to washers and dryers, and most have study spaces available. The housing process itself, I cannot speak as directly to, for after my first year I moved off campus due to cost savings (which, at Clemson, are about the same as other colleges if you stay on campus). I cannot deny that living on campus was convenient for classes and food options.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: They need more options especially for upperclassmen

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: It could be better where is olive garden

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Everybody would like more money and I'm no different

2 College Sophomore

Party Scene: It's not a major city so the nightlife is meh

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The bad thing is that Clemson is not a major city so there's not really a night scene unless you want to travel to other towns. Getting housing close to campus is a little hard but the prices are reasonable for the most part

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are many places to choose from ranging in price and quality.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of food options downtown and on tiger boulevard.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I feel safe on campus and the rules are clearly enforced.

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.
