5 College Junior

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.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: GOOOO TIGERS!! Football season is the best. School spirit is very strong here and the fan support is phenomenal.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Clemson Football is a huge focus in student life.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Football is the most important and in most cases everything else almost never gets as much attention.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletic involvement in school are just as big as varsity sports in the school. Intramural sports are played so much throughout the school because it is something to take our minds our of school for some time. School spirit during the sporting activities is over the roof! Clemson is always excited about school spirit during sports or whatever the activities. Students are involved in whatever they can get their hands on. They're always finding things to do around campus.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Clemson draws a lot of students who actively participate in or love to watch sports. Those freshmen that arrive without an understanding of the Clemson athletic tradition find themselves in awe at the first home football game while 80,000 fans cheer on the Tigers as they rush down the Hill, a grassy area behind the home goalposts. Weekends at Clemson in the fall revolve around football, and students here wouldn't have it any other way.

Sports are a way of life at Clemson. It is perhaps one of the best schools for you to watch or play any sport imaginable, from Division I to intramural. Club and intramural sports give you the opportunity to try something you wouldn't believe a university would even sponsor-just don't tell your parents you're training with the Dixie Skydivers.

Most Popular Sports
Football, basketball, and baseball draw the largest crowds.
Most Overlooked Teams

Clemson students' blood runs orange, espcially for their football and basketball teams. Sweatshirts, T-shirts, and logo shorts bearing the Clemson Tiger are a required part of every students wardrobe.
Getting Tickets
All students receive free tickets to athletic events. However, for some big football and basketball games, you must stand in line a few weeks prior to the event to wait for your tickets.
Best Place to Take a Walk
Walk the perimeter of the campus-or jog, bike, or roller-blade as a lot of students like to do.
