2 College Junior

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

1 College Sophomore

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

2 College Freshman

Diversity: Not much diversity, this past school year faced many issues concerning racism against blacks

2 College Sophomore

Diversity: Diversity isn't all that great here. Its in the country in south carolina so you can't really expect much! If your a minority you won't be treated the same as a white person here. Unless of course your a student athlete. Student athletes are treated like royalty no matter what race, religion, ethnic background etc.

Diversity: Everyone is pretty accepting. It is rare to hear racial slurs from anyone.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Students find that, when looking around campus, they all look pretty much the same. They also note that foreign students and students of similar ethnicity tend to form their own groups. Although Clemson has students from many different countries, they make up a small proportion of the predominantly white student body population.

Don't expect to see much diversity when you come to Clemson. Keep in mind that the school is located in rural northwestern South Carolina-not exactly a melting pot for diversity. If diversity is an important factor in selecting your school, you might want to look elsewhere.
