The staff in the housing department is incredible, and I have enjoyed lving on campus.

Living on campus at Clemson is a great experience. The college does a wonderful job of pairing compatible students to live together and everyone within the dorm is always open to meeting new faces. Dorm room doors are always open and often dorms collect groups of good friends from the same floor.

The student center is mainly a place where students can study in the small lounge or get food at the cafe. I personally am there a lot for my work with one of the university's big six organizations, which has many events within the student center as well as it being the location for the organization's office.
The workout facility for all students, Fike, is very well kept, although it is small for the size of the university. After winter break it is almost impossible to find an open machine, but if you go year round during the odd hours of the day or night it is a wonderful place to workout and exercise. It also has great hours, being open until midnight every night.

The weather at Clemson is amazing when it is warm, but my freshman year it rained constantly, at least every week if not multiple times a week. This made it difficult to convince myself to go to the library, where I have a much easier time studying, or across campus to Hendrix to get some paperwork done for the Organization I am a part of.

My school is very clean and safe, which I personally love because feeling like I am living in a safe environment allows me to focus more on my studies and social aspects. However, some of the college's grading policies are confusing and unclear. Sometimes students receive a teacher who not qualified to teach the class, or is very unorganized and disrupts the students learning of the specific course's information.

Guys & Girls:
There are plenty of guys to choose from, but girls are a bit lacking -- not counting at parties and such.

Parking for residents is fairly decent; there are plenty of lots, and the one right next to the football stadium is close to everything else; the only problem with that one is that during football season students are required to move their cars by the Friday before a game.

The fall is almost always cloudless and warm, with occasional rain or cold days. The spring is absolutely beautiful: clouds, pleasant climate, green everywhere.

The varsity sports at Clemson University are all popular and widely supported. The intramural sports are, for the most part, just as huge -- the only exception being the club that I am involved in, fencing. As it is an intramural club, all the recruiting and most of the funding is done by its own members, and since fencing is not as popular as many other intramural sports, this can hurt our attendance. Otherwise, though, I have no objections to Clemson's athletic programs.

Pretty good athletic program and campus wide support. Go Tigers!

Though attempts are made to diversify the university there is still room for divesification in student activities which sometimes fill a litle cliquish.

Downtown is small but it has much to offer. There are several different clubs to attend at night which are fun and get pretty packed. Also during the day there are really good places to eat lunch and pick up some Clemson gear. Taking a trip to Greenville for shopping and such is also always an option with it being so close. For the more outdoorsy people there are tons of places to hike or hang out by the lake, too. There really are options to satisfy everyone.

I do not currently have a car at school, however, a lot of my friends do. I know getting a ticket for staying in a time limited spot is highly likely and frustrating. It is convenient to have a car to take grocery shopping or just to leave campus for a weekend, but I have found it is certainly not necessary. Anything you really need is accessible on campus and only requires a short walk.

The computers offered at the library are plentiful, up to date, and function well. There are even some macs offered depending on your preference or software needs. Printing is also very convenient; there are accessible printers in almost every building and at least one on almost every floor of the library, which is super convenient. I do wish there were printers in the dorms, though. As for internet connection, having wifi on campus is awesome and definitely saved my cell phone bill. However, very often at the end of the semester my laptop would get disconnected from the internet for no reason periodically, which was frustrating.
College Sophomore 2013-05-09T17:38:15Z
I give Clemson an A- because while there is not much noticeable ethnic/racial, economic, political, religious, or sexual orientation diversity everyone is well accepted regardless. Or maybe there is a lot of diversity and everyone is just so understanding that other people posses different beliefs and circumstances that it is not a big deal.

I was a transfer, so I am not eligible for any next semester

I received the financial aid I deserved, but had to do some work on my own to get the extra dough.

The houses off-campus are incredible. They vary for cheap apartments, to expensive full blown personal houses. Clemson offers everything you would want.

It's rainy a few days here and there, but the beauty of the campus during the sunny days totally make up for it.
College Sophomore 2013-05-09T01:47:39Z
I love everything about Clemson. The buildings and facilities are top notch (except for a few dorm room, hence the A not the A+) The students are friendly, and the teachers are extremely helpful. The Clemson experience is better than I would have ever imagine.

Financial aid was available, but getting scholarships was nearly impossible.

No matter what college you go to, there will almost always be a drug scene. Fortunately, Clemson's is not to large. Consuming alcohol is a lot more popular here than doing drugs; but even then, it's not that bad. It's still easy to have a good social life and get involved without doing drugs or consuming alcohol. The peer pressure can get a little heavy depending on who you associate with. If you want to get involved with greek life, the drinking is everywhere. But there is the alternative of rushing a Christian fraternity for guys. BYX is a Christian frat here and they are some of the best guys I know. At Clemson, the drug and alcohol scene is present but not too visible. It's definitely avoidable.

Having to eat dining hall food get's old. It's not too bad but you just start to run out of options. Schilletter and harcombe have made progress since my freshman year with providing a wider variety of foods but it still hasn't impressed me. The overall quality is pretty good, I just wish that the canteen, chilis, and other on campus restaurants would count towards meal plans to change things up.
College Junior 2013-05-08T17:23:09Z
When it comes to visitations, Clemson is very lenient. It's more of a personal cooperation with whoever your living with rather than with the university. Clemson's alcohol and drug policies are more strict. If caught dealing or in possession of drugs/alcohol then the cops with be called. I don't know why anyone living in freshman dorms would even bother having alcohol or drugs on campus. The majority of those at Clemson who do take part in underage drinking/drugs do so off campus. It's smarter that way. Overall Clemson is pretty average when it comes to their policies and strictness.

Financial aid was very accessible and the people working in the financial aid office were very helpful
Sorry, there are no reviews.
