Atmosphere on campus is incredible, but downtown is very small and you need a car to get to a lot of places.

The cat bus system is very good for getting to class and campus in general but as far as using it as your main mode of transportation goes, I wouldn't recommend it. The busses are often crowded and the routes can get lengthy depending on you starting point and destination.

I never lived on campus while at Clemson. I transferred here as a junior and have always live in an apartment or rented a house.

The public transportation is very helpful. The Catbus is always running throughout the day and Tiger Transit is running at night. Catbus is able to take you off campus, but Tiger Transit stays on campus.

The computer situation at clemson is a mixed bag. You can usually find a computer in a lab somewhere on campus but as far as being able to complete university business on with the university via the web goes, thats a pain.

If alcohol or drugs are found in your room, then they are confiscated or disposed of. The students are then assigned a date to meet with the committee of standards and ethics.

Clemson is a fantastic university and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. The only problem is it doesn't have a lot for some students. For me personally as a Psych major, I am very limited with what emphasis I want to go in and what options I have for graduate school at Clemson. A lot of majors here are also closed which makes them very difficult to get into. This is frustrating for a lot of students and limits some people's options.

I hold high standards for myself but there is a great amount of faculty at my disposal and always willing to help. I eventually want to study abroad, shadow, and/or find an internship and our advisors are always more than willing to help.
College Sophomore 2013-02-16T19:44:35Z
I plan to search for an internship or co-op experience so that I may shadow a person who has the job I desire. I hope to get to know the range of my jobs and the every day routine and to be sure it is a good fit for me.

I am in Life Sciences. It is a really difficult section. I am majoring in Biological Sciences and I average between 15 and 17 credit hours a semester. I have some of the most demanding and work time consuming professors but they just try to do what is best for the students. I hope they will send me in the right direction so that I will be able to get into medical school.

The police are very strict about the parking policies. The Residential Assistants are also pretty strict about the hall policies such as having illegal substances in the rooms and the noise levels. Overall this campus is very structured.

I got a substantial amount of financial aid to go toward my schooling. It wasn't enough to cover all of my dues though. I still had to apply for student loans to cover some of my tuition. It was a long process and took a lot of paper work.

Since the campus is built on a mountainous terrain, when it rains, the water puddles up in areas really bad. But on the bright side, there are drain areas for the water to go. Also, when it rains, it isn't just a quick shower, it rains for days at a time. If you decide to go to Clemson, you better buy a rain jacket and rain boots!
College Sophomore 2013-02-10T17:53:44Z
The parking is pretty far away from the residential dorms. Sometimes there is not enough parking for everyone to be able to have a spot. On football game days, every one has to move their car to a field that is tremendously far away from the dorms in order to have parking for the tail gate people. If you are a commuter, it is even worse because you have to arrive on campus early enough to actually get a spot, then you have to walk a far distance in order to get to the buildings that have the student's classes in them. Some of the building are really far away from the parking lot and would take over 30 minutes just to walk that distance.

The cost of eating off campus in the down town area is a little expensive. Even though they do advertise discounts to college students, it is still too prices for a college student like me to eat at those places once a week.

Health & Safety:
I never felt unsafe on campus and security /police are always patrolling campus. There are very few tragic events that happen on campus that threaten the life of students.
College Senior 2013-02-10T16:35:38Z
The off campus housing are many different styles of apartments. These apartment complexes are extremely nice and within 5 minutes from campus driving. CAT buses will pick you up from your apartment and take you to class so that you don't have to drive.
College Senior 2013-02-10T16:34:01Z
The weather at Clemson is typically good weather. It will rain some throughout the week, but classes and buildings are located close to together on campus so walking is not that big of a deal in rain or shine. Also it rarely snows so not being able to make it to class is not an issue.

The gym on campus could be a little bit bigger to accommodate the large student body, but it is a nice facility. There are a lot of free fitness classes held throughout the day. Campus is pretty and is even more beautiful in the Spring when the trees are all blooming. Cooper Library is really big. Sometimes you have to search for a seat, but usually you can find one.
College Junior 2013-02-09T00:06:49Z
Health & Safety:
I usually feel really safe on campus. I feel a little unsafe when I walk back to my on campus apartment at night. However, there are escorts you can get to walk back with you to your dorm or apartment.

Football is king at Clemson. The Fall is always fun with the tailgating and games. Everyone really gets into it. Even if you aren't a football fan when you get here, you will be by the end of your first game. Fraternities and Sororities are big on campus, but there's no need to join them if you don't want to. Sometimes it does feel like you are trapped in this town though. There's not much to do in Clemson, so once football season is over it can get pretty boring. The CAT bus is really convenient for student who don't want to bring there car to school.

Clemson is a well-known international university. On top of reaching out to students across the world, we have different clubs and tons of speeches, lectures, and opportunities to broaden our horizons and thoughts on cultures and races different than our own. Just walk around campus for a day... We have it all!
College Junior 2013-01-30T16:30:32Z
weather is mild. Can get cold for a few days in the winter but nothing bad. In the fall it is still hot and humid. Overall it is great as you don't need to worry too much about snow.

Guys & Girls:
most people are friendly and are there to get a great education. There is a lot to do and its easy to meet people. You will always have the rednecks and the divas in the mix, but it is a great mix of the academic, athletic and social.
College Senior 2013-01-29T03:03:40Z
The computers at Clemson are great. There are computers in the library as well as numerous computer labs all over campus. You can print about 500 black/white pages for free per semester. It is nice to have your own printer in the event you don't want to go on campus to print. But you can print from anywhere on campus, including personal computer, and then swipe your card in the library or computer labs and print anywhere.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
