Off campus dining is affordable with many options. The only problem with off campus dining is the difficulty in finding vegetarian and organic options.

I Love My School! Once you're a part of the Clemson family, it's impossible to not love it. The majority of students are fit, happy, and beautiful! Everyone has lots of school spirit and football games in Death Valley are the best. The campus is full of rich history, and walking across campus to class reminds me why I chose it. You definitely have to study to do well in classes, but it usually doesn't interfere with your social life. Go tigers!

The Perfect Balance – Clemson is HOT from March-September. I think having the lake nearby cools campus off in the winter.

Not a Lot of Healthy Options – Every kind of fast food imaginable in Clemson. Lots of good tex-mex and fast japanese. Quality grocery stores and the abundance of restaurants make it easy to find something to eat if the dining hall food isn't cutting it. Lots of fried southern food.

Something for Everyone – Huge variety of options, most are far away from campus, but practically everyone is off campus so you are still a part of the Clemson community despite being a few miles off campus. Nearly impossible to find places close to Downtown, and the quality isn't as good but the location convenience is something to go after senior or junior year.

Only for Freshman and Sophomores – The freshmen dorms are pretty standard. Off campus options for upperclassmen are about the same price as living on campus with many more amenities. Sophomores: unless you are living in sorority/fraternity housing or you enter the housing lottery and get Stadium Suites, moving off campus is recommended.

Lots of Options – Sometimes it feels like they are price gouging you, but it is possible to negotiate and there are some great places to live close to campus (some on the water!)

There are lots of dining options off campus for you to enjoy for very reasonable prices. From Waffle House, to the fine dining atmosphere of Pixie and Bill's and Calhoun Corners, there is something for every palette and budget. However, if your budget is limited, it might feel that you eat at the same places much of the time. Luckily, there is a weekly farmers market where you can buy fresh food and cook on your own. But honestly, with all the options you have (pot belly deli being my personal favorite,) the possibilities are endless.

I haven't attended Clemson yet, but from what I've heard it is there if you look for it.

Greek life is very prominent and everyone should at least consider it. It is a great way to make friends, especially if you are out of state!

It's a Family – It is just so high energy all the time! The games are unbelievable and everyone comes with something in common, that they love Clemson, so there is an automatic unification. They say over and over that it's the Clemson family and it really feels like it. Classes can be hard, but the help is there if you put in a little effort. They want you to succeed, mostly because it makes the University look better, but no matter motive the resources are there.

There are plenty of bars downtown for 21+. Frat parties are the most popular for freshman girls. Beyond freshman year there's more of a switch to house parties. Transportation is rough, unless you have a car or a friend with one, then your kind of our of luck. There are also Clemson Live events on campus which give away free stuff and can be fun. There is also a movie theatre that shows movies in between theaters and dvd release and a couple pretty big concerts a year.

Cat Bus and Tiger Transit – To get around we have the cat bus that can take people to off campus housing, stores, and downtown. There are also buses for around campus but walking or riding a bike/ longboard are better for that. At night tiger transit is a great way to get around campus and to your car. Like I said though it's definitely a walking campus. Getting to the Airport is another story.

Humid but Mild – Summer classes are a little rough, but during the school year the weather is usually nice. The winters don't get too cold, don't expect any snow days. The campus is almost always green. Bring rain boat though!
College Senior 2012-07-11T20:38:52Z
Plenty of Spots but Far Away – There are always spaces open but it is difficult to find a spot anywhere close. It takes around five to ten minutes to walk from a spot to the campus edge.
College Senior 2012-07-11T20:33:55Z
Great Friends in a Great Place – Since Clemson is not near much, students are always around. Downtown is always buzzing and Bowman Field is full of fun. Fike gym has tons of equipment and classes. There is always something to do with fun people.

Easy, Affordable, and Convenient for All – There are myriad options and many landlords will bargain and haggle with students. They are all as convenient as students want whether they want to be near school, near the grocery, or any place they prefer. Security is great in most places and easily accessible. Parking is easy in some places where students like to mingle and parking is restricted for guests in other places where students prefer to have less visitors.

The public health program is prett hard to get into. You have to have atleast a 3.0 and maintain atleast a 3.0 while in the program. If your grades are not too good, you could go in undecided and then get your grades up and get into a major that requires a 3.0
College Senior 2012-07-10T20:31:13Z
Very Home-Y Feeling – Clemson is set in a small rural town with beautiful countryside. The atmosphere on campus is very close-knit and positive. There are numerous activities to be involved in and the academic programs are first-rate.

Civil Engineering Program – I really enjoy civil engineering and I would do it again. The professors are very helpful and the classes are challenging and complete. You learn a lot from them. My career goals are to graduate with a bachelor's and then go back for a master's. I have little concern for finding a job.
College Senior 2012-07-10T20:23:04Z
Engineering Interships – My internship was very helpful and it gave me a good idea of real world conditions. I would recommend that anyone try to find one. The pay was very good ($15 per hour) and the time commitment was just like a regular job. My responsibility level was based on my experience level so it wasn't much. Overall, very satisfied.

The dining halls on campus are pretty good. The only problem is that they tend to serve the same thing every day. However, the dining halls to have some nights where there are themes like carnival food or baseball food.

The computer labs are good. If you have to print, though, it will cost.
College Junior 2012-07-09T13:44:50Z
Personally, I don't believe the campus is very strict. Any violence that occurs is quickly handled and students are notified about any campus threats immeadiately.

Clemson offers a lot of programs and they have good facilities to help you.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
