Going to school at Clemson University has been such a good experience so far. At such a large school, its surprising that you still get a family vibe. The entire town is involved in the school, especially sports. There are so many interesting people from all over the world doing amazing things here. its a great place to be.

Oh Yeah, School's Awesome! I'm not completely sure what I want to do with my life, or what my career goals are, but I am very happy with the program I'm in now, Environmental science. It's fun and the professors and advisors are very helpful. And I'm definitely not worried about finding a career after this. Everyone here is so helpful and willing to give you internships and anything to get you your dream job.

So Many Options – Mainly, football season. It is incredible, nothing like being in Clemson on game day. It is really something to experience. There are so many academic programs available; you can basically do anything here. There are so many people that you are bound to find people just like you, no matter what you are interested in. You will find life-long friends here.

Right off campus is a number of dining options. You can just walk right downtown, practically on campus so its not far, and there is a large variety or options from sushi bar to pizza places, even italian restaurants. And if you want to branch out just a little, you can hop in the car and drive about 2 minutes down the road and get pretty much any fast food you want plus some.

The current parking situation is fairly conveinent. Parking lots are generally no more than a five minute walk from any dorm and if you look for a spot at a reasonable time, you will find a decent place to park. A new master plan, however, looms in the horizon. New parking garages will add to student and employee conveience, as these garages are to be placed centrally in campus.

Guys & Girls:
Yoga Pants Are in – There are people from around the country on campus, bur for the most part, people fit into a few broad groups. Many of the girls at Clemson are in a sorority and dress very much alike - yoga pants (which are quite fitting) and a t-shirt - of which I have no complaints. There are several groups of "good 'ol boys" at Clemson, a lot of whom can be seen with the aforementioned girls.

Variety in Location – There exists a great variety of apartments and townhouses off-campus in the area. The college-operated off-campus housing can be quite expensive, but that is expected, as these are the closet to campus and are among the most conveinent. Other off-campus housing opportunities are available on a per-major basis - next year there will be an Architecture housing option in which people in the major can room with or alongside others in the same major who understand our needs and difficulties.

Academic Integrity – They will catch you if you try to cheat. They have to post the academic integrity on every syllabus

Viewed as Stuck up and Buying Friends – You always see them together. it like they have nothing else

Lively and Tolerated – I would say over 50 percent of all students go out of age or not.

Clemson has a very awesome campus and good manners.

The bus system is good, and TIger Transit will take you anywhere on campus at night.

It seems like almost all of my friends who are in-state have South Carolina scholarships. It is much less common for out of state students to get a good scholarship if they are an above average student. If you do really well in college, they might give you a very small scholarship for the next year. It's also hard to get financial aid unless your family is desperate for it.

While most of the academic buildings are getting older, there are plenty of other facilities that are newly renovated and high scale. The gym is fantastic with so many different types of activities and classes to offer. The student union has a bowling alley which I really enjoy. There are several dining halls along with fast food places scattered evenly around campus for our enjoyment.

Health & Safety:
I always feel completely safe walking anywhere on Clemson's campus at any time of the day, even in the middle of the night. Clemson police do have an escort service called Tiger Transit that gives rides to students when it becomes dark. Clemson is a small, quaint town with very friendly residents and students.

Like a War – The parking at Clemson is insane! There are not a lot of visitor spots, so if you're going to park on campus you better make sure you have either a temporary pass or an official student/employee/commuter pass. The student parking lots are kind of far away from classes. The employee lots are nearer to the classes, and if you park there you get a ticket. The parking services are nicknamed the Parking Nazis.

Amazing Atmosphere – The atheletics at Clemson are amazing. So maybe the football team didn't win the Orange Bowl this year. That doesn't stop the students from supporting the team. Fridays are Solid-Orange days - everyone wears an orange shirt. Game days almost feel electric with excitement. The first thing you see when you walk outside is tailgaters. Tons of them. So. Much. Orange. Everyone is so excited and happy. It feels like so much at Clemson is centered toward the sports teams. There are many exciting traditions for games, too. Although football is the biggest sport around here, people get excited for basketball and other sports as well. The school has many intramural and club sports that the students can participate in.

I haven't had an internship and don't plan on having one. I'm going into the job market immediately so that I can have income.

Parking is not the best. They shut-down parking lots for special events on campus which makes finding a place very difficult

Dream School – Clemson has turned out to be all that I believed college would be. The sense of family is prevalent from the staff and faculty to the students and parents. Everyone wants for the students to succeed and enjoy their experience at the university, as well as prepare for future life endeavors. My overall experience here has been excellent and I look forward to spending more time here.

Lets Celebrate – Greek life here at Clemson seems to be surrounded around, parties, special speakers, and community events. Its a very positive atmosphere and it comes with a lot of excitement. he Greek life usually has something going on at least 3 days of the week for the general public.

Health & Safety:
Taking an Extra Step – The safety here is great. Extra steps are taken to ensure that everyone stays safe. For example Tiger Transit is a busing system used after 6pm to take people to different places on campus. They also wait for you to get into buildings/cars. There is also safety patrol and the Clemson police that monitor campus and dorm halls during the day and night. Other security measures are taken, which causes the student body to feel secure on campus at all times.

The acedmics programs are very helpful. They supply extra help such as SI leaders and TAs (Teacher Assistants).
College Junior 2012-01-23T00:14:30Z
Don't Have a Car – I do not drive so I don't really know how the parking situation works. The cat bus is available for the Clemson area and the tiger transit is available for the Clemson campus at night.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
