What are the most popular student activities/groups?
There are plenty of clubs for even the shyest of the shy out there, and if you give it some time, you can find a group or organization you truly feel connected to and want to join. Trust me. IF you want it, you can find it. Dorm life is just like anywhere else, and a great place to meet people you're freshman year. Athletic events are HUGE, I think clemson is one of the biggest jock schools in the country, hands down. People show up in the masses for women's/men's soccer games (1,000-2,500+), football (90,000), men's basketball (13,000+), baseball (6,000 people+). Mass support. Greek life comprises about 25% of the population. I met my friends I have now from a variety of places...orientation, clubs, classes, sports. You'll find that freshman year especially everyone is eager to meet people and find their potential "new best friend"...trust me. Party scene is just as big as anywhere else if not bigger, especially during football season. Spring time, cops crack down a little more but it's still a pretty big scene. They usually have a good amount of activities/sponsored events on the weekends that don't involve drinking. The Edgar's student union is usually pretty active Friday nights in the spring and includes bowling, comics who come do stand up, pool, video games, etc.
