At Claflin University everyone is full of the scoolspirt. Everyone that attend this school make this school family oriented. They welcome everybody in and make them feel as if they are at home. There are some students that think about the school in a negative way, while others think of thee school in a positive. There are plenty of fun activities going on around campus; such as, movie night and global night. As far as the professors, they try to make learning as fun as possible by relating the topic discuss in class to something in reality that is interesting or funny. They will help you out as much as possible but, you have to actually be working hard in their class. Overall this is a excellent school to go to as long as you enjoy being in a small family like community.
Great school with small, personal classes. Best HBCU around.
The social scene is not the best but Claflin is a good school. It's what you make it. If you want to learn and have fun you will, if you come in with a negative mind set it won't be that great for you. It opens the door to a lot of opportunities like jobs, internships, and conferences.
Claflin is a great school with overall very friendly students and faculty. I'm an out of state student but I feel right at home and they make you feel like you're never alone. They have great resources and everything. I feel like I came to the right school because although I didn't push myself hard enough in high school, they're pushing me hard now at Claflin, got me out of my comfort zone and feeling great about myself and the people around me. Claflin looks great on people's applications and I talked to some alumni and by the looks of things, Claflin got people some really good paying jobs. Most of the alumni I talked to are doing great for themselves so I'm using that as lead way. I recommend this school to everyone, especially out of state students.

At Claflin University my eyes have seen much. What I have learned here is irreplaceable. Here, I have learned how to examine people. I have learned how to manage myself. Before I came to school I had an eerie perception on what college was going to be. I assumed the workload was going to be too much and I was destined to fail, but at Claflin I learned that responsibility can take you farther than intelligence. If you had 4.0 grade point average in high school, but you get to college and sleep in all your classes you are bound to fail. Yet if you come with a 3.4 grade point average and you have the work ethic of a 4.0 student you will succeed. This has been the most valuable phase of my life because I am away from home and have no one to blame for my mistakes but myself. I do not have anyone to account for but myself. When I succeed it will be because of the hard work and dedication Keiko put in to her experience, and not anyone else, simply because there is only Keiko.
Of course, anyone not willing to commit to doing their school work should not attend any college for it is a waste of time and money! If a student is in to the party life then Claflin is not for them. Someone who has a problem with freshman curfew will definitely have a problem with Claflin. Claflin is not a big school so if they are looking for large classes they will be disappointed. Claflin is also a private institution and we carry a lot of school spirit.
The worst thing about my school is the fact that it is such a leader in scientific research but the facilities and equipment for the students are so out of date and just worn that some students are unable to appreciate what the sciences are really about.
Keynote speakers we have that come to the school to speak.
Claflin University is unique because she wants her students to leave here succesfully and as a leader. Under the leadership of President Henry Tisdale and First Lady Tisdale, Claflin envisions greatness and success. The theme of this university is "The World Need,s Visionaries". The people here are friendly and helpful. I have never felt so warm and safe being at Claflin. Its a wonderful university and I would recommend it to any student! When you leave from here people will know you are a Claflin student because you will be a leader and a visionary to the world!
Before coming to Claflin University I wish I would of known what i qualified for as far as finacial aid. Also, it would have been better to research what all oppertunities they have to offer.
There is no set type of person that attends this school; those that choose to come here are transformed into what we call "Claflinites". A Claflinite is a product of Claflin teachings and policies who is able to be picked out of a crowd - they are people who carry themselves in a respectable manner and who treat others the same way.
The awesomeness of my school is very awesome.
My classmates are very goal oriented.
Claflin is family friendly, and everyone is close to each other.
My School is best known for being the first Historical Black College or University in the state of South Carolina. We are also known for our world-renowned choir. In addition to our vocal program, we have a wonderful wind ensemble that has played at multiple presidential inaugurations. Academically, we have a great science programs and majors. We have one of the most aesthetically pleasing campuses in the state.
There's nothing fustrating about my school. I love it here!!!
the melt downs and calabash
Claflin is a great school for people who don't want to be overwhelmed coming into college. Claflin students have ALOT of school pride. I will always remember how they welcome the incoming freshmen for the upcoming fall semester. Claflin do have curfew for freshmen students but after you get used to it and start to follow it, they usually extend it.
In Claflin's classes, the professors know their students by their full name. At Claflin, there are many ways to get tutoring or help for classes. Students are competitive but only just so they can get the best grade.
At my school, there really aren't stereotypes. Everyone is like one big family. The school is very small so everyone sticks together.
Classes at Claflin depend on your major. Biology majors have the most classes per semester. But mass communication has the least around 12 credit hours.
