What is your overall opinion of this school?

I attended Clemson as a visiting student for a semester from Canada. The pedagogy was of extremely poor quality. For example, I had classes where every student was given an 'A' and the course material was just watching films. These were public policy courses, not film studies. The students were kinda dumb, in a very stereotypical Southern way. Political leanings were almost entirely Republican, and dissent was met with aggression. I would not recommend this institution if your goal is higher education - the workload and quality of teaching was lower than my public Canadian high school. However, students were generally nice, and the party culture was decent. The city is boring and racist, and the nearby area is frightening.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Clemson is a place where you feel at home even you're not technically at home. The close sense of community, spirit and involvement are the key aspects of why I chose Clemson. Once you step foot in Tigertown, there really is no turning back. The campus speaks for itself, and the students you get to know are amazing. Not everyone in college has a feeling of family, but at Clemson that's a common factor. The faculty also are at the top of their game, and there are always opportunities to get involved and active on Clemson. I'm not sure I could be anywhere else other than Clemson.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Clemson is a phenomenal school with fantastic students, dedicated teachers, and a surplus of activities to do and clubs to get involved in. I've yet to meet a teacher who don't want their students to succeed or fails to provide resources to help them succeed. There are many tutors available for all subjects at almost any time. The studies are rigorous, but what else can you expect from the top ranked school for sports and studies in South Carolina?

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Why did you choose Clemson? This is a question I am frequently asked, seeing as I am from Columbia, where the University of South Carolina is right around the corner. My response is always, why wouldn't I choose Clemson? Clemson has the aesthetic and academic appeal that any college student could ever dream of. Lake Hartwell is right around the corner, the campus itself is a work of art, and the culture of Clemson University is undeniably the most welcoming and family oriented culture of any college in the nation. When reviewing a University, three things come to mind that need to be addressed: academics, sports, and culture. Clemson’s academics are incomparable to other rival universities in South Carolina. According to bestcolleges.com, Clemson is ranked number one in the state of South Carolina. Clemson has an outstanding graduation rate of 82.31% which is remarkable for the rigor of the coursework provided by the university. Clemson offers 80 undergraduate and 110 graduate degree programs, providing an enormous amount of opportunities and options for current and potential students. In regards to the sports aspect of the university, there is no other place to be than in Death Valley on any fall Saturday. After winning the 2016 College Football National Championship, Clemson University is ranked number one in the College Football League. This is an outstanding accomplishment for the university and state of South Carolina as a whole. In terms of academics and sports, Clemson is a university that continues to make South Carolina proud. Lastly, the culture of Clemson University is remarkable. There is no better phrase that represents this college than the repeated phrase by Clemson’s head football coach, Dabo Swinney. Swinney constantly repeats to his players that they must be “All-In.” This saying is incredibly representative of the culture of Clemson. We are a school that is more than a school. More than a city. We are a family. Clemson is a family that is “All-In” for each other. When times are hard and when they are bright, the Clemson culture is one that outshines any other in the nation. So, why did I choose Clemson? You tell me. sources: http://www.bestcolleges.com/features/best-colleges-in-south-carolina/ http://www.clemson.edu/admissions/undergraduate/faq.html

Really Awesome University I would recommend! The mountains are nearby and there are some many clubs and student organization that if you're not having fun, it's your own fault! Greek life is kinda of important but you can have fun without joining and by staying active.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Clemson is an awesome school. There are so many opportunities to stay active and involved in campus, and always smiling, encouraging faces around. Although some classes are large professors always are available for help outside of class, and encourage you to come meet with them so they can get to know you and help you achieve your goals. Clemson University really is like a big family. Go Tigers!

Clemson University is a school that excels in all aspects. Whether it be in academics, social life, or athletics, this school goes above and beyond to be the best it can be. Personally, as student, I have been able to see and experience this first-hand and it has been a real treat to be in this environment. I can't wait to see what the next years have in store!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Best place on earth! I am a current student at Clemson and could not be happier with my decision to attend this school. The academics are great, classes aren't too big, and professors make an effort to be accessible. The school spirit is my favorite part, game days can't be beat!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a very diverse and open-minded school. There is flaws as there is in every school. However, the sense of community and family always is apparent. It has a very long way to go before it becomes a five star school in my eyes. However, it is well on its way.
