I absolutely love Clemson. My entrepreneurship experience fuels my interest in working for a company focused on innovation and sustainability through a new way of thinking. The Calhoun Honors College at Clemson offers unparalleled opportunities for me to achieve this goal. One such opportunity is the EUREKA! research program, where I would like to conduct academic research on investment analysis for a groundbreaking company. Clemson has endless resources to help students like me achieve their dream.
I love this school! I went there for the senior band day and got to march with the band, and I had a blast! Everyone was so nice to me, and the campus is amazing! I also love how there's a strip of stores and restaurants on the campus and a lake with a beach! The school spirit is very present and I could feel it on the senior band day as I was marching in the parade.
I think it is a good school but its gonna be awbhile before i actually get to college. So im taking my time wiht looking for where i wanna go. In the next three years i will continiue my reseasrch on schools and hoepfully this is the one i choose. The tour overall was well i think ic ould have gotten around more.
Well, Clemson was not my first choice, I'll start there. There were other colleges I liked a bit more and I would not have applied to Clemson had they not sent me an application fee waiver in the mail. As soon as I realized that I wanted to pursue food science, my options were severely limited as Clemson was the only in state school that had my major. I couldn't afford to part with the in-state scholarships I had worked for.
Clemson is competitive to get into, especially for in-state students, who are really only accepted by Clemson to meet a quota. The recent success of college football has caused this surge in interest, but I imagine that as the team comes off of a high, desire to attend the school will decline.
Because of the heavy emphasis on sports, I do often feel a little out of place. I chose Clemson for academic and financial reasons, so it can be frustrating to be continuously questioned by peers and older adults alike why I bothered to attend the university if I'm not interested in football.
Dorms are expensive and show age. I liked my dorm (I lived in Young Hall), but the restrooms could use renovations. The cafeteria food is not great most of the time, but sometimes you get lucky (the gyros from Schilletter are pretty good imo). Taking walks around campus is nice. If you are bothered by frat boys, truck boys, or sorority girls, go to a different school. Downtown is nice, but bar crawling happens every week starting Thursday and people will be drunk on campus pretty much any night of the week. Walls are thin, so you can hear rampant but pathetic sounding fornication.
I really like my classes and the majority of the professors I have had so far. Professors will root for your success, but you do have to be persistent with reaching out and contacting them for help, info, or opportunities. Networking is very important, and Clemson is known for having an almost cult like networking system if you are able to interact with the right people at the right time.
I do not plan on leaving. Every school has its flaws. I could get into the issues with housing, building care, racism and underrepresentation for minorities, and the blind eye to Title 9 violations, but a Google search should suffice if you're really curious.
Good luck. If anyone reads this, I'd be happy to talk to you further and help the best I can. My school email is [email protected]

I would tell myself to study more, I never had to in high school and I wish I had tried more during my freshman year. I also wish I had participated in certain clubs from freshman year onwards, and maybe broken out of my shell a little more.
All of my classmates are motivated to do well.
I think most people feel that all college students want to do is party and get drunk.
There is a huge element of preppiness.
Clemson is a school where everyone wears orange no matter if its a football Saturday in the fall, or a rainy day of class.
I would definitely recommend checking out your professors before signing up for their classes just because there are always duds at any school. I have had exceptional teachers as well as awful ones. The key is learning how to avoid the bad ones. Studying is a large element of campus life, just not on game days. Compared to most other schools I would say Clemson is more serious and more academically focused.
Everyone goes to football games, no matter who we play. Not a large perecentage of the student body is greek, but there are definently benefits. I waited 3 semesters before going greek so I can say that while not greek, there is still plenty to do (house parties, bars, etc.), and if in a fraternity or sorority, you still can go to non-greek parties, you just have a group to go to Carolina Cup with, and formals to go to.
The reason that I picked Clemson University over other schools that I was accepted to was because it has a large population but not too spread out. On my visits it seemed to me that everyone was just a little happier. The weather here is great, and I liked there industrial engineering program. And last but certainly not least, Clemson has a lot of good sport team, GO TIGERS!
The best thing about my school is that it is not too restrictive. You can come here and be yourself because there is plenty of space.
Clemson is a large college in a small town with a lot of technical focused academics and big sports emphasis.
Someone who isn't career oriented. Someone who lacks motivation to succeed in life. Someone who only wants to attend college based on what television portrays. Someone who is not interested in school.
I wish i had known that clemson's social environment was based mostly on greek affiliation. there aren't too many other options. I also wish i had know about the lack of diversity within the campus and the high degree of conservativism. These southern born individulas aren't very open minded with religion and politics which can be offensive. I didnt know that a lot of people leave Clemson on the weekends either to get away after football season is over.
Too much drinking. Go to class and learn.
The type of person that should attend this school is someone who is serious in getting a good education, good career, and a successful life.
The thing that I like least about Clemson is first is you need a car to get to Wal-Mart and the general engineering class. The first general engineering class was worthless; I can convert units and plug variables into equation. My professor was also worthless as it seemed he did not know any more than we did.
If change is the only constant, then Clemson’s nursing program is extremely consistent. Each semester, a group of student liaisons meet with the dean of the nursing school to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the current program and discuss potential modifications that can be implemented to benefit future nursing students. The faculty’s receptivity/responsiveness to student feedback has spawned a program that continually evolves into a more effective institution. By embracing the necessity of change during the pursuit of academic excellence and recognizing the value of student contributions, Clemson Nursing provides the highest caliber of education possible.
Football. Everyone around here knows football. Also synthetic marijuana.
It is thought that Clemson is surrounded by cows. However, this is not true. There is a beef farm and a dairy farm associated with the school. Clemson was established as an agriculture school and it is a major part of the school's history. Clemson also has a swine, horse, sheep, and poultry farm associated with it. Clemson also has a great engineering school, so we're more than just cows and crops today!
I wasn't sure where I wanted to go, but after visiting Clemson, I fell in love with the school. There is a great downtown area and the campus is beautiful. One of the selling factors was definitely the lake. Its gorgeous and will be wonderful once the weather warms up again. The people were very nice and overall it just seemed like a really fun place to be.
