What is your overall opinion of this school?

Clemson University is an absolute dream school. I have always wanted to attend and got the amazing opportunity the fall of 2015. I came into this university super nervous, but this place has made me feel at home. I have made so many amazing relationships with other college students and have formed close relationships with my professors. I would recommend this university to anyone.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think that Clemson University being located in South Carolina gives it the impression that it’s a strictly republican/conservative-like school. However, this is not true at all. I must admit that I too thought Clemson would be more conservative, even though I have lived in South Carolina for the past few years. Clemson University, surprisingly, is almost the opposite. The amount of cultural diversity and acceptance that exists here at Clemson is remarkable. I say this because it was not until 2012 that I moved from Thailand, and I do not feel at any time, out of place. Everybody is friendly with others, and there is a strong bond over how proud we all are to be tigers. It is impossible to go around campus without seeing students wearing clemson orange. Because of the academic requirements, the atmosphere is unlike that of a high school. Theres a sense of intelligence and dedication in the air. The people you meet are all able to hold intelligent conversations with you also, which is a nice change from talking to people who could care less about education. Clemson University being the best thing about the city of Clemson, there are many nature trails and places to go sight seeing nearby campus to keep you active. The weather is nice almost all year round, however it does get chilly during the winter. The dining hall food at clemson is not the best, but most of the time they produce food that actually has good flavor to it. Another thing that can be said about Clemson is that we recently won the national championship in football so coming here would mean being a part of that legacy that I hope we can live up to for the years to come. Overall I have to say that I am more than happy that I chose to attend Clemson University and I am excited to see what opportunities it brings.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I want to play my part in society by helping innovate technology into the world we live in. I've always been "tech-savvy" and getting a degree in Electrical & Computer Engineering aligns with my personality and passion for technology. I hope to one day build or help build groundbreaking technology that will change the course of our future.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Clemson University immediately gives you that college-feel. You'd be surprised how many universities and colleges don't achieve that atmosphere. I absolutely love Clemson's atmosphere: the academics, the sports, the people. There is just a particular caliber of academics here at Clemson. Students genuinely care about their studies, rather than just the social aspect of what college has to offer. There is a nonstop motivation among the students and faculty. I attribute that to the overwhelming school pride. There is not a lack of school spirit and enthusiasm. Of course, winning the national championship in football has something to do with that. Overall, Clemson University is what you hoped college would be like and more.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Clemson! I am from California and was scared I wasn't going to feel like I belonged but I feel so at home here. There are so many organizations and activities, it seems like you would have to go out of your way not to make any friends or find people who are similar to you. Football is a big deal and gamedays are a ton of fun! That being said, it kind of dies down in the spring but it's relaxing to have your weekends back and there's plenty of other stuff to do! There's a good mix of really challenging classes and also some easier ones. We have a good free tutoring system where people who got A's in the class previously sit in on class and then hold tutoring sessions for the class which is really helpful. Most of my professors are approachable and are willing to help outside of class.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Clemson is a school where the students really matter. I feel that I truly belong here at Clemson and I know I'm not the only one that feels that way. The school spirit and pride in our school is something that you won't find anywhere else, we are all a family here. I am so happy I made the choice to attend Clemson and if I had the opportunity I would choose it over and over again!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I initially began looking for schools, I wasn't sure what direction I wanted to choose. I had looked at small, liberal arts schools like Wake Forest, to big state schools like Alabama, and each exhibited several characteristics that I wanted in a university. I was looking for a university that had the feel and spirit of a big school, and the close-knit community and relationship of a smaller school. Clemson was the perfect balance I had been looking for. The opportunities students have at Clemson are endless, and there are so many features that make Clemson such an amazing school. The academics can be rigorous, but your professors are there to help you succeed. Saturday’s in the fall are always special with game days where everyone, from alumni to students and staff feel like one big family rooting for the football team. The beautiful campus, numerous intramural sports, clubs, and other groups are the perfect opportunities to meet people with similar interests. Clemson is by no means the perfect school, but it is everything I could’ve wanted, and it is undeniably worth coming up, touring the campus, meeting the students and recognizing why it is one of the greatest schools in the nation.

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.
