Review Claflin University
I have come to the realization that Claflin is a school for a specific type of person. Specifically, someone who enjoys a small environment and everything that comes with that. During my experience at Claflin, I can say it has been hit and miss. I feel like everything can be so much better if they do more things to cater to students. The campus life is often times nonexistent because students feel as if their opinions do not. However, we are aware that Claflin'S tradition is "academics first", however, some students can only produce in an lively environment. Claflin does a great job of providing students with the tools they will need for their specific major. Unfortunately, the university fails in the department of outlets for students. If we had more to look forward to once we are done laboring in front of a screen for hours, everything would fall into place.
Overall, I love Claflin University! There are plenty of things that Claflin needs to fix but there are plenty of things to love about Claflin as well. With caring professors and a family like atmosphere, Claflin has made me feel like more than just a number. The wait to get back on campus throughout this summer has been agonizing and I am just ready for August to come so I can move back in and see everybody!
Easy access to internships and jobs. Our alumni giving rate is unlike any other campus is the country! The employees they hire are great in terms of professors and faculty, but staff could be better. The career center always sends emails and hosts seminars for students on campus.
