Claflin University Reviews
Review Claflin University
My first year at Claflin University was not what I was expected, but better then what was in mind. Attending Claflin will seem like a lot of work, overall the University was just giving you the feeling of being about business no matter what and come in effort and encouragement while in style doing so. The only thing I wish I could change was just being more active and more sociable. I really enjoyed my first year at Claflin University!
Claflin University is a school that becomes home. You develop bonds with your fellow peers, staff, and faculty, and find that you will quickly have found a new family within these people. While this is good, you will also quickly find out that you are no longer capable of having privacy or secrets on the campus. With such a small pond of people on campus and the surrounding area, it is easy for information and rumors to be spread quickly. The academic standing of the school is fairly good, and many of the instructors are extremely knowledgeable on their content area.
I am a currently a sophomore majoring in Elementary Education. My first year at Claflin was very interesting to say the least. I am a outgoing person by nature so that made it easy to navigate the lanes of integrating myself into the close , family-style ambiance that Claflin exudes. The faculty, staff and upper class students made it very easy to want to be a part of the campus. From the first day I stepped on campus on move-in day, I was excited for the future that Claflin was going to prepare me for. I truly claim the school's guiding principle of committing to excellence.
