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!
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.
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.
