Clemson University Reviews
As a transfer student, I was nervous about my upcoming experience at Clemson. I began to wonder from my previous year of college whether or not college was for me. However, within hours of starting Clemson I began to realize that college here was going to be great. My professors have embedded within me a love to read, and I have read more books that were not required by my classes, within my two years here, than I had in all of middle school and high school. Even though I did not focus on the social life at Clemson when I first started, I quickly was able to find friends from all backgrounds, some being from various clubs and fraternities, to those on the football team. College game day at Clemson is quite possibly the most exciting sports venue in the United States! Clemson has given me the ability to grow as a person, both academically and socially, and I see myself as being a better man since coming Clemson than I was two years ago before I enrolled here!
Clemson University is a wonderful school for boys to become gentlemen and for girls to become ladies. The southern culture allows college students to mature exponentially, preparing them for the working world. Clemson has wondering academic programs as well as a wide variety of organizations that profit student involvement. The organizations bring students together and build dynamic relationships with the students and faculty. The town of Clemson is a huge hangout stop for students and is also kid/family friendly! Saturday game days are a great way for everyone in Clemson to gather in the town and rally before watching the Tigers play. Clemson is safe and has several modes of transportation to keep students safe at all hours of the night. I recommend visiting Clemson University and adding it the list of schools to apply to. Go Tigers!
Overall Clemson University is a great school! People both care a lot about academics and social life and there is definitely a good balance of both. From the football, to the campus, to the academics, and the overall experience, Clemson is definitely a great choice. You really feel that you are apart of the “Clemson family” and want to show off that you went/go here. The only negatives of the school is that if you are not part of an organization or greek life, social life can be hard to find and hard to meet people. Also, for the most part, on campus housing is not too great besides a few places. Overall tremendous school though!
