Clemson University Reviews
Review Clemson University
Clemson University far surpassed my expectations of college. As a freshman, I immediately was surrounded by other students who became life long friends, teachers who were willing to help and support me in my learning, and athletics that brought the whole Clemson community together to cheer for the Tigers! It is challenging to NOT become involved through all the on-campus and off-campus organizations. It is true what they say about Clemson being the happiest school, everyone is so friendly and support each other through thick and thin. The surrounding lakes and mountains as well as the beautiful and historical buildings and monuments throughout Clemson makes its environment beautiful and peaceful. "There is something in these hills..."
I am absolutely in love with Clemson. I am from Pittsburgh, PA, so living in the South is a big change, but it's a large part of Clemson's appeal. The campus is stunning and nearly every person you see walking around will smile at you. I always feel welcomed and safe around campus. There are so many clubs and organizations to get involved in at Clemson, the choices are overwhelming. The D1 sports are a great selling point too; football games may be one of my favorite things about Clemson! The faculty members I have interacted with have been great and very helpful: professors, academic advisers, etc. The academics at Clemson are pretty challenging, especially in the Honors College, but there are many resources such as tutoring and Peer Assisted Learning sessions at the Academic Success Center. Clemson is a fun, safe, welcoming environment in which students are encouraged to thrive.
I love it at Clemson, and if I could do it again, I would definitely make the same choice! My professors have always been smart, kind, and fair, and they challenge me in ways that make learning interesting. While there's been a fair amount of construction in the last few years, campus is still beautiful, and all the new facilities are definitely worth it! As for athletics, they can't be beat! Free tickets to every game? Yes, please! The local area is safe and has so much to do- I can't imagine going anywhere else.
