    The food here at Clemson is better than I could have ever imagined. We get treated to the best tasting deserts and all you can eat food that ranges from seafood to a good hamburger.

    The meal plan is great and there is usually a wide variety of things to choose from. Just be aware of the large number of coming in at the busiest parts of the day.

    Clemson dining is fun for all of three weeks, then you realize there is nothing to eat and there are only three dining halls. All of which are extremely far from one another and not worth the walk. Schilleter is closed on the weekends so thats horrible if you live on that side of campus because it's at least a fifteen minute walk to Harcombe every. single. weekend. The food you pay for is really expensive and that's not even open on the weekend either. Clemson needs to step up their food game.

    Clemson offers an awesome all you can eat buffet all day everyday. All I can say is be careful with gaining the freshman fifteen, it can sneak up on you quick!

    Food and dining is pretty great. There are two main dining halls (Harcombe and Schilleter). They offer a variety of food and there are plenty of places to sit. Just make sure you get a good meal plan.

    Unlimited meal plan is the way to go. The food in the dining halls aren't 5 star, but they aren't McDonalds either. You get more than what you pay for.

    For a meal plan you can go to two different dining hall options, but their are also things called Paw Points that come with the meal plan that you can use all over campus until they run out.

    There is a large Greek presence on campus but it's definitely not the only thing to do.

    I am extremely disappointed in the greek life here, it is small and very secular. If you aren't top tier you will get bashed on and looked at funny. The mixers are only on week nights which is insane for a school that is so academically focused and it forces you to choose between social life and academics.

    Very important. You don't have to join to have fun though. I'm still pretty involved in partying without having to pledge.

    Greek life is somewhat big at Clemson, but not to the point that you have to be in one. I am not in a sorority, and I am friends with people who are and aren't in sororities and fraternities.

    Rush is in the Fall. There has been a higher number of students rushing in recent few years.

    Greek Life is awesome at Clemson. Sure the recruitment process is a bit overwhelming with it being the first and second week of courses, but it is so rewarding. You automatically gain hundreds of new friends and sisters. You get plenty of opportunities to participate in events, community service projects, and philanthropic functions. Greek life is an all around great program at Clemson.
