    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.

    The food quality was good. My one complaint is that the steamed vegetable were almost always over-cooked (i.e. mushy). There were many options at every meal, but after having a meal plan for two years, the food got a little repetitive. It was still good, but I wanted a little more variety.

    The food at Clemson is all you can eat, but it can be hard to find good things or healthy options especially protein.

    Cafeterias have stir fry bars, all kinds of fresh food plus lots of choices at the grill.

    The dining halls are not as bad as everyone says they are, but they're not fantastic. There are menus online and you eventually figure . We did finally get a Starbucks on campus though.

    The food is disgusting, but I also think all commercial food is disgusting. It's okay, I guess. Sort of.

    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.

    ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND GREEK LIFE. At least go through rush and recruitment in the beginning of the year, because it is an amazing way to meet people. For guys the hazing is kind of rough, but for girls there is NONE. Like seriously I offered to DD older sisters and they wouldn't let me because they didn't want it to look like hazing.

    Greek Life is a very popular option on Clemson's campus. I would say that the majority of students on campus are involved in Greek Life, and there are so many fraternities and sororities that almost everyone is selected to be a pledge somewhere if they choose to rush. Those that are not Greek are not pressured or discriminated against because of their decision - I am personally not involved in Greek Life, and have plenty of friends that are Greek and there are no issues whatsoever between us.

    Everyone I know in Greek life loves it. I hear rush is exhausting and stressful. It takes up a lot of time and it's very expensive. I'm not a fan but I'm in the service sorority, Gamma Sigma Sigma. Alpha Phi Omega is the service fraternity. They don't cost nearly as much, they revolve around service, and they can't be associated with alcohol, but you still make friends and wear letters.
