    If you are on the edge about attending, you must go to a football game! Not only will you get to see the beautiful campus but you will get a feel for how close and supporting the college is.

    Try to get involved in organizations from the start. College is a much bigger world than high school, so it can be hard to find friends. But organizations really help with that, as well as choosing a major that you love. Also work hard your freshman year, so you set a good foundation for yourself with your habits and your GPA in future semesters.

    Take a tour of the campus and if you know what interests you have for a major, try to schedule a meeting with that specific school to meet faculty, professors and students.

    Campus, academics and social activities are outstanding. Beware of Financial Aid Dept. Quoted the incorrect numbers of hours required for my scholarship and found out 2 days prior to start I lost my $7500 yearly scholarship...for my last 2 years. Tuition is more like 27k instead of 20k.

    Work in high school so that you can receive merit aid from Clemson! Clemson wants to recruit great students and you can greatly reduce tuition cost with hard work in high school.
