    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.

    All of the buildings that you have classes in are relatively close. The farthest walk you could possibly have would take you 15 minutes. When the weather is nice out, you can always find people playing various sports on Bowman field or tanning out on Y Beach.

    There are a lot of extracurricular activities for students and it's easy to get distracted. My advise is to put school first and complete all assignments then enjoy the activities because it's easy to get caught up in your social life.
