What Students Are Saying

3.61 Average Rating
Claflin is a great school. Me coming up, I always wanted to attend a HBCU and when I came to Claflin I received the total HBCU experience. As a freshman I was very nervous but anxious at the same time of what college would be like (social life, grades, parties the whole nine) but the people here really help make my transition from high school to college really easy to handle.
