What Students Are Saying

3.97 Average Rating
Clemson has a beautiful campus, and has so many things to offer its students. Clemson also has a staff that is always willing to help its students. Most of all, Clemson makes you feel at home and the bond between fellow students and faculty members feels like family.
Kristen from Latta, SC
Clemson make four years seem like four weeks - once you get here, you never want to leave. The culture here is bubbling over with enthusiasm for everything from the arts to zoology (and for once, that isn't a simplistic advertising platitude). As soon as you take that first step onto the campus, you will fall in love with the sheer beauty of the campus and the easy Carolina smiles that grace everyone's face.
