WHAT I LIKED

I cannot really compare my education experience with another experience, but I found my time at Clemson tolerable with the right people. I loved the area because it was surrounded by nature. There were moments of beauty and moments of dread but I made it. That is what I am the most proud of.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The student population was 80% white. I was not comfortable and sometimes felt alienated.

4.0

WHAT I LIKED

My experience at Clemson so far has been great! I really enjoy the atmosphere and meeting other students. Some of the classes are really tough and require lots of studying. I'm sure it's like any other school but I really enjoy it!

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

So far I haven't found anything that I don't really like.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The admissions, financial aid office, and other departments left a lot of important information out when advising me.

WHAT I LIKED

The students and faculty are one in a million. We are all essentially competing with each other for the same jobs which you would think would cause a rise in competition among us, but that's not the case here. Everyone wants you to succeed and offers opportunities to do so. They instantly made me feel a part of the Clemson family.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The administration as a whole lacks communication and transparency with the student body.

WHAT I LIKED

I loved Clemson's beautiful campus. The people there are also all super friendly and you have no problem making friends!

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Parking at Clemson is not the best. It is very difficult to find parking if you bring your car to campus
