Clemson University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (23)
I definitely enjoyed my four years at Clemson, but I definitely feel that I could have been more challenged in my field at another school. I chose Clemson because it was the best public in-state school for me, and while I felt very welcome there, there was a definite lack of diversity. A "southern" style Greek life also permeates the campus, which can be appealing to some and annoying to others. Tuition is also very expensive for an in-state school. The facilities are great, and the town is beautiful, but if I had the opportunity to choose again I would have attended a school out of state.
Clemson University Health Science program has something for everyone. Whether you are going to professional school, pursuing healthcare administration, are wanting to promote healthcare, or wanting to be an ultrasound technician, Clemson's Healthcare program sets you up perfectly to get the credentials and certifications you need.
Clemson offered a unique experience, a plethora of opportunities to grow, and an invaluable education which I've leveraged throughout my professional career. The atmosphere and culture differentiate Clemson from other universities- once you are part of Clemson, there is a mentality that you are family and I find that type of community rare. Clemson is unlike any other college out there and I feel grateful for the opportunity to have attended such a communal school.
I have a major in Biology and I'm also in the Honors college here. I selected Clemson University as well as this emphasis of study to better prepare for attending medical school in the Summer of 2017. Clemson's rigor, opportunities for challenges, resources and comprehensive programs have definitely assisted me on my journey towards a career in healthcare. I have been able to delve into traditional biology and chemistry classes while also having the opportunity to do study abroad, take courses in music, sociology and even religion. I think the Clemsons combination of rigor and flexibility to take courses outside my major has been instrumental in making me a more inquisitive and well-rounded pre-medical student.
Overall I would rate my time there as a 3.5 out of 5. When I was accepted to Clemson. I ended up graduating with a BS in Marketing. As a freshman I began as a Business major and in order to continue coursework for my degree, I had to place into the Marketing Program with a 3.0 and keep it. The curriculum was rigorous with 3 levels of calculus, 3 levels of accounting, 2 levels of finance and one required applied science, in which I chose Human Biology. The instructors were relatively knowledgeable of the courses they taught, but the teaching style was difficult to follow for certain classes, and little help was offered if I fell short of understanding. Diversity of students on Clemsons campus is still lacking. During the time I was there, the most diversity was seen on the football team and rare glimpses of exchange students leaving Jordan Hall (engineering building). The majority of the student population is white, and right before I graduated, the African American student population grew to about 6%. The lack of diversity makes it hard to feel an inclusive culture, but the one thing that I felt brought us all together was football. As far as services offered to students: financial services were always difficult to deal with and career advising and networking opportunities were slim to none unless you were an engineering major. I am overall satisfied with my degree and feel that it set a stable foundation for my understanding of marketing. As an alumni of Clemson, I've found that opportunities for networking have been a lot better post graduation. I do believe the school is doing better now and continues to strive for change.
Overall, Clemson University's Accounting program is rigorous. Most professors are more than willing to work with you to aid in your learning. You also emerge very prepared to network and succeed in the professional world. There is also a Master's program for those pursuing a CPA license that have not yet met the hours requirement for the license. Most of the upper level courses are challenging, and require students to dedicate a large number of hours to each of them in order to be successful.
The best school ever, fun, great education, very helpful
Great school. Everyone is very friendly. The population is small enough to feel like everyone is connected, but big enough to where you are meeting new people all the time. The Parks, Recreation and Tourism Department has a lot of really great professors who are very influential in the field. You can receive a great education there if you want it or you can "Party Right Through May." It's what you put in.
Clemson has a beautiful campus and the "Clemson family" is definitely a real thing. Soon after arrival, you get the feeling that everyone is glad to be there and glad that you are there as well. Clemson takes education seriously, so you get a good value by going there (especially if you're in state). We also take football seriously, and it's a great environment on game day. Clemson is also situated in the beautiful South Carolina upstate with scenic mountains and lakes in close proximity. I can't imagine my college experience any other way.
