Braiden Burdette - 12/27/2019
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2018
"Clemson University is an outstanding school to attend. The people you meet, places you'll go, activities to get involved in are all worth the price of attendance. There have been so many incredible moments made with so many new friends that you can make and keep for a lifetime. Clemson is a small community in general, which makes it feel like a family atmosphere. Chose wisely with the type of major you'd like to study because majority of the curriculums will be very demanding and challenging. Make sure you spend a lot of your time in the books to prepare you for what you want to do."

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2014
"I thoroughly enjoyed my degree program. It was the perfect blend of language and science courses. My degree program required an internship abroad which was a very rewarding experience. Clemson is a very STEM oriented institution. For those interested in math and science careers, Clemson is a great fit. I enjoyed campus life at Clemson. The university is a large one, but still has a "Clemson Family" feel, that you will hear mentioned often."

"Clemson University is the shell of a once great university. It is now too focused on football and money. The school is transitioning to take in more students and lowering its standards of education . If you enjoy football the school is good, but I hope you dont want to watch any other sports because football gets all the funding. The school is also great at hiding its problems. Every week there is a new tragedy that only the students hear about because it makes their life so much more challenging. Just a few weeks ago one of our recreation. Facilities burned down and the dorms flooded. Thankfully the students got put into a condemned out of use dormitory. This brings up the point of historic buildings, which are gorgeous but not the most useful. While the school is building a bigger business school because they know they can accept more students that way they do not build new facilities for the majors that the school was built for such as engineering, and agriculture."

Marion Watson - 12/31/2018
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2019
"My education was very rewarding and allowed me to further my career in Biology. The classes were very interesting and the professors were very accommodating and friendly. The financial aid department was very willing to answer any questions I had and helped me navigate through my options. Clemson was definitely the best choice for my masters degree."

Alison Turbeville Kaster - 5/29/2018
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 1994
"My experience in the nursing program at Clemson was rigorous and thorough. I felt prepared for my field upon graduation, knowing, of course, there was more to learn, but I gained the critical thinking skills to be a successful, professional nurse. I have served the communities where I've been planted for 24 years now and continue to do so; and am always proud to claim Clemson as my alma mater. Go Tigers!"

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2017
"Clemson University is a great school where everyone feels like family as soon as you walk onto campus. Once you are a part of the family, it follows you wherever you go. The Clemson ring is iconic for students and such an honorable tradition to get to participate in. Once you get your Clemson ring, from then on, just at a glance, people recognize you and connect with you. The alumni are active and helpful in opportunities during your undergraduate time and post-graduate careers. Their name goes along with prestige and is recognized by many graduate and professional programs by its rigor and how it prepares their students. Going to Clemson helps you to expand your community and connections that couldn't help prepare you for the rest of your life more. It will be a decision that will carry you more places than you would dream."

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2009
""There's something in those Hills"! Many people don't understand the magic Clemson has to offer until they step foot on campus. When you step on campus it feels like home. It has this family like atmosphere no matter where you go. From your peers to your professors-everyone there is willing to help you no matter what. The professors really helped me prepare for what life was like inside the classroom. I felt ready on my first day of teaching because of the experience I had at Clemson. I wouldn't change a thing about my experience there."

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2011
"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."
