"Dont worry about getting perfect grades. Use your degree as leverage to get out of the rat race and own a business. Unless you want to be a corp slave for the rest of your life. Good luck SS or retirement."

"Committed Faculty who are very much interested in the students' career development. Use of high technology packages like data sharing and transfer packages to enhance learning and innovation. However, student financial support most times does not meet the levels for a very conducive learning environment"

"The historic preservation is a great program with great professors. The professors are the best in their fields. The con is the price of the program and living in Charleston is expensive."

"Clemson University program joins with College of Charleston and is located in Charleston. Could not ask for a better place to study. Very hands on, many classes are located on site/out in the field with local preservation professionals."

"My time at Clemson was nice, but I could have envisioned a much better one. Part of it was my own doing, but there are aspects of Clemson's area and University life that I will not miss when I am gone."

"I think it is a great program. The only negative I really have is that Clemson is a really small town ignoring the university, and some professors are really smart and great in the field, but poor teachers."

"I love my graduate program because it gives you opportunities in different trade offs of the vehicle, i.e. Power trains, Vehicle Dynamics, System Integration, Vehicle Electronics and Manufacturing Processes. After a common semester in which they touch up every trade off, so that in later semesters you can choose what interests you the most. Well the only thing i hate about my program is that the campus for Automotive is far away from main campus. You miss upon the campus life that you come dreaming about from your home country."

"I think the Communication Studies degree program definitely needs help in hiring teachers that are highly qualified. I had several teachers that fell by the wayside. We also some really great professors. I think this program needs higher rigor and more options for classes. It is very difficult to take certain classes since there are so many students that are trying to get into the major"

"Clemson is an overall amazing place, both culturally and academically. Not only are the majority of the professors intelligent and passionate about their subjects, but they are approachable and truly want to see you, as a student, succeed. The programs and student body are diverse and enriching, and Clemson is a world full of a myriad of opportunities to take advantage of! Whether you are passionate about academics and decide to get paid to be a tutor, or if you love being active and join a club sport, there is something for you to take part in for a break from your studies. The resources available for students are virtually boundless, as is the school spirit. Clemson becomes your home away from home, whether you expect it or not. A quality education that immerses you into your field of choice (at least with the animal science program) on top of a fun community of people, an emphasis on safety, and the strong foundations of unity make Clemson a wonderful place to be. It isn't perfect. But it is darn near close, and the faculty and staff are continually working to improve shortcomings in the various departments. As a student, I am active in the marching band, an officer in the Dairy Science Club, a student tutor, an academic pursuer, and a Tiger, through and through. My counselors and professors have been phenomenal, and the experience I have earned is priceless. I have made lifelong skills, and lifelong friends, all of which I look forward to using and keeping in touch with even when I am no longer a student. Because even then, though I will not be on campus, maybe not even within a near radius of Clemson, I will always be a Tiger."

"Clemson is a great school which tries to focus on the students. The Biology department has a lot of great instructors which help students as much as they can. Clemson truly is my home and I would not have wanted to go anywhere else for my undergraduate program. I highly recommend studying abroad, it's a great learning experience that I would regret had I not taken that opportunity."

"Incredible program that is based in the heart of preservation country. Clemson University has teamed up with the College of Charleston to provide a graduate program like no other in the preservation field. Could not have asked for a better location to study at than in Charleston."

"The pros of my graduate program are the in class theory to application. Another strength would be the practicum and internship experiences to really apply what is learned in the classroom. The cons would be that you could easily slide through the program if you do not make the personal choice to go the extra mile and make the experience your own."

"The program prepares students for life long learning and an active learning environment. Also, the support from the faculty and staff towards students in their academic, professional, and personal development is unparalleled. The only con with the program is the fact that the parking near the building is a little bit of a hassle. As long as you don't mind walking or paying to park every day it is fine."

  • Degree: Communications
"Clemson's MAPC program has been an incredible experience so far, and I have only completed one year! I have taken courses in digital design, technical writing, rhetorical theory, and workplace communication. While the courseload is heavy, the faculty are incredibly supportive and help you tailor your degree to whatever you want to study. I plan to go into the field of UX/Usability and already feel prepared to make a lasting impact on the working world. When I applied to Clemson's MAPC program, I was offered a graduate assistantship. Because of that, my education has been completely paid for by the school... which is the best part of this program. Although the area surrounding Clemson is no bustling metropolis, there are bars and cute restaurants downtown and in the surrounding areas."
