Pride DEFINES Clemson. Anyone can be pals with anyone through this powerful bond. We all love it here. LOVE IT. The size of Clemson is the perfect blend of a state school with all of the spirit it entails but also the small community feel without the aggrevations of constant traffic, crowds, etc. Bowman field is the place to be on a nice day. Bells are played by hand in the tower of Tillman throughout the afternoon and can be heard through most of campus.
Professors are absolutely available and willing to meet with students outside of class. The most unique class I have taken is a Plants in Medicine, Magic, and Murder lecture. Don't be fooled, however, it is NOT interesting. But for the most part, classes are inspiring and I hardly ever feel like I am wasting time by going to class. I am in architecture and it is unbelievably vigorous but so eye-opening and I enjoy every minute of it.
Clemson is quick to embrace all types of people from a variety of backgrounds. I feel like Clemson is one of the few southern schools to have such an open mind about ethnic diversity. Students most often sport jeans to class, often accompanied by an orange or Greek life t-shirt- very chill. Financial backgrounds vary and are hardly at all ever even revealed. Students are politically aware but not too terribly active. Students do not discuss future salaries. We are entirely too laid back and place much more value on what we find interesting in the subjects we are studying.
