Clemson Tigers "bleed orange," as we say, but this University is so much more than a color or a degree. Here, our students find what inspires them, learn how to be leaders, create their own paths, thrive in internships, dive into research and simply discover who they are, both academically and personally.
U.S.News & World Report ranks us as one of the top public universities in the country, but Clemson is more than just a top-tier academic institution. This is a place where our students are challenged academically, exceed their own expectations and prepare themselves for their future career path and a lifetime of meaningful contributions.
The Center for Career and Professional Development partners with employers to provide access to meaningful internships and cooperative education opportunities. That includes the UPIC program, which offers paid, on-campus internships working alongside faculty and staff in your field of interest. Clemson is ranked No. 2 in the nation for best career services by the Princeton Review.
Our academic programs are rigorous and challenging, but that's what makes a Clemson degree so valuable. Our graduates leave Tigertown equipped with the skills, adaptability and top-quality education to take on whatever challenges they encounter.
With 4,600 students in more than 110 graduate and professional degree programs, Clemson faculty and students are reimagining the world we live in.
It's true. Our students love Clemson — and we can't blame them. With rigorous academics, unique learning opportunities and a vibrant campus life, Clemson is the perfect mix of academics and fun. Princeton Review has it right.
In our thriving Living-Learning Communities, undergraduates share residence hall space, staff, programming and resources with other students in their field of interest.
There are more than 400 ways to get involved on campus from student government, service efforts, religious groups, social events, military organizations, performing arts ensembles and much more.
Nearly 25 percent of our student body is involved with Greek life on campus through social and service sororities and fraternities.
Go for a run, sit and study, or just enjoy the sunshine on the shoreline of Hartwell Lake, which adjoins the edge of campus.
