University Description
"Clemson University offers countless opportunities for students, faculty and community members to participate in decades of tradition, improve quality of life for their surrounding communities and pursue academic challenges. Ranked as the 25th best national public university by U.S.News and World Report, Clemson is a vibrant student-centered community that thrives on leadership, collaboration and a winning spirit - in academics, athletics and life.To become one of the country’s top-tier research universities, Clemson University has combined the scientific and technological horsepower of a major research university with the academic and social environment of a small college.

Region Description
Clemson University and the surrounding area offer everything a college student needs. Plenty of outdoor - and indoor - recreation is within a 30-minute drive.If you’re looking for outdoor entertainment, the campus borders the 900-plus-mile shoreline of Hartwell Lake where swimming, skiing and sailing are favorite pastimes. The mountains are less than an hour away and provide areas to canoe, kayak, white-water raft, hike, camp, snow ski and fish.Indoor recreation is a lot closer to home, and Clemson’s downtown provides many dining and shopping possibilities. Plus its walking distance from campus.
Greenville is about 45 minutes east of Clemson and accessible by either I-85 or U.S. 123. The city has been recognized as one of the top fastest up-and-coming cities in the nation and offers infinite possibilities for food, shopping and other activities. Lined with gorgeous Crepe Myrtles and oak trees, downtown has an old-town charm with modern flare. From fine dining to wine tasting to minor league baseball, Greenville has so much to offer. One visit won’t do it justice.
Cuisines ranging from Thai, Indian, Mediterranean, Japanese, Italian and especially Southern combine to make Greenville a melting pot of culinary adventures.
Falls Park located in the heart of downtown, offers a beautiful, lush setting for an evening walk or a morning jog.
Not far from the park, Greenvilles minor league baseball stadium, Fluor Field, resides in the West End. Little brother to the Boston Red Sox - with the stadium modeled after Fenway Park - the Greenville Drive is a lot of fun for a small amount of money
