Favorite question on a tour: “What made you choose Clemson?” I love this question because of how it lets me talk more about why I decided to go to Clemson as an out of state student. The main reason why I chose Clemson is because of how the university has both a big and small feel to its community. I always run into friends on my way to classes and I’m constantly meeting new people. People here are incredibly friendly and want to get to know you. Clemson is able to feel like a super close community while also having a huge alumni network!

Advice for jumping into college life: Get involved in everything you can that peaks your interest!! There’s no better way to meet new people and form new relationships than by joining something where there’s other people that share your interests.
Advice on how to choose a college: Write down 3 or 4 things that you definitely want your university to have, and then narrow your list down from there. Tour those schools, and see whether you can imagine yourself on each campus. Pick a place that feels like home.
