Experience at Claflin University

Hey friends, currently in the thick of considering my college options and Claflin University caught my attention. It seems like a place I could thrive, but what's it really like being a student there? How do academic rigor, campus life, and professional opportunities hold up from a current student's perspective?

Hi there! Claflin University is known to be challenging yet manageable, and the professors are really invested in student success. One of the things many students enjoy the most is the supportive atmosphere; it's a tight-knit community where it's easy to make friends, and being in the small town of Orangeburg, SC means the student experience is concentrated on campus.

Unsurprisingly, then, campus life is quite engaging with lots of student organizations and events. Regarding professional opportunities, many students are able to land internships through the university's connections, which can be a great opportunity to apply what you're learning in the classroom to the real world.

It's also worth noting that as an HBCU, Claflin has a strong cultural and community spirit which adds a lot to the college experience. Of course, every student's experience will vary, but from what I've seen, Claflin might be a place where you can truly thrive if you're looking for a close community and a supportive academic environment. Hope this helps!
