CLEMSON — Clemson University is ranked at the top of U.S. schools in student sports participation and community relations, according to The Princeton Review.

In its new “The Best 378 Colleges: 2014 Edition,” the organization used student surveys to rank Clemson No. 1 in three categories:

“Everybody plays intramural sports”
“Jock schools”
“Town-gown relations are great”
Clemson also is ranked highly in other categories in the annual edition:

7th: “Their students love these colleges”
9th: “Students pack the stadiums”
11th: “Best career services”
12th: “Happiest students”
13th: “Most conservative students”
Princeton Review includes profiles of each of the 378 schools in the guide. In Clemson’s profile, the book states: “the students love Clemson, and professors love Clemson students.”

It adds, Clemson offers a “friendly atmosphere of a small town college, with the advantages and opportunities of a huge university,” including study abroad, myriad research opportunities and Division I athletics.

“Clemson is one big family; [you] immediately bond with other Clemson people you meet around the world,” the book quotes one student. “There is something in these hills that is something special, and you will know it immediately once you become a member of the Clemson Family.”
