The average college student has a lot of tough choices to make: Deciding which speech section they want to take, selecting which fraternity/sorority they want to pledge too, wondering what they’re going to wear (or when to show up for that matter) to the big football game and even choosing which filter they should put on that 2 a.m. Snapchat that’s headed back home towards their ex. All these choices might be important to the college lifestyle but none of them can make or break your experience like choosing a spot to live.

To help make that choice a little easier, we’ve decided to run through a list of real estate agencies and rental properties around the Clemson campus on Google maps and have selected the top 10 based on their star rankings and pulled out a few choice reviews for your reading pleasure. Oh, and by the way, choose the dog filter.
