Hi! My name is Amber Allen Mulkey and I am the Coordinator of the Early Success Program (ESP). I serve as the Director of Freshman Academic Programs at Clemson University. This is my second year in this position and ESP is my favorite part of it! ESP is a great group of students and staff that always keep me on my toes! I graduated from Clemson in 2005 with my Masters in Education. I have worked as the Coordinator of Student Life for the Bridge to Clemson program and as a Resident Director at Georgia Tech.

I am married and have 2 year old twins, Oliver and Matilda. I love to run and bike and have found that Clemson is a great area for outdoor activity! My favorite foods are chocolate chip waffles, dots and cereal. I am a sugar junkie. My favorite TV show is Modern Family. I look forward to meeting you all in the coming months!

Emma Reynolds

Hi! My name is Emma Reynolds and I am from Darlington, South Carolina (Home of the Nascar track Too Tough To Tame!) I am a first-year Graduate Student here at Clemson, working with Freshman Academic Programs and the Early Success Program. We are so excited to have you! I graduated from Presbyterian College May 2013 with a BS in Psychology and English with an emphasis in Creative Writing. At PC, I was involved in Alpha Delta Pi Sorority and Student Government and enjoyed working in the Student Life Office. I loved the small school atmosphere but am excited about being at a large school for Graduate School!

I am addicted to caffeine and trashy reality television shows and I can never really say no to pasta. I love cooking and have recently gotten into running. I have been known to tell the occasional corny joke and I laugh a lot...I'm a firm believer that laughing is the best medicine for anything! I cannot wait to meet all of you! 

Bryce Conti and I am a rising sophomore Graphic Communications major, Clemson Univesrity, Clemson South Carolina

Bryce Conti

Hey y’all! My name is Bryce Conti and I am a rising sophomore Graphic Communications major. I will be one of the peer mentors this summer. I am from Greenville, South Carolina and I graduated from J.L. Mann High School where I was the editor of the yearbook and involved with many other organizations. I am the oldest of three kids, and both of my parents graduated from Clemson University. So I guess you can say my blood runs orange. Fun facts about me: I love Chick-fil-A (but who doesn’t), I’m addicted to Coca-Cola, and I love talking to people.

I was a part of the ESP program during the summer of 2013. My past summer at Clemson during ESP was one of the most memorable summers I’ve ever had. I made 39 new best friends going into my first year of college, which made the transition much easier. I’m so excited to meet all of y’all, and help make THIS your best summer yet! GO TIGERS!

Kelsey Austin

Hey everyone, I'm Kelsey Austin! I'm a rising Sophomore majoring in Sociology with an emphasis of Criminal Justice (I think this is finally what I want to study). My hometown is Hanahan, SC which is right outside of Charleston. Back in High School I played a little bit of tennis for my school (but I'm not very good) and I babysat to make my money. At Clemson, I am in the Criminal Justice Club, LUCU (Latinos United~ I joined that with my Hispanic friend), and I attend FCA. Oh yeah, and I am obsessed with sunsets, my dog and chocolate milk :)

I was a part of the 2013 ESP program, and it was honestly the greatest thing that has ever happened to me! I love Clemson and would not rather spend my college career, or summer of 2014 anywhere else! My hope for each of you is that you form bonds with one another this summer that will be so beneficial and comforting for your freshman year as you are transitioning and starting busier schedules. So excited to meet all of you! Go Tigers
