Clemson Orientation

Sponsorship Opportunities

NOTE: Informaton on this page outlines the 2014 summer orientation sponsorship opportunities. Updated information for 2015 summer orientation sponsorships will be provided soon; please visit us again!

New Student Orientation educates new students about the exciting and challenging transitions to college life. During Clemson University's New Student Orientation, we hope to provide students and parents the information and resources that will contribute to the students' academic and personal success. The New Student Orientation sponsorship program allows on-campus and off-campus partners to support the orientation process and be recognized as organizations that contribute to the transitional experience of new students and their families. Goods and services provided will support the mission of the programs as well as provide valuable information to new students. Your support enhances the orientation program and the transitional experience of Clemson's newest family members.
