The Clemson University family is one of exceptional talent.

Dechiper Magazine from Clemson University, Clemson South CarolinaOur faculty, experts in their fields — engaged in their professional disciplines, whether in their individual research or as part of one of Clemson University's many academic centers and institutes — apply their expertise to the pressing issues facing our nation in the 21st century.

Our students are accomplished as well, including among their number recipients of prestigious awards such as Goldwater, Rhodes, Truman, British Marshall, Udall, National Defense Science and Engineering, Fulbright Scholars, National Science Foundation Graduate Fellowship, Hertz Foundation Fellowship and others.

Clemson University is located in Clemson, South Carolina, which sits in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, surrounded by beautiful man-made lakes — one of which is the Southeast’s largest recreational lake. Clemson is a gateway to the mountains and the Atlantic Ocean, and this prime location provides unique opportunities and an exceptional quality of life. The University is located in the middle of the Clemson Experimental Forest, a 17,000 acre forest that is also used by students and faculty for educational, research, and recreation purposes.
