Every Tiger Counts

Every Tiger Counts

Every Tiger of every stripe is part of what Clemson is today and will be in the future. We need all Tigers to stand-up and be counted as part of our Clemson family and to get involved, engaged and recharged with each other and with our alma mater. If you haven’t already, please take a moment to verify your email address for us. We want to keep you abreast of the latest University and Alumni Association news, provide you with new networking resources, invite you to special events and ask for your help locally in your communities. Update or confirm your email information during the month of March and receive a promo code for FREE SHIPPING to apply to your orders on the official Clemson Alumni online store. Edward Hart ’08 of Greenville did just that and was our winner of VIP Alumni stadium box seats for the 2012 Clemson vs. USC football game!
